owiekitIn the mind of Emily the child, my mom knew all things and was the keeper of all things. I had no worries, because my mom was the responsible adult. She generally had everything I needed when I needed it. The granola bar when I was hungry, the sunscreen on a sunny day, the band-aid when I scraped my knee. Much could also be written on my grandmother, who carries a large purse filled with everything a human could possibly desire in any situation. I am convinced that my grandmother could bug out for a week in ease with only the contents of her purse. Now that I have a baby of my own, I’ve come to the realization that I must be the responsible adult who I looked up to as a child. It’s a daunting thought. However, I have my first aid supplies covered, thanks to this adorable little kit.

There is really nothing like a kindhearted purple alien to cheer you when you have an ailment. The kit itself is part of the therapy. But inside, it gets even better. This latex free kit boasts 15 bandages, 10 junior bandages, 4 triple antibiotic ointment packets, 4 antiseptic towelettes, 3 burn gel packets, 3 gauze pads, 1 adhesive tape roll, 1 sting relief wipe, and 8 stickers. For us Amazon shoppers, it’s available hereopenkit The kit is small and lightweight which makes it easier to cart around without obtaining a bag the size of my (fabulous!) grandma’s purse. Also, I have a masters degree in nursing, so it seems embarrassing to be caught out-and-about without so much as a band-aid. I think I’ll be carrying it in my diaper bag from now on!

What are your top MUST HAVE items for your purse/diaper bag?
