    You can't see it in the photo, but the Iberian PCSB is under the stroller. It's filled with diapers and wipes and spare clothes and burp cloths. It makes a fantastic small diaper bag for quick trips, like a walk around the neighborhood.
    I was just looking around at photos of the PCSB (thinking of ordering it as a kind of lightweight camera bag), and what should I come across but this thread of ten months ago. Which made me hope that you'll be posting photos of the twins' big first birthday when it arrives sometime in April (right?) Will you be getting Oscar and Kindle their own TB bags to celebrate?

    You guys are so sweet to compliment my boys! :-) I'll try to keep my baby picture uploads bag-related, but every once in a while I might sneak in something I think is particularly cute.

    Yes! We'll form the Packing Cube Shoulder Bag Appreciation Society. We'll have contests for packing the most stuff in one's PCSB, the weirdest stuff in one's PCSB, most PCSBs in one place, etc. I love all my TB bags but my PCSBs have been the most used so far.

    Can't. Stop. Photographing. Bags. On. Strollers.



    This is the maiden voyage of my brand new Indigo Side Effect. @dorayme sold me on it when she used hers as a handlebar bag! I adore Indigo, it's such a bright and rich blue. Here you see it carrying my phone, a Vera Bradley zip coin purse with my cards and folding money, a Vera Bradley kisslock with my coins, a small bottle of hand sanitizer, a tube of lip balm, and my iPod and headphones.

    Daddy and I bought a new double stroller for the twins. It fits the car seats and converts so that bigger kids can ride in it. Knowing we'll use it for a few years justified buying new. But I had a niggling thought that single strollers would have a use, too, so we picked two up second-hand for a song, knowing we could sell them again for the same price if they didn't work out. Today was the maiden voyage of the two single strollers as well, and it was fantastic! Everything I hoped it would be and more. The singles are a lot more nimble than the double. We raced 'em (Daddy won, he has longer legs).

    The spot where this photo was taken is on the corner next to where he and I work. We each pushed a kid to that corner. I'm still out on maternity leave so I turned around and pushed my baby home, but he pushed his in to work with him. That's one of the great things about living just a mile from one's place of employment - walking when the weather is nice.

    So today is a big day of firsts: first trip with the Side Effect, first trip with both single strollers, first time the kids have been separated. And let me tell you, as great as the Side Effect is, it's nothing compared to only having to mind one baby. I feel like I can do anything! I'm invincible! ;-)

    Awwww, Oscar is such a cutie! And I never thought of using the PCSB as a stroller bag, but what a great idea!!! Using key straps to attach bags to fixed objects opens so many possibilities. I bet they could also make great walker and motorized scooter bags attached similarly!

    Thanks! I like to think my family will be like the people in Lake Wobegon: the women strong, the men good-looking, and the children above average. :)

    Here's a shot of my little Oscar and the PCSB on the stroller, a la @dorayme's handlebar bag.

    I need to make a little photo album dedicated to the greatness of this little bag. It's awesome!
