Carried Away

Children and bags seem to go hand in hand.  They start out needing diaper bags and progress from there.

Fact - Most junior high students need various bags.  Josh is not an exception to this rule.

Fact - Most junior high students carry their own bags without problems.  Josh is an exception to this rule.  Provided the bag fits well on his wheelchair and doesn't slide around so that it gets caught in the wheels, Fhe can "carry" his own bags.  The problem comes when more than one bag is needed and/or when the bag slips around.

With Joshy going to after school care twice a week bags were becoming a problem so the search for something new started.  Diaper bags actually fit his needs better, but the baby motif just doesn't cut it for a junior high boy.  Sports bags are good, but they tend to slip slide around and get caught in wheels.


I stumbled across the Skip Hop diaper bag.  It is actually a sturdy bag that doesn't shout BABY. A.N.D it has a special strap that hooks on to strollers, or wheelchairs for that matter.  We decided to give it a try.  

Ready for school! 

And off we go. With either free handles or a place for another backpack to hang on days a second bag is needed!  

Happy Mama!!
