We may not be celebrating a first day of school like many of you out there, but we do have another big milestone that we've been celebrating lately: the end of the diaper bag.
Since becoming potty trained recently, Haley has no need for her diaper bag any longer. It's a happy and sad moment since we've been using the same blue diaper bag for her for the past 2 1/2 years. While I certainly don't miss changing her diapers every day, the diaper bag has been a constant presence in our daily routine. Wake up, give Haley her milk, pack diaper bag, head to daycare. Now that she no longer needs her diapers, why carry around the bulky diaper bag?
On a date night recently, Pat and I went to Target after dinner to pick up Haley a present for being so good at using the potty. While we were there, we found the perfect diaper bag replacement. It's pink, it's girly, and it involves glitter. Oh, and it came with a Rapunzel lunchbox. What more could a girl ask for?
Now, we put her stuff in a Disney princess backpack each day. One more step to her becoming more of a "big kid" and less of a baby.
