I know that it is more than a little ridiculous that I would write an entire blog post about something like a diaper bag, but wow, I am just so excited! Just to clarify, no, this is not "technically" a diaper bag. It is a very large purse with lots of different/separate/handy compartments that make it a perfect candidate for a make-shift (and much prettier and less expensive) diaper bag!
I know that it isn't very diaper bag-y, and I also know that it is ultra feminine for someone who is having boy...but here is my thinking. I'm having a little boy, but I am a girl. ("What?! No way!" you say.) I carry the bag, I keep all of my stuff in it just like a purse...I should pick something that is...well, "me." I have also decided that this rule extends to:
1. My "Udder Covers" (which are VERY feminine and pretty - and thanks so much to my Mom and my friend Andrea for thinking of me! It was fun getting little gifties in the mail. I love them!) And by the way, can I just ask : What is UP with calling them "Udder Covers" anyway? Boo to that. Boo, I say, boo! Ha! As if we mothers don't feel cow-like enough (with all the lactating, and breast-pumping, and suckling infants and such) now we need to wear a nursing cover called an UDDER cover? Ew. (Be that as it may, they are definitely a great invention and very cute...I'll give them that, but UDDER covers? Double ew.)
2. My baby sling. Now, I know that is may be pushing it, since both Baby Bob and I are technically "wearing" the sling...but I get the feeling that he is quite confident in his masculinity and he won't mind one bit if I wear a really cute sling. He can handle it. He's cool like that. So I registered for this one. Maybe I'm getting carried away with feminine...what do you think?
So, anyway, back to the girlie diaper bag...
Isn't it so cute?
Valentino came out with a line of gorgeous leather handbags, with gorgeous leather flowers about two years ago. I loved them. They were so darn pretty... but since I didn't have an extra $1,900.00 buckaroos lying around (nor could I ever justify spending that on a bag when there are still hungry people in the world) I set out to find a great knock off. And a few months ago, I finally did...and it was $150! (and NO I do not think that is a good or exciting deal. Not at all what-so-ever.) I could no sooner spend $150 on a bag than I could spend $1,900.00 on one! (I'm a big old cheapie, I know.)
So yeah, in my beloved St. Georgie this weekend, I found this lil' gem for $26.95!!!! Ahhhhhh! (scream and jump up and down with me now, here we go, one more time.) Ahhhhhhhh! So, there it is. My new diaper bag gets a post all its own. Love. Love.
Less than 9 weeks to go!!! (Can you believe that?) My, how time flies when you're not throwing up 24/7.
Check out this mom's inspiring story, and have a great Tuesday!
