    Ha! So, when can we expect a picture of the child harness fashioned from key straps? ;-)

    You just had to ask if it had been done. . .


    Zuri reports that it's actually quite comfortable


    and despite the fact that I would NEVER actually tie my children to me, unless they were in a sling, the multi color (wasabi, cayenne, plum, black) and adjustable strap length (SE strap) made for a rather convenient and light weight tether to my MCB




    Janine, some of the things that you type have me rolling for hours. After I picked myself up off of the floor, I knew I had to at least try it!

    For those who would duplicate, I cannot vouch for the safety, security, or wisdom of trying to reproduce this stunt. I did it just for giggles

    ROFL! Zuri is such a good sport. You could just pick her up by the 5-point star in the back and clip her to a bag! Or trade out an Absolute strap on the lower part for a springy bungee ride. ;-) Great for keeping track of swift toddlers. My elder son is taller than I am now, but I remember when he was a little Houdini on wheels.

    Zuri is indeed a good sport and as beautiful and gentle as her gorgeous Mom.

    Thank You for sharing Dorayme, just precious.

    Great harness! I have actually tied my child to me, though he was a bit of a mommy's boy so it probably wasn't entirely necessary, and I have to say that is a very creative and colorful way to do it!

    Re: original post, I still love my WF, though for some reason I have felt compelled to bring so much junk that I just can't fit into one any more! I'm hoping by the time I go to the UK and Ireland in the spring, I can do it all with an underpacked WF.

    Jenne, I'm insanely jealous of all your travels.
