The mission of a mom-centric lifestyle website should be to offer it's reader the best advice you can get in terms of life management and home organization. Readers should be guided and encouraged to run their lives and families in a smooth, organized fashion. Um, that's not really where we're at right now tho so this is the best we've got for now. We have a goal to get it together in a couple years but it's a process we're currently working on with our therapist. In the mean time, here are the top six things we believe every mom should have in her purse.
This is a tough one, but try to remember to put your wallet back in your purse after seeing your kids slide it under the couch. It's a well-known fact that an estimated 82% of mothers do not have any room for error in their schedules. For example, you probably already know that it takes 12.67 minutes to get to the grocery store after work and that you have to leave the store with exactly 5.42 minutes to pick up your kids on time. Forgetting your wallet is a disaster of monstrous proportions. You’ll have to go back to the store with your kids, even though you were just there. This incident can equal up to seven sessions in therapy.
A mysteriously opened diaper
This is very helpful to have because it doesn’t look dirty but for some reason it’s open. You never really know – has this diaper been used? Is it clean? Eventually you’ll have to resort to using it and you’ll get to question whether or not you're qualified to be a parent.
Severe cold medicine
Finding someone to watch your kids when you're sick is so difficult it’s close to impossible. You’ll have to like bribe babysitters or ask your spouse to change career paths. When you can’t make it happen – it’s so so rough. Make sure you have your favorite cold medicine on hand at the very least.
An obvious necessity because nothing gets recorded when you buy something with cash. No need for anyone to know of any daily donut or starbucks purchases.
Receipts are great because you can never find the one you need but get to be reminded of when you bought a food processor a year ago that you never actually use. This is also probably how your spouse will eventually find out about your donut and Starbucks purchases.
Dark lipstick (skip the concealer)
People should know how tired you are and dark lipstick really brings out those dark circles under your eyes. Applied well enough, it could potentially lead to people offering to do a favor for you or two out of sympathy and concern.
