    Thanks for making me laugh this morning!

    I remember during maternity leave wearing my Charlotte in a front carrier and walking around in circles on the driveway desperately singing to her in the hopes that she would fall asleep. Then a neighbor walked by and as he got closer said “Wait. What do you have in there?“ And I told him it was a baby and he said “OH. I thought it was a dog!“

    I remember thinking “What kind of weirdo wears a dog on her chest?“

    Now I know. ;)

    Wear it with pride, girl, and tell your dad to be proud of your nurturing instincts.  They are awesome!

    As long as you just don’t start nursing said puppy while in the sling, because THAT would be wierd. ;)

    HAH!! I love it!

    I have a confessions to make. I am totally jealous that you have a puppy to put in your sling. Thats how baby crazy I am.  I have no reason to wear mine. My 18 month old runs the other way yelling “ NO NOOOOO NOOOOoooOOOOO “when I take out any carrier.

    Aww, so sweet! When my moby arrived I was *sorely* tempted to try it out on my dog. The only thing that stopped me was the bump. Oh, and my husband :) Wear that puppy with pride & I’m sending baby vibes your way!

    I went on a walk with our new puppy when we got her, and she absolutely refused to budge. She was the laziest little baby in the entire world. I zipped her up into my jacket with her head sticking out of the top. Woulda been more convenient to have a sling! ;)

    So, I too have a confession to make. I got a beautiful sling the other day on clearance in a store. I do not have a baby yet, I’m not even pregnant yet. The sling was so beautiful and inexpensive that I bought it anyway. Your puppy might not mind being carried around but my cat does. He will only tolerate a few minutes before he sneaks out. He is very gentle though so that helps. Cuddle that puppy, I would have given anything to be able to cuddle my Boxer Bella when she was little. 60 lbs is too big now so the cat will have to do till I get a baby to put in there.

    walking the dog and carrying the baby?!

    Dandy - Errr…carrying the dog and walking the toddler!  She doesn’t want to be carried as often anymore, now that she’s discovered that those cool legs of hers can run lol.

    ALSO EVERYBODY - I just realized that there’s a typo on my photograph.  Oops!

    I don’t have a dog but we’ve reached a stage where my daughter likes to put her dolls in the sling.  Usually she carries them but sometimes she makes me.  Clearly I am an indulgent mama because I usually oblige.

    Mary - Charlotte likes to carry her stuffed monkey in carriers too.  I let it happen.  It’s the cutest thing in the world!

    She’s also starting to hold her monkey up to her chest, pretending to nurse it, like I nurse her.  I also let that happen.  It’s kind of nice to see that what she sees me do is carry her around, nurse her, and give her lots of kisses.  It makes me feel like I must be doing at least that right!

    You are doing it all right from this perspective, Sarah. And you know what, your dad just might call you Pupy wearing…. one never knows what dads will say about their beloved daughters.
