I am fascinated by the mom purse. It’s like a magical Mary Poppins bag where the treats never end: Snacks. Stickers. Sunscreen. (This edition of Psst! is brought to you by the letter “S.”)

But sometimes, things that are not like the other, and just don’t belong — and don’t even start with the letter “S” — invade the mom purse. Like a hastily stashed diaper or a packet of wipes. This upsets the balance of the mom purse.

Which is why I love the idea of Diapees & Wipees — a stylish diaper pouch created by an enterprising (and fashionable) Texas mom.

“Like other moms, I don’t always need the whole diaper bag. I was throwing diapers in my handbag and they would get wadded up and scrunched,” says company founder Christie Rein. “One day, I got a new handbag, and I was like, ‘I am not putting this in my purse.’ “
