bag of crazy

I would like to take a moment to share with you something that I have been struggling with lately.
Some people carry around lots of worries, others carry around baggage from past relationships.
Me, I carry around socks, tissues, and diapers.
Probably about 15 pounds worth.

Here, in the order I pull things out, is a list of what I carry around with me every time I pick up my mama bag:
1. Rattle
2. Travel case of wipes
3. 4 iWireless (our prepaid cell plan) minute cards. Unused.
4. PetSmart "PetPerks" card - a new addition since bringing home Curious George Hamster.
5. Bottle of Tylenol
6. Travel pack of Wet Ones Antibacterial wipes
7. Small plush airplane rattle
8. Panty liner
9. Bottle of ibuprofrn (which I don't use...?)
10. Tube of M&Ms minis. AKA, emergency bribing tool.
11. Small pink sock monkey
12. Chapstick
13. Spill proof toddler snack bowl. Empty.
14. Plush blue elephant with crinkle body and teething pads for feet
15. Pack of cinnamon gum
16. Travel pack of tissues - 2 remaining
17. Box of 100% juice, another emergency bribing tool.
18. Small container of Bath and Body works hand sanitizer that I hate the smell of...
19. Little People yellow motorcycle (the 1984 version. Classic.).
20. Multi-tool keychain (not attached to keys).
21. Pen
22. Yellow pacifier
23. Wet Ones single packs (4)
24. Flower barrette
25. 1 Baby sock
26. Yellow post-it note pad
27. Small tube of lotion
28. Travel pack of tissues. 3 Remaining.
29. Mac lipstick
30. Red lolly
31. Travel tube of baby sunscreen
32. Travel pack of tissues (2 remaining)
33. Travel bottle of regular hand sanitizer
34. Wallet (oh that's why I can never find it... it's 34 on the list...)
35. Pin from a retreat I went to 2 months ago
36. Rock
37. Camera pouch (no camera)
38. Sunglasses
39. Yellow lolly
40. Pen
41. Travel pack of tissues (3 remaining)
42. Pen
43. Empty medicine bottle
44. Unopened pack of "2 Metal Rings" 2.5" size.
45. Mail in order form for Highlight magazine for toddlers
46. 3 Pennies and 2 dime
47. 1 Mini hair clip and hair tie
48. An alarming amount of sand from the ocean (oh, that's what was all over everything in there).

That's it. That's my mommy bag. This is what I carry around every time I go out. Sheesh. Rest assured, not everything will be going back in. I mean, really? REALLY? Is this what all moms carry or am I just insane?
