Strong

I parked the car and was working on getting the baby in the Ergo carrier. By myself…one handed. There was a flurry of activity all around me, I was shifting left and right trying to get the Ergo on and strapped properly.

It was the hardest thing I have ever done. In my entire life. At certain points in operation “Dumbo drop”, I thought he was in there to stay. Never coming out. Sure, I had just pushed for two hours with no results – maybe that’s my sign that he didn’t want to pack up his Lazy Boy and move out his...
