tethered


When out shopping I tether my child to me. For one she loves it and for two I get some really awesome looks when I go out.  

Once I had a older lady come up to me and tell me that I had a good thing going for me with that tether. I had fond memories of this exact tether/lease because when I was about Bugs age I walked off and got lost... in CANADA. yeah that freaked my parents out. so from then on out my mom tethered me to both her and my little sister so it wouldn't happen again. I'm guessing it didn't. =)

I don't feel bad or even guilty about putting my child on a lease. I know others would think differently and I don't care. I'd rather have my child close to me instead of running around being unattended, I know that isn't  everyone however those parents who can actually keep track of there children and have them listen to them every second they are in stores then good for them I would like that one day. For now I'll just rely on the lease.

I totally love that! Where did you find it. I have been doing a scarf hold with my three year old but I love the bracelet look!

my mom actually bought it in the 80's I don't know where you can find them now.

I think the tether is awesome! Not only is she sticking close by, but it's not as conspicuous as those harness leashes for kids... those remind me of pets on a leash.

Ha! My 2 yo nephew is on a leash when we go out! We have that backpack thing for him. hahahaha! Maybe I'll get him the tether

It is a good idea! Besides, there is nothing wrong with that especially because she loves it. :)
