Put A Leash On Your Kid!

If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s parents who have no control over their children.  Their kids are always underfoot and it drives me insane.  You want to yell at the kids “Where the hell are your parents?!?”.  I mean, is no one watching them??

Probably because karma is a bitch has a sense of humor, this pretty much describes my kid these days.

I was thinking about taking Vista to the zoo today, but the last time we went it was…difficult. She’s starting to want to walk around more and not be in the stroller, which is fine. But the problem is, she runs off constantly. And she HATES holding my hand while walking (entirely too much physical contact for her). So taking her to the zoo myself means I can’t bring the stroller (ever tried to run after a toddler while controlling a stroller in a busy place? Doesn’t work so well, trust me. And you get a lot of pissed off people when you almost run over their kids who are also running amok), which means carrying a very heavy 30 lb kid when she gets tired and doesn’t want to walk anymore.

I’ve seen parents with these kid harnesses (aka leashes for your children). I think it might be a good idea, but I just hate the fact that it screams “I can’t control my 2 year old”. Even if that is true. I don’t really need to broadcast that to the world. And I have a big mouth. So if some opinionated person happened to say something, I might just end up telling them where to go and the shortest way to get there. Anyway, I guess what I’m asking is this: Are there other options? Something I’m missing? Things that have worked for your kids?

So there’s the leashing issue. Out in the open. Now to find out if they sell muzzles for kids too. Definitely going to need one of those when she’s a teenager
