This is my purse.
I know what you are thinking. Wow! What fashion sense! What class! What style!
OK, so it looks like a "mom purse". I know I'm not fooling anyone. I was NEVER going to carry around a mom purse. Truth be told, I have a few more of them at the top of my closet. This purse is everything I have never dreamed of.
It has a zipper top, which is a necessity when running around with children. Or, children running around with my purse.
It has vinyl sides. Yes, I said vinyl. Say what you will, this purse instantly wipes clean. It is great when the stomach flu hits. Oh, I kid. (I hope.)
It is HUGE. Therefore, I am prepared for any and all emergencies. And, I have the world's strongest right shoulder.
All of this for under $20.
I know, I know. You are jealous. Carrying around your $400 purse and it doesn't even measure up to my Target purchase. What can I say? You were simply taken. That's what you get for putting fashion before function.
But, someone in my family IS in love with this purse...
To Sweet Pea it is a treasure chest of all that she holds feminine.
Whenever we are out, she can remain entertained for long periods of time just digging through the contents of this mom purse. Her favorite finds? Chapstick, lipstick, lip gloss (yes, I NEED all 3), lollipops, gum, mints, granola bars, pens, pencils, sunglasses, pictures, bows, barrettes, and a mirror. Let's not forget the checkbook that makes an awesome doodle pad. And, stamps that make excellent, but VERY expensive, stickers.
I am just wondering how many more years until she realizes that I carry a boring, old, fashionless "mom purse"?
Maybe THEN I won't have to share my gum...
