A Mentos Moment. What’s in your purse?
I’m in my car a lot. From school drop-offs to pick-ups, errands, soccer practices and let’s not forget taking my hubby’s work badge up to him because he forgot it…again. Since I’m in my car all the time, I have to have a big enough purse to carry my life. While I sat at my oldest son’s school waiting to pick-up, my tummy growled. I had nothing in my car to eat. I started rummaging in my purse past the coupon flyers and bulging wallet, my tampon case and under my zip-locked inhalers and epi-pens. Then, in between my Kindle Fire and my dead Ipod Touch (which has been overtaken by my youngest and is only ever given back because it is dead), I see it. Could it be…could I have forgotten about my last role of Mentos? I reached in with my shaky hand and pulled out a complete roll. Not a half eaten with gross purse crumbs on it roll, but a sparkly, minty, complete roll. Sure it had a gum wrapper stuck to it, but other than that it was perfect. I sat in my car, popping one Mentos after another with a Cheshire smile on my face. Sometimes it’s the little moments that mean the most.
What little moments do you have in your purse? Are you very organized and neat and have a tiny purse? Or, are you a hot mess with a suitcase purse filled with everything and the kitchen sink? What must you always have in your purse? Let me know.
I’m a little purse hot mess packed w/ receipts, half eaten packages of fruit snacks, pens that I can never find and forget I have, half eaten lollipops, crumbs of???, coupon book, gum wrappers, and of course my phone. When one of my little hot mess purses overflows I pull out essentials and move to a.clean purse OR if my husband is driving us somewhere I take the time to clean it out. My phone, can’t live without my phone, not for games or gossip, but to be available if one of my lovelies needs me!!
I wish I could transfer from my hot mess suitcase purse to a hot mess little purse, but I just don’t have it in me!!
A black Sharpie is a must! Out to eat with the entire team? Need it to write names on cups. Boys fighting on the way to practice about who’s athletic cup is who’s? Write their name on it! Seriously, that has happened!
The Sharpie has a special place next to insurance cards and lip gloss in this mom’s purse.
Ugh. Please forgive the misuse of the possessive who. Ugh. . .
I love the sharpie idea. We would have something for all the Sporting KC soccer players to sign autographs with, alothough with my luck the cap would come off and make my off white purse look like a spotted cow! I just realized you said athletic cup…gross! I can’t think about writing on other boys athletic cups :). We had to do laundry for the whole team our last out-of-town tournament. I cringed at writing names on stinky socks and sliders (sports underwear). I draw the line with athletic cups!
