So now that I’m a mom, what’s in my purse is a little different than when I was younger.
Of course I have the normal things such as my wallet, keys, and sunglasses. As well as most of the time my cell phone is in there as well.
Now I make sure to always have some sort of snacks in my bag. Whether they are for Cameron or me. Most of the time we have her diaper bag as well that have snacks in there too, but in the off chance we leave the bag in the car, or didn’t bring it because we thought we would be quicker, I like to have something just in case anyone gets hungry.
Wet wipes, hand sanitizer, tissues. There are germs everywhere and I’ve learned that kids pick up everything and anything. So I like to make sure I have something to clean up messes or wipes ourselves down or things we will be touching. Now that we are getting closer to cold season too it’s most important to keep us healthy.
Bandaids. I’m accident prone, and sadly I think Cameron is going to the same way. So bandaids are a staple in my bag just in case we get cut or scraped up.
Hair ties. These are mostly for me because Cameron won’t let me deal with her hair quite yet. But I always feel like I need hair ties to put my hair up.
Medicine. I like to make sure I have some sort of pain meds. I tend to get headaches so I like to have something on me at all times.
Lip gloss or chap stick. It’s always nice to have something to keep your lips moisturized.
Pens. One I’m obsessed with pens. But two it also seems like you need them wherever you go so I like to make sure to have one or two in my bad to write down lists or sign things.
Do you have anything special in your purse? How has it differed since becoming a mom?
