And this is how shopping is done…
No kid ever enjoys being dragged into a store to buy groceries or veggies. So how do you turn shopping into a stress free, fun outing? You babywear! No worry of your child running around pulling stuff down from shelves or creating a mess everywhere. No juggling baskets or trolleys while trying to hold your kids hand or running behind him. I can’t count the number of times I have been thankful for this way of carrying my kid.
This is us at the vegetable and fruit store learning names of fruits and identifying colours while I breezed through shopping for the weekend. At the end of the trip neither of us was cranky or tired. We had a fun time bonding, learning and non stop chatter. From saying hello to all the dogs on the way to and from the store, to dodging traffic and the general weekend chaos around us, we did it all! I have cooked, cleaned, shopped, walked and stayed sane.
Not to forget the shopping options that open up when you wear your kid! All the lovely styles and types of carriers are just out there waiting to be brought home and flaunted. Who needs an accessory when you can wear your baby in a stylish way. You tell yourself it is Comfort and fashion combined into one. Except that after a point it becomes a bit heavy on your pocket and that is when you resort to a DIY and here we are doing exactly that!
We love babywearing enough to try and do fun projects related to it. Here is the new fabric that just arrived to be converted into a wrap! That is my weekend project and for all those who are keen to know, I will share pictures of the ready product soon 🙂
Till then, have a great weekend!
