What's In My Bag

There is a fun "what's in my bag" trend going around in the mama blogosphere and I was tagged to do it next. All of the ones I've seen are for purses...but I haven't carried a purse since Eddie was born. Except on the rare occasions that we go out without Eddie, but then I just throw my wallet and keys into whatever old purse I can dig out of my closet.

So I thought I'd share what's in the two bags I most often have with me--the diaper bag and my school backpack.

Back pack (hot pink, very mature of me, right?)
Laptop and charger
Lab notebook
Pencil case
Laser pointer/presentation device
Thumb drive
Business cards
Small mirror (see me smiling in it?)
Container of ibuprofen and cold medicine
Packets of tissue
Extra hair bands
Sunglasses case
Coupon booklet
Bus pass
Old batteries I need to toss into the recycle bin at school
Assortment of snacks (candies and a bar)
Two chapsticks
House/car keys
School keys (with requisite chemistry nerd permanent pens attached)

Diaper bag (vinyl Petunia Pickle Bottom boxy backpack...worth every penny I paid for it)
Cloth and disposable diapers
Old plastic bags for dirty diapers
Change of clothes and shoes for Eddie
A pair of old breast pads...ew...those have been in there far too long...
An old Snappi for the cloth diapers we used a long time ago
Baggies containing travel size ointments, sunscreen, children's ibuprofen, mama ibuprofen and cold medication, etc.
Tums for Davie
Hydra-Stick (keeps Eddie's cheeks from chapping when we are out on super cold days)
Hand sanitizer
Nail clippers
Extra hairbands
Stain remover packet
Eddie's insurance card/immunization record
Eddie's train museum membership card
Bubbles from a wedding
Color pencils, crayons, and construction paper
Old cell phone of Eddie's

I tag:
Kelly (a student mom who DOES carry a purse!)
Stephanie (a student who isn't a mom)
Leah (a mom who isn't a student)
