It's another Saturday Afternoon, which means it's time for another October Afternoon project!
this uses 5 & Dime
Since October Afternoon has a sweet vibe of vintage childlike images, I thought it would be fun to include a story with each post about my life.
SATURDAY AFTERNOON STORY TIME:
this is my purse:
and you want to know why it's my purse? Well first because I think it is so gaudy it's gorgeous! But also because it has not only become my purse, but my diaper bag, lunch box, toy box, and a "mom can you hold this" contraption.
How did this happen to me? It was a slow process. With my first child, I had a sweet purse and the magical diaper bag. You know the ones that are lined and with the diaper changing kit all inside? With my second child, I bought a all in one sling kind of purse that was bigger than I normally wore, but smaller and less obvious than the diaper bag. The third child came and I brought out the same bag again, but also carried a purse. I wasn't as attached to the kid bag as before. Sometimes I left it in the car, gasp! And with this LAST kid, I promise, it's the last kid, I just got a HUGE purse and shove everything in it!
It's called struggling to surrender.
One day I will have to tell you the day I crossed over to the other side. You know what I am talking about right? You were young and cute and everyone flirted with you. Then sometime in your 30's it all changed. It's a sad story. I will tell it when you have kleenex nearby.
