Wouldn't it be great if every mom had a bag like Mary Poppins - bottomless? From pacis for the wee ones to tennis balls for the toddlers (not to mention Ziplocks full of snacks for the whole brood), we're all packing more than our keys and cells. Tausif Churyk, a mother of four in Fairfield, admits to once finding a tree branch in her handbag while digging through. To help you navigate your kid-filled summer with ease, organization, (and dare we say it) style, we present the best new bags for busy moms.
