let's go for a walk

I never thought I would be the kind of mother who puts her kid on a leash.

Then again, I never thought I'd have a two-year old who likes to run run run and doesn't wait for Mama to catch up.

This wasn't too bad until I also had a newborn to tote around.

So, I made Liam a harness and leash.

Somehow, I feel less conflicted about the whole thing since the harness is really cute.

Meet Mr. Frog
He enjoys piggyback (froggyback...?) rides
Liam likes him, too. Especially since that means he can run run run without me yelling for him to come back.
I made the pattern up as I went along. The frog's arms and legs attach to some strong webbing anchored around and onto his chest under a lily pad, with a buckle closure on the side.

I think he may make my life just that much easier. Thanks, Mr. Frog.


  1. Mr. Frog is def. cute.
    was looking up some Popsicle molds for myself and thought of you when I saw the list of BPA free and the healthy recipes.
