Yes. I had strollers. But I also let them WALK. You know, exercise. Growing strong bodies and all that?

Oh, my. I remember when I was young and idealistic and thought I knew everything there was about raising children. Yes, MY kids were going to be different! I wasn't going to be THAT mother.

Boy was I quickly disillusioned.

By the way I kept track of them all. I knew one was in the stroller. One was standing quietly by my side and one was running off because... well, just because.

I took MissFR to Disneyland when she was 7 months old. I had her in a pouch. You know, like a kangaroo. It was great, she had a marvelous time. Plus she got to experience some of her heritage, being part Aussie and all.

LMAO there is nothing wrong with using a sling to old your child. They are made for CHILDREN and not dogs.

I can just imagine the person who created the child leash out walking their dog and then looked at lil billy and said hmmmmm.

Well....bless your heart, I hope it all works out the way you figure it will.


ummmm no we had custody of my step son. Actually we still do but hes spending the summer with his mom. So no he doesnt visit from time to time he LIVES with me.

And like I said I have taken toddlers out to public areas with big crowds without leashing them. Thats the topic at hand and I have experianced it.

Well gosh, thanks, I'm glad you see nothing wrong with a sling, but I wasn't looking for your approval.

Yeah, we should take things back to the days before child leashes, when you either left the child at home with the nanny or sent them off to the coal mine as soon they were able to toddle.

And they should just not allow kids into Disneyland period. They cause such a disruption. What are they thinking?

So...your coworker finds leashes offensive but allowing her daughter to make fun of others is ok? That is some gooooood parenting right there.
