Aaaaahhh yeah ... I've been having myself a little two-hand fun.
Is it just me or does that sound kind of racy?! Is my mind in the gutter?! Is yours?!
Well, this isn't nearly as obscene as it sounds ...
but it sure is exciting to me ...
But before I share with you exactly what the heck I am talking about ... allow me to tell you the back story.
There's this hilarious chica named Laryl ... she's one of my dearest friends from college ... and did I mention that she is so ridiculously funny?! I can't be in a room (or on the phone, for that matter) with her for more than a minute or two without absolutely cracking up. She's my kind of funny, and I love her for it.
Well, Laryl is as practical as she is funny ... which makes a great combination for some serious laughs ...
at with her. Because here's the thing, I think we all wish we could pull off practical as well as she does ... especially in this particular case. You see, Laryl wears rocks a fanny (pack). She dropped the pack and refers to it as just her "fanny." I am cracking up just thinking about the mannerisms / dance moves she uses when speaking of her "fanny." Wish I had video ... because I am fairly certain it's one of those "you had to be there" kind of things.
Anyway, as a result of rocking the "fanny," Laryl is the one in our group who always has whatever we happen to need, and she has it close at hand. She's a freakin' boy scout in disguise, I tell ya. Do you have one of those friends? I always wish I could be that person. The one who carries everything we may need and comes to the rescue when we need it. But that's just not me ... especially if it means carrying a backpack or fanny pack ... just not going to happen. I just can't pull off "that look," and we all know what you carry is a fashion statement, right?
Well, as Laryl so eloquently points out, with a fanny pack you've always got two hands free ... for, what else, but some Two-Hand Fun! And really, two hands are always more fun!
After three days of wearing Charlotte in the Ergo Carrier, I emphatically agree. And after more than a month of figuring out how to do everything one-handed (filling my water bottle, brushing my teeth, making a bottle, putting cream cheese on a bagel, replying to emails, writing thank you cards, even going to the bathroom) because CJV was too tiny to be in the carrier ... boy, did I need some Two-Hand Fun!
Let the good times roll 'cause I've got 1, 2 hands free!
Clearly, the Ergo is my Fanny, and I am loving life!
Oh, and I think Charlotte looks so darn cute when I look down on her ... all snuggled up in there ...
P.S. Minimum weight for the Ergo with Infant Insert is 6 pounds ... you know what that means, right!? My little peanut is getting chunky :) CJV weighed in at 6 pounds 7.5 ounces this morning ... woo hoo!
P.P.S. That little hood-deal-io on the Ergo ... is absolutely genius! Most often I refer to it as the "crumb-catcher" ... many meals have been eaten with the little one strapped in. At dinnertime I do one heck of a Rain Man impersonation to keep her content while we eat ... rock, take a bite, rock, ... but her cute head always manages to be free of crumbs :)
P.P.P.S. Can't thank my friend SC enough for loaning me her Ergo ... these things may be fabulous but they aren't cheap!
