Just in case I forgot...

...I am a mom.
And I just have to laugh. Sometimes.

Today was grocery day. We could no longer make meals out of Ramen, leftover Christmas ham and a few cans of chicken noodle soup. I had a list, I had an agenda. And I had two rambunctious children who were not really excited to be grocery shopping today.

While searching for my wallet in my mom-purse (you know, that insanely huge handbag that doubles as a traveling kitchen, art studio, mobile office, and urgent care?) for my wallet when it was time to pay.

I place a few things on the counter, as I spy my bright apple green Vera wallet at the bottom of my purse.
I pay. I return my belongings to the depths of my purse.

And then I notice it.
A pair of bright purple/pink/does-it-really-matter Tinker Bell panties. Size 2T. On the counter. At the grocery store.

Oh. My.
It's good to be prepared in the even that Cailyn has an accident and needs them.
I, on the other hand, was not prepared for the cashier to see that. Or the people behind me in line.

And for the record, I am cleaning out my mom-purse this evening. I wonder what other ridiculous things I will find.

Hilarious! Thanks for sharing that bit of humor.. I too have a very similar purse, but now that I'm carrying a diaper bag again, the purse is not quite as stocked as it was before Noah's arrival. :)

Read your article, if I just would say: very good, it is somewhat insufficient, but I am

still tempted to say: really good!
