Granted, um, she probably doesn’t read my blog. Still.
Today at the mega-store-which-shall-remain-unnamed (it was the closest place to buy printer ink), I saw a mom in the parking lot. She was parked next to me. I had Norah wrapped on my back. She was juggling two small children and leaning into her car to pull out an infant in a carseat carrier.
I commented on her adorable son who was wearing a superhero costume complete with cape. Very snazzy.
She commented on my wrap. Very clever.
I said something stupid like, “Looks like you could use one. Those things are so heavy to lug around.” Why? Why did I feel the need to say that? Why didn’t I go get a shopping cart for her instead? I had been working on babywearing pros all day in preparation for my Babywearing 101 class tonight and it warped my brain or something. I am sorry. I am an idiot.
If you see her, please tell her, ok?
