So a long time ago, I promised that I would divulge all the things that I consider essentials to a "mom purse." You've already seen the first thing that I consider an essential, and after I took a little gander at all of the totally awesome [if I do say so myslef] lazy mom tips I've posted previously, you've also seen my second and third essential items, too!
So since I've taken SOOOOO long to make good on my promise, I thought I'd jump back in here and feature one of my mom purse essentials for the spring/summer time!
drum roll please...
The Black Wrap
I stumbled across this little number at Walmart several months ago and thought it was cute. I thought to myself, why not keep this rolled up in my mom purse this Spring/Summer for times when I get a little chilly? I mean, come on... I don't live in Texas anymore. I live in the North, where, for some ungodly reason, its still cold in the evenings even when it's the dead of Summer... where, in July you can't plan a pool party for your sons birthday because it will be TOO COLD for the kids to want to get in... where, when it hits 60 degrees, people act like it's 80.... do I need to continue?
So that's what I did. I bought it, rolled it up and put it in my mom purse. I know it's a profound story and we are all better people for knowing it now, aren't we? Plus, you can all now see my bitterness over the Summer temp in the North. Your welcome.
Soooo... I've been using it ever since. I pull it out almost daily and love it! Plus it doesn't get wrinkled really and it's got enough fabric that I can wrap a little darling up in it with me if I needed to! I also like it because when my daughter gets cold I can wrap her up like a mummy and I just think that's funny.
Tune in next week to see my fifth mom purse essential (it's another summer time essential and might, just might have something to do with being cold in the Summer time up North. I'm sure your hoping it is!)
