As a "work at home mom", I worked at night and had my kids with me all day. From buying groceries, to dentist appointments, to running business errands, or getting my car serviced. I had to do it all with impatient and tantrum-bound children. My most crucial line of defense was having a purse/bag prepared with everything I need, such as snacks, drinks, small toys, wipes for messes, and diaper change supplies. But I also needed MY stuff... and I didn't want - or need- to carry a large diaper bag.
I tried many different bags, looking for one with the right pockets and organizational design to suit my needs. None of them were "just right". I sew, so I butchered bags, added on pockets...I even thinned out parts to make them smaller and lighter. I fantasized about the perfect "Parent Bag" - For those of us with toddlers and/or school-aged kids. Who need some of the functionality of a diaper bag, but don't want the bulk, the weight, or the look of a diaper bag.
I also had ideas how to make this bag even more functional, more compact, and the most parent-friendly for the active parent. Easy access pockets for keys and phones, waterproof pockets for food and dirty stuff, quick draw wipes, and a special trash compartment. (My kids are always handing me trash!) Plus, when I don't have my kids with me, and I don't need to be carrying all that stuff, I still want a nice looking bag on me. One night, I sat down and I made my DREAM BAG. And now we are moving it into production!
The manufacturing process has been long, slow, and complicated. But we are on our way! Stay tuned -- We should have some pictures of our first prototype up soon!!!
