Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just me?
I seem to have three different bags that I constantly need, and yet, my stuff is never in the right place. First bag: Diaper bag. This is the bag that I send my son to Stay & Play with, church nursery with, Mom's Morning Out... The stuff that is just his. None of my coupons, wallet, gum attached.
Second bag: The combo. The diaper/purse bag. The one that holds his crap with mine thrown on top. This one is for grocery stores, play dates, restaurants... etc.
Third bag: The actual adult purse. The very few times that I get to feel like a woman and not a mom. This holds my stupid stuff that I really don't need, but think I might. Like:safety pins, sharpies, gum, wallet, hair brush.... lipstick....
My problem is that I can never seem to get all the things I need in the right place at the right time. I leave him at Mom's Morning Out, only to discover when I pick him up, that I didn't leave but 1 diaper. And 2 poops later they are giving me the old stink eye. Or my personal favorite was when I went grocery shopping & reach in the diaper bag for my wallet & have to tell the lady it's in my "other diaper bag" out in the car. I then RUN through the store for it, looking all kinds of crazy.
I can not wait for the day that I can stop the madness. It's enough to drive me insane. Does anyone else feel this stress? Any suggestions, you know, besides, "Shut up Lady and just check your bag before you leave the house to make sure you have everything you need." That's not a good suggestion, my husband tried that one, he's limping today. I'm just saying, you don't want to go there.
