Oh the places we go

Ever feel like you're carrying the weight of the world when you travel with little kids? Like there are way more bags than people, and each single bag outweighs the heaviest child. Sean thought I was overreacting those first few months when Ty was a baby but he has seen and believed, (and been caught without what he needs,) enough that he doesn't argue with my arsenal of luggage. I'm always on the hunt for the perfect bag and lately I've carried one big diaper bag with all three of my kids' stuff in it. If I can literally shoulder the weight then it's much easier than each one having a separate bag, especially if we're going somewhere for just a little while. Once again CSNstores has me on the hunt for a purse small enough to fit into my huge diaper bag. See, that's perfect. A big bag for the kiddies that isn't maybe the cutest thing but just when I see my cuteness diminishing I can pull out a small, pretty, and functional little purse. I've been browsing for hours.

That may or may not be what I've done two days in a row during nap time.

It helps me brave this heat, too, looking at winter-ish purses. It should make me depressed but I'm able to zone out and dream about the day when jackets don't cause heat rashes. Or the day that a snow cone doesn't sound like the best thing I've ever eaten. Or the day that I don't seriously consider running around outside when the sprinklers are on. When the kids are in bed.

Okay I'm done now. I'm off to the pool.

I have been using the skip hop duo deluxe double for a few months and LOVE it. It has tons of pockets and plenty of space for all I need for both boys if we will be gone several hours. It is big, but I'd rather carry big with everything I need! I have a 'how to pack for two' post I am going to work on as soon as I get caught up. I can't imagine packing for three!

I can't wait to see what you pick as your "small fit inside a diaper bag" purse. Ha! I don't think "Mary" and "small purse" go together. I am totally just kidding! You always have the best purses! You'd be proud. I just bought a big diaper bag that I really like (to use on our trip because his little cody bag wouldn't be big enough to pack what i need for the airplane) and it is cute and looks like a big purse...almost. AND my little green purse fits inside. You will find something super cute, I know! Oh, and the diaper bag you carry, the one with the little flowers, is SO pretty! Good Luck shopping!
