Monkey Pack!

I have been struggling with my outings with Anna lately because she doesn't like to be detached from my hip in public.  So, to avoid being that Mom in the grocery store, I find myself carrying her on one hip, pushing the packed grocery cart with my other arm and using a swift kick with my foot to steer it.  Its still a bit of a spectacle, but hey, at least she's not screaming, right?  Yeah.  But, girlfriend is starting to get some heft to her, and its only so long before I have no choice but to stick her back in the cart/stroller and I am immediately transformed into that Mom.  Sigh...

When we were in St. Louis a few weeks ago Mace kept putting Anna on my back and chasing me around with her.  She thought this was the funniest thing ever and it gave me an idea.  We need one of those monkey packs!  So far we've only taken it on one walk to the park, but the walk ensued without tears, without screaming and even produced a few laughs when she'd try to peek at me from around my shoulders.  I hope we're onto something here!

Monkey pack!
