Kids are embarrassing

At the mall yesterday we met a woman wearing her baby facing outwards in a narrow-base Baby Bjorn carrier. Rahul commented on this (in his lucid, bell-like tones, unfortunately). He said, "That baby is literally hanging in that carrier."

He's right, of course. It's also worth noting that the baby was and will be fine, though the carrier might end up a little painful for the mother's back as the baby gets bigger. It's just that I've never discussed the ergonomics of baby carriers with him, and was surprised he even noticed the difference!

Being him, he also had to back this up by informing the startled woman that I 'make' baby carriers and know all about this. I'm not saying he was wrong but... I couldn't get out of there fast enough.

Kids are embarrassing.
