I am happy to report that I’ve been toddler wearing more in the past few weeks than I have in nearly a year. There have been a few times in the past week when I’ve had to run errands with a not-fully napped TLE. Rather than wake her up and put her in a shopping cart (which has had disastrous consequences when she wants to sleep), I’ve opted to pop the still-drowsy from her car-nap TLE into a carrier and onto my back. She may wake up and be a bit confused but when she realizes she’s on my back, she relaxes and goes back to sleep.
Good lord, why haven’t I been doing this more?!
I guess TLE is now remembering how nice it is to be worn because she’s now asking to be worn rather than just waiting for me to give her the option. I am absolutely thrilled about this though now I’m debating whether nor not it is time to sell the old Pikkolo to invest in a newer carrier that is better suited for a lanky-legged toddler. Hmmm….
