The Front Pack

Monday, November 11, 2013

Well over 30 years ago, I received this lovely front pack from my mother for my first son. It is a Snugli, well made and something that babies have loved to be in because of the closeness to Mom, and the feeling of security that it brings. I used the pack for both of my sons, and also for all the babies who would come to my day care. For many years, I ran a day care by day, and attended college at night. The day came when I closed the day care, and I stored the front pack in the attic for this special day.
Today I will spend the day with my grand baby Lina while my DS and my DIL take exams at med school. This is going to be an exciting day!

  Oh-- What a precious picture!
Your son, daughter-in-law, and sweet Lina--are so fortunate to have YOU!
(I also cared for children in day care. It was labor, but a labor of love.)

    Snugglies are great!
But I've a friend in Peru from the mountain region who'd bind her babies on in a traditional way, with the colorful hand-woven fabric, arranged just so.

    I just found out that DIL has her regular babysitter watching Lina. I will still have a great day helping out where I can!
Things might not be my perfect plan, but I can roll with it!
