Okay dads, by now you’ve all had the epiphany that having a kid or kids also means having a free pass to carrying a fabulous man bag. I see you. Some of you opt for something more rugged and nondescript, while others go full-blown for a designer tote. I’m not one to judge the exterior of your bag (at least not yet – until I design my own), but I certainly will tell you what its contents should be. I have almost seven years of experience, so I know exactly what you need in almost every situation, and can tell you – these 10 items are crucial:
You don’t have to take any of my advice, but after you ditch your diaper bag, having a small “dad bag” is very useful. Mine personally never leaves my kitchen counter or my passenger seat unless I’m out for the entire day. If you don’t have one, find one that suits you, buy these ten items, and you will always be prepared. Just wait until you see a random mom fumbling through her purse for wet wipes and you beat her to the punch. You will feel empowered, and you will never leave home without that bag again.
