Or is it?
I like to think of myself as an eminently prepared person. I’m a former project manager and I used to do a lot of event planning. When I was working an event, I could be counted on to answer all questions, deal with all crises, and produce rolls of duct tape or paper clips out of thin air. It seems natural that I should bring those skills into my life as a mom. My former coworkers would not be surprised if they saw me pull diapers, wipes, clean clothes, a spare tire, a bicycle pump, lunch for 8 people, and a puppy out of my diaper bag if the situation merited it. They would be so disappointed if they saw what I’m really carrying around these days. They’d also fire me if I still worked there because my ability to be prepared for any situation has been compromised.
Here’s what’s really in my diaper bag, the good, the bad, and the ugly!
