The futures so bright...I may need to buy a purse!

Potty training Peanut, which one seemed impossible now seems to be coming to completion! The last time I was so excited about reaching a milestone is when she actually slept through the night! She is wearing underwear all day, everyday for 3 weeks. She has had 2 accidents in that time, once when we left her with grandma and once when she was sick and just refused to wear underwear or sit on the potty.

I am so confident we are there that I am fantasizing about purses. I haven't bought a purse, let alone really carried one in 4 years. In the fantasy land that I live in where a money tree sprouts in my back yard and I can buy whatever I want whenever I want I would get something like this:

Beautiful, big enough to hold an extra pair of pants and a pull-up for emergencies but definitely not a diaper bag! But alas my budget can afford is this:

That would be nothing :-).

Maybe if I'm really good and stop whining about how I want a smart phone hubby will get me something like this:

It's so nice to think about going out and looking like a woman, not just a mom. Not lugging an enormous bag filled with everything and anything. I don't even know what is in my diaper bag anymore. We have been on the road so much that things just keep getting shoved in there. I should really clean it out! Instead I am going to continue looking at handbags on-line and dream about the day that I can go out with hubby and not have to change bags first!

oooooooh I love purses. I ditched my diaper bag for a purse a long time ago. I always get mine from factory outlets or as gifts. my MIL bought me a Vera Bradley. I had no idea what those were but apparently they are quite "in" lol

How old is your little one? We start potty training my 21 month old soon!

My little one is 2.5. She wanted to start potty training at 18mo because her big brother was already trained but she was just not ready! I got serious abou it when she was 2
