This bag takes all my crap where it needs to be and in the process makes me very happy.
Every day I think life with kids is an endless merry go round of stuff. Stuff coming in, stuff going out. As I tell my three year old almost every day there is only one of me and there are two of you. Yes, of course, there is two times the love but with the addition of an infant my stuff-quota seems to have exploded. Not to mention the groceries, diapers, library books, hats and sunglasses.
My garage is not attached to my house. Mama doesn't enjoy making multiple trips to and fro- this is where my bag comes in. This baby goes with me everywhere I go. I load it up when I leave the house in the morning with lunchboxes, clothes, bottles, water and all the rest. I use it the same way in reverse. Instead of carrying an infant car seat and six plastic bags trying not to curse in front of the newborn with his delicate ears, I pile everything into my big ass bag. It's like a wagon - with arm straps.
I'm saving time, energy and countless plastic bags. It's my super shortcut.
