As I fiddled around in my diaper bag while waiting “patiently” at the pediatrician for a half hour with my ear-infected 15 month old this morning, it occurred to me just how key those bag contents can be. It’s somehow at the most dire times that I find myself armed with close to nothing. And by that I mean: stripey straws, three pair of toddler sunglasses, days of the week undies (in a diaper bag no doubt, what?) one random block and, wait for it…a Tide pen. All in all, it bought me about eight minutes (with twenty seven to spare.) Of equal importance however, is the bag itself. While I’m still inlove with my Anya Hindmarch “Be a Bag” tote, I feel that this Olympia Le-Tan style would do right by me. No Skip Hop here!
