I scored on 40lbs of strawberries for free that were about to turn. I decided to take them and make as many bags of frozen berries as I could. To do that, I had to tame the wild destructobaby. So armed with my Ergo and strawberries as my bait, I set out to get my job finished before he wanted freedom. My teen took these pictures and I thought they were quite charming… and also, very much what I look like in real life.
My days are spent wearing my boy so I can get jobs done. Simple jobs that used to seem to take care of themselves are all very complicated with a young toddler. I am lucky. He loves to be in the Ergo and will happily sit there for hours each day as long as I am moving. Tasks that require stillness (like cutting the tops and spots out of strawberries) are less entertaining and therefore have way less staying power (pun totally intended). Nonetheless, I got the job done and now have 7 gallon zip locks of yummy strawberries for winter meals.
How do you get things done with toddlers in tow?
