My Purse

Topic for this week is to share what is in your purse.  A woman's purse is like a secret place.  I remember as a kid, my mom's purse contained everything you could ever want or need.  It was not huge, but still she always had the answer in her purse.  We were never allowed to look in it, because it is rude and intrusive to go into a ladies purse.  In fact, to this day I feel strange looking for something in her purse, even when I am being directed to do so.  My husband would never, ever go in my purse for something.  It is a confidential satchel of stuff.

With that said, I am going to spill out the contents on my purse.  In the spirit of full disclosure, I got the idea for this topic as I cleaned my purse out a few weeks ago, so things aren't that bad.

The main pocket has the usual stuff, my wallet, the kids wallets, sunglasses, gift cards, store loyalty cards, etc.

The side pocket has our family mascot, Captain.  He is a sheep finger puppet.  He occasionally comes out when the kids are being really bad.  He is a harsh disciplinarian.  He is also super funny and can keep them entertained.  Captain has crayons that he shares as needed.  The other side pocket has emergency paper, to go with the crayons.

Finally, the pile of receipts I pulled out of my purse!

My purse is no longer the receptacle of kid stuff.  I no longer carry snacks or juice boxes.  Generally, all I have is my stuff.  Check out what the other ladies are toting around at: Froggie, Momarock, and Merrylandgirl
