Walking Commercial


... for Ergo, that is. Because this is how we spend most of our day. And when people say things like, "Do you hold her all the time?". They really sort of mean it in a you're-spoiling-your-child-and-you-don't-know-what-you're-doing kind of way. But that's ok. I don't mind. Because I do know exactly what I'm doing. I'm making my bed. And I'm the one who will lay down in it (I think, it's looking that way, anyway). You see, parent a RADling, and you'll be all about attachment and bonding, too. I promise. Especially for a little one who is quite at risk for the same thing.

But the truth is, even if she wasn't, I'd be doing the same thing! ;)

Oh, and, by the way... the kitchen and cooking were photoshopped in. Because I would never wear a baby on the front and cook at the same time. What mother would do that? So unsafe!!!!!! Maybe I should have done a "Not Me Monday". ;) And, the picture was taken by a munchkin, hence the cut-off head. At least you can see my smile!

Ergos are back-savers. I must admit that I choked at the price before our first adoption trip. By day three in China, my back was screaming at me. As to the photo-shopped kitchen... you have mad skillz. It looks SO real.

I love it. I carried mine in a sling and then a hip hammock. Now they are too big for all of that. Hold them as long as you can..they grow up too quick! There's no such thing as holding them too much in my book!

I got an error while leaving a freakishly brilliant comment. I have since forgotten. Good to see you blogging again.
