Let's kick this one off with a little-known fact... I never win anything. Ever. In fact, hell would freeze over before I won any sort of drawing.
Hell froze over this week.
Just for kicks and grins, I entered a drawing for a Petunia Picklebottom baby sling through thebump.com and I nearly fell out of my chair when I got an email from the Bump team telling me that I had won! Once I scraped my jaw off the floor and the shock wore off, I quickly pounded out a response email profusely thanking them and telling them what kind of sling I would like.
It arrived today in some very beautiful packaging and Nathaniel and I gave it a try. The pattern is absolutely adorable and it's very easy to use. My little boy seemed to enjoy being held in it and, best of all, I discovered that it provides hands-free nursing!
I wouldn't have spent the money on this high-end baby product if I hadn't won it (since they retail for about $72), but it sure is fun to have and if you have money to burn, I do recommend it!
