Those teeth (gumm) marks will be a memory that will last forever! Literally! I sometimes wish I could have another little one, but mommy's mind would implode and that's not good for husband and DD! LOL!
I've often thought of a 40cm kelly but I just can't get past the one handle and just the way it's made. But, it is for sure the amount of space I need in a bag. I have a 40cm birkin. (Just sold my only other 40cm birkin to a lovely TPF member) so I'm on the prowl!
