There’s a point in your mom life when you no longer need a full-on diaper bag. You wake up one day and you realize, “I don’t need to tote around 10lbs worth of diaper rash cream, toys, bottles, and 4 tiny outfits.” Your baby stops pooping SO MUCH, and they begin to turn into a little friend. And that’s when you need to transfer to the “mom bag.”
The “mom bag” doesn’t have to be a giant purse, though, mine ALWAYS is, because, what can I say, my mother was always asking me, “Shall we find a nice bag for that?” And I found a nice big one.
Another one of my favorite mothers, a woman to look up to and try to emulate, is Heather of The Coterie. Heather is SO GOOD at keeping things smart and simple. I am sooo bad at keeping things simple. I always feel like I need to do elaborate involved activities that take time and money. For example, I made Ginger fourth-of-July suspenders that she refused to wear. Cute, yes. Necessary? No. Heather meanwhile had her 3-year-old all hopped up for the holiday by teaching him the pledge of allegiance and having him practice with a mini flag. HE LOVED IT!
Anyway. That’s why you can trust her when it comes to what you need for your mom bag. And because Gigi was napping and Heather’s boys are ANGELS, we made a video. Heather has some great things I wouldn’t have thought of! Like a lightweight scarf you can use if you get chilly or you need to wipe up a spill! So check it out!
And because you haven’t seen nearly enough of her lately, here’s the lady who makes me a mom. My Gigi.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by.
