Premature purchase

For a long time now, I can't go shopping without checking out the baby and toddler sections. One thing that has always caught my eye for some reason are the diaper bags. I don't even know if I will actually need one as I don't know the age of my child to be but they always interest me. Unfortunately, I have never found one that I really like. I don't want it to look like a traditional diaper bag but I want it to be really cute and classy and just the right size-not too big or too small.
Well--today in the most unlikely place (a Hallmark store) I saw a diaper bag that I absolutely loved. It is a vera bradley bag and you can't even tell it is a diaper bag. It is solid black quilted material and could easily be used by me as a carry-on bag or for anything if a diaper bag is not needed. The really cool part is that the inside is all zebra print--even the pull out changing pad is zebra print. It met all my requirements. I just couldn't resist and I bought it. So now I have a diaper bag and it is exciting to me.

Good for you! It sounds lovely.

Have you ever heard of the book, The Secret? The premise is that you should 'act' like you already have (or are going to have) what you want and the positive vibes will help you to achieve it. Heck I think that buying a crib, crib set and painting Miras's room early on did that for us. I have been reluctant to purchase anything this time around and we've had delay after delay. So perhaps I just need to purchase the crib and prepare the room and it will happen?!?

In any case, you will find lots of uses for your bag even if you don't need to cart around diapers. I now carry a huge Mom purse so I can bring everything but the kitchen sink with us whenever we leave the house! My work colleagues make fun of me cuz I carry it to work too.

I have that diaper bag too! It's pink though. I LOVE IT! You are right, it does not look like a diaper bag at all and is very comfy to hold. Good for you!

Nice find. A great reminder to keep your eyes and heart open because you never know what you'll find.

Diaper bags are great for coloring books, snacks and toys... mine will be filled with Barbie dolls!

It's fun making purchases like that! I hope you're doing well. I'll save my comments about the idiocracy of some of the required paperwork. Take care, Susan
