Tonight we took all the girls to Rocktoberfest, our church’s Fall festival. We ate funnel cakes, hot kettle corn and played silly games. Instead of taking a stroller, my husband, Zeb carried Baby Sadie (10 months) in a backpack baby carrier for the entire 3 hours we were there. She loved being able to see everything that was going on around her and never made a peep.
Everyone was exhausted as we headed to the car to go home and I began cooing to Sadie who was still perched on her Daddy’s back wearing her bunny costume.
Me: What a good girl! You are so sweet! You sat in your seat for 3 hours and never fussed! You sweet, sweet baby!
Zeb: Yeah, she sat there for 3 hours…on my back. I’ve been carrying all 20 pounds of her the whole time, I’m exhausted.
Me: Oh, I know you di’unt! I carried all 3 of these KIDS for 9 months a piece, so get you some of that!
Zeb: (silence…crickets chirping….wind blowing)
Me: Mm-hmm… that’s what I thought. You don’t want to play this game with me.
