Wait, you're a bad mom for just thinking it? Wonder what people think of me, because I would have DONE it.

But, I also like to abuse my kids. So, whatever.

I am sure it is quite a sight... big old fat preggo lady, two kids attached to her butt, trying to pull her pants down, as she struggles to hold them up while simultaneously holding a 20 mo old..... Ah, I'm great entertainment, ya'll.
This is so me right now. I am regretting the "back pocket" idea with these overly stretchy mat jeans, lol.

Re: Toddlers on a leash

never had one till #4. a leash is around the neck. this is on a backpack and you are not dragging them you are guiding them around. my daughter tripped while i was holding her hand and popped an elbow out of joint. thats why i got this

I have used a harness as needed with my kids, my baby is learning to walk and if we need it for her, she will use the monkey back pack next, I have no issues with them.

I don't like them and wouldn't use one. I also hate posts like these that ask for opinions and flame people for giving them.

There's sharing an opinion ("I love cantaloupes, I think they're the tastiest fruit ever.") and there's being rude about it ("I think grapefruits are nasty, and if you eat them you're as gross as the kid who ate his boogers and you might as well just go eat worms.") It's about the wording and execution.

Re: Toddlers on a leash

Oh, you gals are great fun! Seriously. I am enjoying myself. Lighten up!

And here are some thoughts I had...... these are probably out of order...

I have so many visuals.... and it's so funny.... but I can't come up with ANYTHING tongue-in-cheek to say on this one.... It kind of reminds me of the kid in the movie "BABIES" who was tethered to the inside of his hut and ate toilet paper.... ahahahaha....

You CANNOT be serious?! My kids would seriously LOVE to be dragged around on a leash if we used one on them. LOL It would be great fun. And I am actually not totally kidding. my kids already drag each other on the floor by their arms through the house.... if they had a nifty leash to use, it would be so much easier for them, and I wouldn't have to worry so much about dislocated shoulders....

The phrase "mom on a rope" does NOT make me imagine a mom holding a kid leash. .... it makes me think of how I feel somedays .... wait, does this "rope" have a noose on one end??

And, I am totally kidding.
