the practical mommy bag

Can you complete this sentence? I never leave home without _______________.

Most people would probably answer "without my mobile phone" or "without brushing my teeth". Want to know my answer? I never the leave the house without my little guy.

For a hands-on mom like me who doesn't really have a choice but to tow the little guy around town, function usually trumps form when it comes to dressing up and accessorizing. This is especially true with bags. I've never really been a bag lady. I don't lust over bags the way I do with shoes. But it's not say to I don't appreciate a good tote. I'm still a girl at the end of the day, you know.

What bag does a practical hands-on mom like me use, you ask? My bag of choice is the Longchamp Le Pliage. It's lightweight, roomy and easy to clean. It fits all my essentials including the little guy's. I don't bother lugging a separate diaper bag for Bud. Just one bag is all I can handle when I have to trail him. Did I mention I haven't really changed my bag since summer started? Why bother? I'll just change to a different color at the end of the season.

Curious to see what I carry around with me? Here's a look....

1. wipes 2. extra shirts and diapers for the little guy 3. sticker books 4. crayons 5. sippy cup 6. mobile phone 7. lip balm 8. baby sunscreen 9. body spray in warm vanilla 10. antibacterial gel 11. toy of the day 12. hand cream 13. wallet 14. video camera 15. granola bar 16. sunnies for me and the little dude 17. raisins

What's in your mommy bag? Please share.

Matteo & I are joined at the hip too! He has no nanny (since birth) so he goes where I go.

We pretty much carry all the same stuff except that we dont bring a book, sunnies, and sunscreen.

The time we spend with them now is precious. I don't regret any minute of it. The sunnies and sunblock are true essentials for us here. I never really wore shades in manila but here it's a neccessity if you want to see where you're driving. Thanks for reading :)

I cannot agree more! Le pliage (specially the shopper's tote) is such a practical bag! It's very roomy and not too pricey so if I end up staining it, I won't cry buckets! :D
