Why This is the New “Must-Have” Purse for Moms


Why This is the New “Must-Have” Purse for Moms

Karl Lagerfeld debuted this Chanel bag in his Spring 2013 show in Paris today — and, while sites such as Jezebel are deriding it for being, um, slightly ridiculous, I could not disagree more.  In fact, I believe it is the new must-have purse for moms (price tag be damned!) because…

1.  Finally!  A bag big enough to fit all of my kids’ crap.

2.  When my three-year-old runs away from me in a busy parking garage because she thinks it’s funny, as she often does, I can just roll my new purse after her and knock her down like a bowling pin.

3.  Nobody would dare ask me to make cookies for the bake sale while I’m armed with THAT monstrosity.

4.  I can use it to part crowds of rowdy kids at Chuck E. Cheese’s, etc.:  “Excuse me!  Big-ass purse coming through!”

5.  Doubles as the world’s largest teething ring for babies.

6.  I can wield a new threat:  “Don’t make me give you a time-out in Mommy’s purse!”

7.  Well, what else am I going to carry when I wear my see-through Chanel bodysuit to the preschool drop-off?
