Today was babywearing day which is Norah’s big social event of each month. The Clemson group lasted four hours this time! Our spur-of-the-moment topic (great to have two procrastinators as leaders) was “How to Get A Baby on Your Back.” There was much slinging and tossing of tots. We made a new friend. The hit of the Clemson group was Jackson’s tin of wooden pineapples.
The Greenville group topic was “Wearing Your Podaegi” (because we all have a podaegi lying around, right?). Carey showed us different ways to use the podaegi. Kawani brought her boys’ playsilks and Norah brought hers.
The kids ran about with various capes, skirts, togas looking like a blissful band of gypsies. I really didn’t believe Norah would play with the silks. In the astounding way only a child can be, she becomes incredibly creative with the way she uses them: sling, baby, water, campfire, lion mane, hat, dress, hiding place. I’m sold.
Scott and I spent what was left of the evening with our new ritual–watching Heroes on Netflix and eating popcorn (made on the stove with coconut oil and sea salt–mmm mmm good). I cannot believe I’m hooked on a TV series. This is what comes of reading too much nonfiction. I’m hungry for story.
