It will be interesting to hear back how it ended up working in practice. I would also like to hear back if there were any issues with it snagging on pokey branches/weeds/brush etc...esp. when pitching it in the wind.

I hear you... I also have a 9mo daughter (my goodness is she an absolute angel), and a 2yr old boy, another 4yr old boy, a 7yr old daughter, oh- and two more boys, 9 and 11... :D Yeah, I gave up any notion of having time to myself a long while ago. When I want to work on a project, it's usually done a few minutes at a time in between fights, feedings, diapers, or after they are in bed. Sleep is for the weak!! j/k...
