MotherFumbler: Diaper bags

Vicki Murphy has advice on what ought to go into any mom's diaper bag 1:31

In case you're wondering why we celebrate mothers this weekend, here are some thoughts to bear in mind. Perhaps you think it's too sentimental and not really worth the price of a bouquet of dried-out supermarket flowers.

Think again. After all, who do do you turn to if you're hungry, thirsty, have a headache, need a tissue, want lip balm …or a socket wrench … the lady with the diaper bag, that's who! 

In her latest irreverent commentary on parenting, MotherFumbler Vicki Murphy pulls out the things she'll always pack away ... or at least the things a mom would definitely appreciate.
