Thursday Thoughts

    i remember seeing kids on their leashes when i was younger. is it considered abuse to do it these days?

    and i am admiring jacob and his extra 30 pounds…sigh…

    if that's child abuse, then we must be abusive πŸ™‚

    we bought a backpack with a 'leash' for this trip – but only used it once at the airport. it helped ENORMOUSLY because jorgen just wanted to run around after being on a plane for 20 hours but we had to get all of our bags, go through customs and figure out where in the world we were….so i think they are immensely helpful in certain situations. it wasn't hard on jorgen either – and not like we were tugging him around and making him feel like our pet. it just helped him have a little freedom and we didn't have to worry he was running off somewhere. those are my long winded thoughts πŸ™‚

    remember the wrist leashes we had when we first moved to California? We had two – one for Kenzie and one for Brenley (though it was frequently removed from one of the girls and placed on Jase so that we could keep track of him – he always wanted to run off and see something ever so much more interesting than what we were doing. We didn't use them much – but they were wonderful at Disneyland.

    though i do remember Jase using it as a toy sometimes with one of his little sisters pretending to be a puppy.

    We do it for travel also. Airports mostly.

    yah, i finally bought one… the bear/backpack kind you find at target. little emberD just can't stay in sight. and the kids use it in "pretend you're a dog" play.
    my vote… leashes are great. especially when you are one parent trying to keep track of all 4 of your energetic kids running errands multiple days of the week.
