What's In the Bag?

So a while back, after seeing what Jen had in her diaper bag, I decided that I wanted to do the same thing. And I wanted to start small, so first I did my purse. Which admittedly has a lot of crap in it. I like to be prepared.

And I have finally gotten around to the diaper bag. So here we go!

The bag:

From one of the front pockets:
Three packs of restaurant crayons, plastic farm animals, a race car, and Nerds.

From the other front pocket:
Todder tableware, and a first aid kit. In the first aid kit: neosporin, band aids, butterfly closures, tweezers, gauze, burn cream, and adhesive tape. I also have a bottle of hand sanitizer, which somehow got left out of the photo op. I'm so prepared, I should have been a boy scout.

From the back pocket:



From the inside:

Snacks, drink mixes, bibs, and small ziplock containers (which are very handy!)

Diapers, pull ups, wipes

Spare clothes. Necessary for obvious reasons.

Toys! And yes, they are almost all from kids' meals. I put them right into the bag while we eat, and they don't get brought out until we are in need of some new 'entertainment'. I highly recommend this - the toys are usually small, don't need batteries, and don't have too many parts. And it's pretty easy to 'lose' the ones that make annoying noises...

I know that some of you have already done this, but if you haven't then I want to know...what's in your bag?!

I did the what is in my purse last year, and I am just so very, very happy to not have to carry a diaper bag around any more! (Although my purse sometimes looks very similar to your diaper bag!)

I now have a little "kit" that I keep in the car - sunscreen, extra clothes, park toys, first aid was a happy graduation day for me the day we moved to the "car bag!"

We have THE SAME exact snacks in our bag. Too funny.

Stacy said...

Wow you are totally prepared for anything. My bag (purse) is mostly full of toys. I don't even carry a diaper/wipes unless I'm out of the car for more than an hour.
