Mom pockets

Yesterday I pulled from my pants pocket 2 candy wrappers, a crumpled, half-eaten Power Bar, a plastic frog, and a rock that I had been told was "very special". The other pocket had a stick (aka power sword light saber) and some sunscreen. Moms--what's in your pockets? And please note: I did not eat the other half of the Power Bar. I have no idea who consumed it, or even where it came from. I can only hope my progeny did not pick it up off the ground, lick it, let the dog have a taste, and then wipe his boogers on it before he deposited it in my clothing. But, like I said, I can only hope.

Most days I can look at what is in my pockets as almost a journal entry of what I did that day.

Dooode - how big are those pockets? :) With 2 kids at "just barely 2" and under, we're still in the diaper bag stage. If you asked me what was in that instead, you'd be sorry you asked.

I'm with Julie- most things still end up in the diaper bag at this point, and that IS truly a scary thing to contemplate!

An even more interesting question for me....what's in your purse? I've moved on from the diaper bag but have a mom purse capable of surviving nuclear holocaust; the depository for all things ever needed for any outing. My husband: Don't you have wipes? eye drops? a diaper? a toothpick? tissues? a pen? a pencil? a mechanical pencil? something to write this down on? pain meds for me? the boys? the shopping list? that paint chip? a wrench? a wrench for DS's erector set? His other shoe? Yes I could go on....and on....and on. And yes, unfortunately, I have that all in my purse. It's scary.

I'm always finding marbles, small rocks, bionicle pieces, hair bands, and candy wrappers. All serious choking hazards for my newly crawling baby...
