In fact, here's some actual examples...
I'm a pretty organized person, but not when it comes to my purse. My husband is frightened of it. He will say- "Where's your phone?" and I will tell him "Grab it- it's in the side pocket of my purse." and then he will get lost in there for at least 2 days and I have to send in search and rescue to find him.
I'll tell you what's in a real Mom's Purse... (If there are small children around, please have them leave the room).
I lined the stuff up by Departments...I knew it was nuts in there, but I never knew I had Departments.
Toy Department: 2 Cars, Silly putty, Some scrabble letters from a photo shoot that I never ended up using, a teether and a clip on Sassy toy
Clothing Department: 5 socks, and a 3-6 month onesie. (Parker is 10 months old).
Food Department: Orange Tic Tacs and Mike and Ikes and an Empty Snack Trap.
Beauty Department: 3 things of Essie Polish (from my Pick Color Friday), 6- count 'em 6 different lip gloss/lipstick and long last lip formulations. I rarely put on any of them. Ever. I often look like a corpse in pictures and think- I should put lipstick on more often and I never do.
Miscellaneous: Wallet, Receipts, loose change, camera lens cap, notebook for random thoughts and reminders, tissues, anti-bacterial wipes, sunglasses, pen, loose change, necklace, wallet, Library Card, trash, an empty sucker stick, and some Goldfish Cracker crumbs at the bottom...Greyson hasn't had those since he went Gluten free in September. Gross.
Items noticeably missing? Diapers and diaper wipes. Yep, 2 kids in diapers and not one single diaper on board. Somehow I left those out and on the counter. Not the first time.
What's in your bag? I want to know...
We had a good and uneventful weekend over here. The older I get, the more I realize that uneventful can be a very good thing.
Here's My Friday Night. Wild.
We went to Target...
Parker is my Muse. Partly because he still lets me put silly hats on him.
I bought a second pair of Paige denimn...they are not the Uniform....but they will do when it's in the wash.
Gearing up for Monday... Mondays are pretty non-stop. I'm not going to lie, Friend. I often wake up like Oscar the grouch on Mondays...my glass isn't usually half full...it is mostly empty...and sometimes cracked...and has dishwasher specks on it.... At least until I get my coffee.
Thank you so much for reading…I write that a lot- I hope it doesn’t lessen it because I still mean it as much as I did the first time I wrote it….even more now…thank you even more for caring….many of you- heck- most of you have never met me…never met Parker and Greyson…but you care...and you care about him and our journey...and you share these words with your friends and the World. Man, I never thought sharing this blog would give my son that kind of gift- Your love. It is beautiful, friend. Powerful. It makes me cry.
