That kid must be so comfortable. 11-day-old River Russell Deary goes everywhere with Mom in NYC. I kind of wish they made those things in an adult size, so when my mom’s in town she could carry me around like that. Or my friends and I could just take turns carrying each other around. Like instead of having designated drivers we could have designated carriers. It would be like, “Look, Tiffany, I walked last weekend. This weekend you walk and I get to ride in the pouch. No, I don’t care if your boyfriend said he’d put you in his pouch this weekend. You have an obligation to put me in your pouch tonight. Is that clear?”
