I finally became THAT mom. You know...the mom who walks her kid around on a leash. I remember seeing toddlers on leashes when I was younger and I thought it was so silly. "They aren't a dog," I would say to myself, "I would never do that." Well, back then I didn't know I would one day have a very independent child who loves to walk and run around. I was apparently pretty judgmental of parents when I had no idea what it was like to be one. Now that I have a toddler, I decided that the leash backpack was the best way to keep her happy and safe while out and about.
We got it in the mail yesterday. I put the backpack portion on Pearl so she could get used to it while just playing around the house. She decided that since she basically had a pillow on her back, it was time to have some fun. I hope the falling over gets old for her so we can actually walk with it on, but watching her yesterday was pretty hilarious.
