Mommy’s Graduation Day

So maybe I don’t have these:
But this Mommy’s Graduation day comes with something even better.
Today, I am graduating from Diaper Bag U and accepting my diploma purse.
I have been contemplating the great question of Toddlerdom No, not potty training, the other one: When to move out of the land of Diaper Bags and on to the world of Purses. Do you hear the Hallelujah Chorus? Well I do.
I was playing around online one day, I know.. imagine, right. When I happened upon the most adorable website. Sweet Pea Baby Designs. Adorable Merchandise immediately caught my eye, reasonable prices kept me there.
Then… I saw it.

The Monkey Backpack. Photobucket
Precious, isn’t it?! SOLD! I filled out their easy form, personalized it, and 3 days later I held it in my happy little mitts!
So now we gleefully sing:
‘Nah Nah Nah Nah… Nah Nah Nah Nah.. Hey Hey Hey… Goodbye’ to the adorable yet cumbersome Diaper Bag from ABCand123kids

Buh Bye

and we say hello to a very happy and independent Monkey with his personalized Monkey Backpack, which is fully washable, lightweight and ADORABLE!!!

And a BIG hello to Mommy’s two new little friends.
HELLO gorgeous

Aren’t they pretty! So Sleek, so little, so trendy… so, so, so Adult!! Feel free to do the happy dance with me!

  1. I love the monkey backpack! I recently got rid of my classic baby diaperbag and got a purse too – only mine is more of a tote bag because I still have to carry diapers and such, but I am still so happy to not be carrying that big bulky diaperbag around. Congrats!

  2. Happy Happy Joy Joy!

    I tried that. Fa carried her backpack for a total of 2 hours and then I wound up carrying 2 frickin’ bags instead of one.

    Good luck.

    Now I just keep a change of clothes in the car…Woot.

  3. I have yet to take that leap, especially on longer outings. On the shorter outings I stick a diaper and wipes in my purse, but I still feel nervous that I will always need more.

  4. See, we’re alike, aren’t we? My monkey has the train backpack just like that one with his name. I knew I liked you, toots.

    Congrats on graduating!

  5. With the Middle One, I bought one of those clamshell Baby Bjorn bags for $100 and carried all of two months (it now makes an excellent camera bag)…

    But LOVE the new purses!!! And the monkey bag is PERFECT.

  6. Cute backpack and even cuter purses! I was so happy when the days came that I could get rid of those diaper bags – so happy!

    My sister gave me a cute bag last year for my birthday that is purse-ish and can still hold a diaper and some wipes…I use those for so many things…I generally just keep extra diapers and wipes in the car for emergencies. The joy of NOT LOOKING like your carrying the BIG bag! Blessings, EJT

    It’s always a relieve when you can finally get rid of the diaper bags and into the grown up purses. Congrats!
