I read a post written by Kara last week over on Chelsea Mamma about what’s in her handbag and it made me think about how you can probably tell what age someone’s children are by the contents of their handbag.
Like Kara’s handbag, mine used to consist of everything but the kitchen sink when my two were babies, with only slightly less in there when they were toddlers. But now that they’re (almost 10) and 12, my handbag appears to be my own again.
So for no reason other than I want to, I thought I’d share with you what’s in my handbag right now….
I have nothing child related in there at all!
What is more telling to me that I have children of a certain age are the things that are NOT in my bag. For example, my phone charger has been ‘borrowed’, my little hair bush is missing in action somewhere and there appears to be a memory card that has accidentally become separated from it’s home in my camera which has vanished!
I did have the Surface Pro 3 in there that we’re reviewing but that’s been ‘borrowed’ and is now upstairs in Miss Frugal’s bedroom because she needed it to do her homework.
Oh, and while I’m thinking about it, my mints have mysteriously been eaten as I’ve just thrown away an empty packet that I found in the bottom of my bag when I was emptying it.
It seems like everything in my handbag is fair game to be borrowed, stolen or eaten which is the real reason that there is nothing remotely child related in there! The only things that are left are the things that neither of them would want!
And, in the time it’s taken me to write this post, the diary has been snaffled by someone who apparently needs it more than I do!
