Decisions in my life have become increasingly difficult over recent months. With the anticipation of adding another life to our home, I am burdened by the power of over-analysis.
Should we start a college fund now, or would that money be better served preparing our child for college through extra-curricular activities earlier in his or her life?
Are we in the best school district in our area?
At what age should we take Drew to Disney World for the first time?
And most importantly, and the question that has been keeping me up at night…
Which diaper bag should I get?
The function of a diaper bag is pretty straight forward. It holds diapers. Well, it holds bottles too, and wipes, and keys and cell phones and gum wrappers and receipts and lip gloss and whatever else I used to keep in my purse which I will now place in the diaper bag.
And let’s be honest, a diaper bag can define your style as a mother! If it’s too frumpy, your kids will just never respect that you can actually identify with what’s going on with today’s youth. And if it’s too trendy, surely everyone will see that you’re trying WAY too hard to be hip.
So the search begins:
Maybe BoHo is the way to go?
It’s practical, versatile, chic. It’s cool without trying. And it’s neutral so it will match anything.
But this is so cheerful and happy. Maybe I won’t mind changing a doody diaper at the mall if I get to use this super fun diaper bag.
Wouldn’t this look cute with jeans and black top? It’s loud without being obnoxious.
I think I could rock this bag. But I would have to be careful with my stroller selection to ensure this bag would match. If I had the wrong stroller it could make the bag go totally awry!
Now this… this is it. It matches most anything. It’s a cute shape. It’s trendy without being too fad-heavy. It’s classic with a twist.
This is my bag. I must make it mine. But let’s be realistic…I’ll change my mind by the end of the day.
I’ll change my mind because the health and well-being of my child could depend on this. I must carry the perfect diaper bag to ensure his or her happiness in life!
Am I being a bit dramatic??? I am loving this phase of preparing for baby. You think I’m obsessing about the diaper bag, don’t even get me started on the crib!!!
