TAT: What's in my Bag?

...baby bag that is. 

I can't remember the last time I actually carried around a purse.  Sad, really, but true.  I have to admit that I got a small thrill out of Melissa's newest choice for her weekly Toddle Along Tuesday.  I have a slightly unhealthy obsession with US Weekly, and one of their weekly columns is "What's in my Bag", where the mag takes a peek into the thousand dollar bags of the rich and famous.  I find it fascinating, and look forward to reading about the celeb bag contents weekly!  Although my bag is definitely not as interesting...here's what this mama of 2 carries around in her baby bag.  Yes, ALL of this crap was in this bag! 

Meet my Kate Spade diaper/work bag. 
  A look inside ~ View #1
A -  A plethora of random toys and teethers for the amusement of B whenever needed.  I just realized I had wayyyyy too many in there!  I cut down a bit. 
B - My most favorite gum, sugar free Extra dessert flavors, Strawberry Shortcake.  Great for curbing appetite or sweet tooth.  T likes it too.
C - Bib - of course it's purple!
D - Baby bow.  You never know when you might need a bow.  lol.
E - Boogie Wipes for my snotty (and teething) kiddos.  I have to admit I tend to use them as well.
F - A hair band for impromptu workouts or changes in hair style. 
G - Back-up snack for T-man.  Fruit snacks are always a slam-dunk
H - diaper changing mat that came with the diaper bag...purple...of course!
I - My blackberry.  Hopefully soon this will be an iPhone

A - Dollar bin vanilla scent (which I am obsessed with) hand sanitizer.  This is good when my 4yo insists he doesn't need to wash his hands because he "swears" he didn't touch anything in the bathroom.  Not a fight I choose to fight.
B - Wipes.  I tried the reusable container but the wipes dry out and it's too bulky.  Sorry environment.
C - exta pair of socks for me (don't ask)
D - My water bottle...love!  It's camelback or bust for this girl.
E - my Tiny Diner (obsessed!!!)  If you don't have one...you NEED one! 
F - Touch-up makeup (lip gloss & Oil control blotting papers...I can't live without them!)
G - My wallet
H - Diapers...size 3's (at least 3)
I - Work badge
J - A quick sun hat for B...just in case.
K - Aerobics schedule for my gym
L - My iPad (yes...it's also a Kate Spade case that matches).  I use it to control my ppts while I teach, and I read it at the gym on the treadmill.
M - gym pass
N - travel toothbrush and toothpaste
O - Make up bag
P - Formula holder turned Snack trap (oops...needs to be refilled!)

  1. You have a lot more stuff in yours than I do in mine, but I don't carry it every day. It sits at home during the week unless I have to run out with the munchkin somewhere. Instead I have my gym bag and purse during the week. If I condensed everything down to one bag I'm pretty sure mine would look like yours!!

    And I had been meaning to ask you about your little placemat thing - I loved that when we met for lunch. I think I need to get one for Andrew.

    1. I'm IN LOVE with my tiny diner! Love love love! My MIL has one too. We both freaking love it!

  2. I love your bag. So cute (and you're so prepared).
