When I first learned I was pregnant I went on a bit of a diaper bag shopping spree. I bought big bags, little bags, cute bags, and not so very practical bags. I looked for something that could hold what I imagined babies might need. I hunted for something my husband might be willing to carry when we were out and about. And I looked for something fun, because I was not yet a new mom and I still hadn’t gone on cute-overload.
When my daughter was born I returned most of the bags that I had purchased (and one very, very fancy and completely impractical bag that someone gave us as a gift) and got a practical baby backpack. It had lots of compartments including a thermal pocket for baby bottles. It had handy straps and a changing pad. It even had multiple openings to make everything easily accessible even when juggling a baby.
It was a great bag, but it wasn’t exactly fun.
Now that my kids are bigger and I no longer have a need for a diaper bag, I have just one question. Would it be odd for me to carry this diaper bag around? Because it might just be too cute to pass up.
