Stuff: How to control it all
Mom = Sherpa
Why is it that when you bring home a teeny tiny baby you realize that the amount of STUFF you must now carry around far exceeds the weight and size of baby?
Tiny, itty bitty 7 pound baby
Huge, ginormous, 57 pound diaper bag
This improves only slightly as baby ages. For years you have food, snacks, diapers, changes of clothes for them and you, wipes, toys, antibacterial cream, blanket, stroller, carrier, sling for wearing kiddo when they start to scream from sitting in the stroller…and so on.
You feel like you have lost 10 pounds when baby is potty trained because you are free from diapers, diaper cream, wipes (no, you are never really free from those now, are you?), disposable cover for changing areas, and bags to enclose offending diapers.
But even when kiddo is up, mobile, potty trained and pretty independent, mom is still the queen of sherpas.
When you become a mom you need to grow extra arms!
Since that is not a possibility, consider the Demi Hugger. What a great invention! Of course invented by a mom sherpa, the Demi Hugger helps you keep up with those loose items like coats (It is a scientific fact that only moms can carry coats, but I’m sure you already knew that. 😉
Wrap this soft, cloth horizontally or vertically around whatever your are schlepping and off you go!
