the smell of my desperation has become a stench

Small clutch and wristlet

Things with my diaper bag have gotten a little out of hand as mountains of wipes and hand sanitizer and burp clothes erupt at the seams. So I was looking for something small that I could shove my wallet and iPhone into when I run quick errands without the baby so that I don’t have to lug that huge trunk of diapers around. I found this adorable handmade clutch at the Foster Kade Deisgns Etsy shop (she also makes very cute nursing covers), and it’s the perfect size for just those two things. However, you just know that it’s a matter of time before I’m shoving diapers and wipes into this thing, and next thing you know I’ve got seventy different diaper bags, all shapes and sizes, sitting on every surface in the house.
