Welcome to “What’s in your changing bag?”; my weekly Tuesday feature where I ask one Yummy Mummy (or Daddy) to share the innermost secrets of their changing bag, and the five items they couldn’t possibly live without!
This week I’m joined by Kate from Two Beans and a Bump; a beautiful, bright and bubbly blog!
Hi Kate – what beautiful photos! Please can you tell us a little bit about yourself.
I know exactly what you mean about Pinterest!!
What would you say is your favourite thing about being a Mutti to your three beautiful children?
What three words would you use to describe Motherhood?
Great choice of words.
We’ve heard your favourite thing about being a Mutti – what would you say is the hardest thing?
Without a doubt the guilt. Do they eat enough fruit and veg? Do I play with them enough? Are they bored? Do I shout too much? Why didn’t I take them here today? Am I on the laptop/iphone too much? Its never-ending, but I guess that helps me to be the best mum I possibly can.
Guilt is truly horrible – especially the older they get.
How do you preserve/maintain your sense of self?
Yes! Another nail painter! I totally agree.
So the last question before we find out what’s in your changing bag; if you could share one piece of Motherhoodly wisdom with us all what would it be?
Excellent advice – thanks, Kate!
So, down to business: what make is your changing bag?
My bag is a Pink Lining Yummy Mummy tote, in the multi-colour bow print.
A fellow Pink Lining bag owner – they are fab.
What are the five items in your changing bag that you just can’t live without?
1. Sophie le giraffe. A popular toy in many changing bags, but for good reason. Every baby that has one seems to love it – I think its to do with the texture of the rubber against their gums, plus its pretty easy for them to make it squeak. Ayden loves his Sophie and always gives it a big gummy smile when she’s taken out of the bag. A life-saver at many a restaurant table!
Thanks for sharing the contents of your changing bag with us, Kate! I love your phone case, and I’ll definitely be having a read of your cloth nappy experience as it’s something I’m considering at the moment (Nick isn’t convinced either!).
