The Black Hole


I paid 50 cents for it at a garage sale. It is huge.

And it holds huge amounts of crap.













Exhibit A.













Exhibit B.

Since the box of crayons and the cup of Cheerios had spilled in the bottom, I figured it was time to clean it out.

For the record, I never carry toys in my purse. All of those toys and books were things my children decided they must take with them on a two minute trip to the grocery store, bank, etc. and they inevitability ended up in the Black Hole.

How does that happen?

Ahh. It happens to the best of us. I have been known to have a spare pair of undies (size3/4) in my bag. CAN'T WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW!!!

My black hole is the backseat of my Jeep. Like yours my Little Man must take every toy in his room with us when we go anywhere...even as you mentioned if it's a mere 2 minute trip.
All those toys end up staying in the backseat since for some unknown reason they are never as important coming out of the car as they were going in. It drive me and hubby nuts. I can only imagine what it will be like when Girlie Girlie starts playing the same game. My only hope is by then her brother will no longer be doing it.

I KNOW! Church is the worst. Everyone brings some kind of little toy or stuffed animal with them, then they have all their sunday school papers and who is expected to hold all of this stuff? Me. And my purse. I carry a much smaller one but it still have a ton of crap in it. And I can't zip it.

How funny, I have a purse that size too. My kids are older than yours, but the same rule applies. I get to carry all their stuff; wallets, lipstick, cards, money, tickets. God forbid they can't find it, then it would be my fault. LOL

I have that exact book and purple wind up flapping dragon in my bag. How funny is that?

Oh man. I had to buy a tiny tiny purse to stop doing that, because my husband would complain every time I told him to get something in my purse. (I called mine the Mary Poppins Bag because you could find EVERYTHING in it.) Now- it's my backseat. We cant escape this baggage!

An entire BANANA STAND! Whoa, you're not called SuperMom for nothing... I'm lucky if there are some stray cheerios on the floor of the minivan for snack emergencies.

I almost made a very similar blog post about my ginourmous purse with way too much stuff in it.

It's scary isn't it?

I go to coffee with the girls and realize that I have a diaper, a tub of Gerber pasta, and a half eaten crayon.

Im like Diana. I got rid of my big purse so I didnt have a place for everyone else's stuff!

Oh supermom, you gotta fix that nickelback video. It so creeped me out when I opened this because I couldnt see the video but I got all this creepy noise! I thought I was getting extraterrestrial messages!
