Wow!  And you wonder why Moms have empty strollers in front of them as they carry or sling their baby?  Well, it's to push that 45 pound diaper bag around.  OH!  Plus I normally put a bottle of water in each end pocket, but not right now.   And my bag is officially cleaned out now with only the above items.  You should see it when it's full.  I love my diaper bag.  :)  It was a $70 one with a leather bottom that I scored at 2nd hand shop, brand new with tags for less than 20!   I LOVE IT and have gotten so many complements on the crazy pattern on it!
