            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!
