Comfort Items

by This is Carrie on June 13, 2009

It’s been a tough week for Baby Brother breaking those new molars in. His blankie and a bowl of Cheerios helps, but it’s only when I help him put on his bike helmet that he’s really content.
Best moment was when the checker at the grocery store told me I was “really smart because you have no idea how many kids fall out of shopping carts”. Yep, that’s totally me – the overprotective parent.

That is hilarious! Sounds like he's a safety kid!

We just like to think he's really taken to this biking family he's been born into.

This reminds me of when I taught preschool. I had a kiddo who insisted on wearing his new life jacket to class for a week. People thought his mom made him wear it because our preschool was across the street from the bay. Cute, the things that kids find comfort in.

I actually have a friend whose little girl fell out of a shopping cart the other day at TJs and they spent the whole afternoon in the ER.

Very cute that he likes to wear that helmet. :)

Tanner too! He likes to wear it in the car…totally makes him happy. I took him to Trader Joes last month in fins and goggles. Whatever works.
