Having three daughters ranging in age from thirteen to three keeps me busy and on the go. The winter months are my time to regroup since soccer and cross-country are in the off-season for my girls. With spring and sports season just around the corner, I’m getting my busy mom on the go bag ready. Keeping my bag stocked with everything I could need makes life so much easier. I was recently given this bag from American Shield to try out and love it. The Granite 25 backpack has room for all my goodies, and it’s stylish.

I drive my three-year-old daughter to preschool every morning. I’m sure I’m not the only mom that has the daily struggle of a messy, food covered face or crazy hair while in the drop-off line. Keeping hair ties and baby wipes in my American Shield Backpack is a must. And let’s not forget an extra pair of underwear for her, just in case.
In the fall and spring my older daughters are involved in cross-country and soccer, which means practices, games, and meets. Of course with my husband in the Army, I end up taking all the kids with me to everything most of the time. This is when my bag is essential. Snacks, drinks, toys, wipes, jackets and of course band-aids fill my bag. It’s almost as bad as having a baby, without the diapers!
Being prepared for almost anything makes busy mom life so much easier. If it’s not in my bag, it’s usually in my car.
Here’s what’s in my busy mom on the go bag!
-Baby wipes and antibacterial wipes
-Hair ties ( I keep small hair ties for my preschooler, bigger ones for my older daughters and a few bobby pins for myself, since my hair is short.)
-Extra clothes ( underwear for my preschooler and a hoodie )
-Bag of mom goodies which includes : Burt’s Bees chap-stick, feminine products, hand lotion, hand sanitizer and a few medications.
-Snacks ( I rarely buy prepackaged snacks, I prefer to buy a box of Goldfish crackers and use a zip-lock to take them with me.)
-Small first aid kit ( Band-aids and alcohol wipes)
