    Thanks! This bag can hold a lot! Today, I left out the umbrella and added in my new ASUS EEE 900 netbook.

    I clip the Guardian light to one of the rings inside and just flip it out when I'm walking at night so people can see me. I have a white Guardian coming in my next order. Yay!

    Contents for a 4 hour flight with my 18 month old

    I posted a picture in the pictures/video section of the stuff I fit in my bag. Here's the list:

    Large Sippy Cup
    One single subject notebook (80 sheets, spiralbound)
    One approx 11 in x 6 in board book
    Two approx 6 in x 6 in board books
    One quart ziploc with three diapers and several papertowels (for wipes)
    One quart ziploc with a change of clothes (for baby, not me)
    One 4 oz container with small toys
    Sandwich baggie with pretzels
    Small box of raisins
    4 oz container of baby food
    Small bottle of hand sanitizer (maybe 1 oz)
    iPhone
    Pen
    Baby Spoon
    Keys
    Tom Bihn Wallet

    I also had a box of crayons and a PB&Honey sandwich in the bag, but they didn't make it into the picture:

    And there are several plastic bags (for diapers or trash), and a few lollipops (bribes) are in the front zippered pocket

    Yea, Medium Cafe Bag!
