Parenting and family, served with a shot of vodka

What is all this crap in my purse?

Graduating from a diaper bag to a regular purse is nothing short of exhilarating, especially if you had back-to-back kids and carried a diaper bag for, say, five years in a row.

I still remember the day last year I sold my Petunia Picklebottom Diaper bag on eBay. I was like, “Sayonara, sucka!”

Oh sure, parents still have to pack along some extra items with little kids. But for the most part, I get to carry a handbag I like again, and most of the things in it are mine.

But then one day, I’m at the grocery store trying to pay, and I find myself wading through a bunch of extra items, having no idea how or when they got in there.

How did this naked baby doll (name: Tiny) get in here? Why do I have a Spongebob golf ball in my zipper pocket?

Here are the things I regularly carry in a purse: iPod, wallet, phone, keys, lipstick, a pen, driving glasses and my trusty Rosebud Salve.

Friday, when I went to change purses, this is all the shit I pulled out:

Purse crap

Extra things: A Minnie Mouse play camera, a Red Sox baseball, three stale pretzel Goldfish, a fruit stick, empty snack container, half-eaten Mott’s applesause pouch (lid rolling around separately), Disney Princess Belle’s hand-held mirror, a spare barrette, a kids necklace, some receipts, a grocery list, a blue Sharpie, an extra Bobbi Brown lipstick I haven’t seen in years, and a coupon to the Stride Rite store.

**Tell me I’m not the only one this happens to, please. What random kid stuff is in your handbag RIGHT NOW?

    LOL!! I just glanced at the picture and was like “are those pretzel goldfish?” Gotta look at the positives, at least your wallet was in there? 🙂
