This past week was a happy mail week for me: I got two packages in the mail. One was quite small: a Sansa Clip mp3 player. I've never had a mp3 player before (or a walkman or any other portable music device) so this is quite fun for me. I chose this one because it was tiny, inexpensive ($35 with free shipping), and had a view screen to select songs. I bought it primarily to listen to my Hypnobabies scripts, but it also picks up FM radio. I love listening to NPR when I go on walks now.
The other package was large and soft: a wine red Mamaponcho. I received some unexpected (but very much appreciated) graduation money from my parents and grandparents, just enough to buy a Mamaponcho, which I have wanted for years and years. It's made of pure wool and can be worn with the baby on the front or back. I am soooo excited to use it!
