I’m a sucker for anything black and quilted, and these super cool matching backpacks by MZ Wallace are a chic way for Mommy and her Mini-Me to carry their essentials. The Metro Backpack is what I grab when I need to be hands-free while wheeling our “boxcycle” cargo bike full of kids and animals around Venice, which is often!
Jade stuffs all kinds of things into her matching mini pack, including our poor little chihuahua. But when we go out to eat, I like to encourage my little ones to participate in packing their own well stocked kit of colored pencils, notebooks, playing cards, and a book or two. It’s great for them to start taking care of themselves like this and an easy way to steer away from the iPad so we can focus on creative activities at the restaurant instead.
