Having the kids around has been useful in some ways, though:
Babywearing a pre-schooler isn't something I particularly enjoy doing (my poor back!) but any time I find it difficult to put my thoughts into words, I just grab a carrier and wear Afraz. I hardly ever wear him these days, but his face lights up whenever I ask him if he'd like to get in a carrier, and he goes absolutely limp and relaxed once he's in it (see the picture on the left). So, parents who wonder if their kids ever "grow out of it" and get sick of being worn, I can tell you: most kids will never grow out of wanting to be close and cuddly with their mamas (that's me receiving lots of grateful kisses on the right).
There are a few exciting things I'll blog about next week with regards to the book - and you will have a chance to be actively involved! So watch this space and don't forget to subscribe for updates. And why don't you go and "Like" Glam Mama on FB while you're at it, so you won't miss a thing ;)
