Oh I have one! I paid for something with a credit card last week and the cashier asked to see my ID. So I absentmindedly flipped my wallet open and turned my ID towards her and she looked confused and said, "Uh..." So I looked at my ID and there was a sticker of Mater (from the movie Cars) over my picture.

Yup, the Morpher. Looks pretty darn similar to my red cell phone I gotta say.

I was just thinking of this the other day when I went to pay for something and took my wallet out and it was covered in glitter animal stickers.

Frankenstein never scared me. Marsupials do. Because they're FAST.

That'd be two diapers and a wipes pack. Don't leave home without them.

Motherwort tincture.

My purse is small--just big enough for the barest of necessities.

My pants pockets & the console of the minivan are the places to find barrettes, buttons, shells, stickers, abc gum, lollipop sticks, hankies, crayons, acorns, pretty rocks, special sticks, bits of yarn, etc.

My purse is usually pretty clean and kid free. My car is kid zone totally though. So nothing at the moment, other than pictures and a couple cute little papers with ds drawings on them.

I have several purses. One is my "out with the kids" bag - which I normally expect to have kids stuff in it.

My other bags are for ME, though.

However, the oddest stuff still ends up in them sometimes...

Oh, yes. I don't even go there...

A tiny pair of pink panties, three rocks and a pine cone. I don't carry a purse though, so these were all in my pocket.

A dirty diaper. I meant to throw it away in the store I was going into but got distracted and found it the next morning. Fortunately I wasn't stinky.

I recently found a half eaten stale bagel in my bag.
There is also no shortage of apples with two or three bites taken out of them...my friends find these in their homes after we leave too.

I don't carry a purse or handbag, however, my pockets are pretty full.
Right now my most mom thing would have to be kleenex. Some of them probably used

An immature coconut from a trip to the Bahamas. It's about 1 inch by 2-1/2 inches long, rolling around the bottom of my purse. It's Dd's "courtesy bottle." I'm supposed to sprinkle her with it's contents when she is feeling rude, in order to restore her courtesy.

I have sprinkles in my purse.

Why do I have sprinkles in my purse?

All over the bottom...not in a bottle or in a cupcake wrapper. Just there. I guess someone decided my purse needed sprinkles.

I also have a disembodied plastic hand in my purse, but I know where that came from (I inadvertently shoplifted it from the thrift store yesterday. Sigh.).
