would love to win one of these. :)   The way I converted my hubby to baby wearing was to forget the stroller at a race I was running while he watched the kiddos. Out of necessity came his love for wearing our son. He kept saying, "This is sooooo much easier (than carrying him in his arms), why haven't i done this before now."
carmenmama - I feel the same way you.. I have my "regular" friends... but sometimes feel like I don't face quite the same parenting issues they do because of difference in parenting styles. Yahoo! has a Wichita Attached Families group. I just requested to join. It looks like it's a small but fairly active group.
I don't know why... but I'm seriously on the verge of a panic attack while reading these responses. My mom let my brother and I play outside in our FRONT yard and also go as far down the street as three houses and this is when we lived in California in a not-so-nice part of the city.

Earth Mama Angel Baby makes an Herbal Mint Lip Balm that is incredible. It works wonders on my lips. I used to use the medicated chap-stick for the last 5 yrs.
