I’m going to be trying out babywearing along with Wade for the first time in June.
People who know me are probably thinking, “What? You? Do you feel O.K.?”
See, I’m kind of a skeptic, and I don’t usually ascribe to these sort of “trends.” I said before the only thing going green in my house is last week’s leftovers in the fridge, I’ll never home school because it would probably kill me, and you can read here about my reaction to everyone telling me I had to breastfeed.
Maybe it’s because I’m getting old, and my arms ache from holding Wade all day.
Maybe it’s because Wade is a different baby than David was, and seems to need more holding.
Maybe it’s because I’m almost 100% sure Wade is the last baby of mine I’ll hold close.
Whatever the reason, babywearing suddenly sounds like a great idea.
So when I saw that Hotslings and Miracle Blanket were holding a contest about babywearing, I decided to apply. And to my surprise I was selected as one of 30 moms to spend the month of June Twittering about babywearing and baby swaddling during the Sling and Swaddle Journey.
Come follow me, @mom_25, on Twitter to keep up with my journey that starts next week when my sling arrives. I’ll also be posting photos, videos and updates on MommieDaze.
Listen, this is some shameless self-promotion, I know, but the more followers I have the closer I am to winning. So (begging on knees, hands clasped, looking at you with puppy dog eyes) please, please follow me, and tell your friends too. If you aren’t on Twitter yet now is a good time to get started!
Knowing me and my kids there’s bound to be some drama or comic relief involved so stay tuned!
