Here is what is in my “IT” bag. I call it that because if “IT” happens. Then “IT” is okay because I have “IT” to fix “IT”. Just to note, before kids I thought my “IT” bag was this cute little Louis Vuitton number I used.
Here is what makes up my “IT” bag:
Baby wipes- can be used to clean up anything!!!
Diaper- still have one that needs it but also useful when the waiter gives my child a glass instead of a cup with a top
Ziploc bag- can be used to hold IT or bring IT home (also can be made into a hat to avoid the rain)
Tide stain stick- two kids. Enough said
a Tiny bottle of water
Lip gloss- can be used to get zippers to go it can also be used to undo knots, and help slide out splinters, and glossy lips are sexy (can also be used by my son without his father flipping out)
Umbrella- can be a weapon if necessary, it is also great to open it up and let your child use it. That way you can spot them in a crowd if they wander; shade anywhere.
$20 cash and $1.00 in quarters
Fruit strips- always have food
Individualized drink packets- makes water into a treat
Tylenol for the kids and for mommy
Floss- you can tie a lot of things with floss
Change of clothes
Benadryl strips that dissolve in your mouth- in case of a bee or food aversion
Bobby pin- those things make super paper clips and I can still pick a lock
The number one item not to leave home without is
Tweezers just in case they decide to put “IT” somewhere that “IT” doesn’t belong
