31st July we braved the supermarket with two babies and no pushchair. What a dumb freaking idea that was.
Toddler wears reins. I know, terrible parent. My bro always had reins and I am terrified she will run off without them, so I put her reins on. I have never before been ashamed of using them…but that Sunday I was.
She pulled, threw herself on the floor, required verbal admonishment. I felt like I was training a dog or small pony, not a small child. So now I have a moral dilemma (and I’m worried about having marked her) do we continue to use the reins or let her loose? I cannot stand the thought of her running into the path of an on coming car, but I don’t know how she is ever going to learn to walk nicely otherwise.
