We were at a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese today for a child in dd's preschool class. I had Ben in the Maya wrap and dh carried Gus in the Didymos. The Didymos was a big extravagance for us when we bought it. A friend picked it up in Switzerland for much less than you can buy them in the states, but it was still alot of $$. DH especially loves it. Additional background is that dd's preschool is full of pretty well-off families, so dh stands out in the carpool line in our dented '93 civic. So, dh was chatting with one of the moms at this party when she leans in and says sympathetically, "You know we have a Baby Bjorn if you guys would like to borrow it." DH just smiled and assured her that we, in fact, have a Bjorn, but that he prefers the wrap. Now I would have been tempted to brag about the craftsmanship and beautiful material, but dh rightly judged that this would all be lost on this well-meaning, but clueless woman who clearly thought that he had just wrapped himself in a tablecloth out of necessity (not that there would be anything wrong with that!). Oh well, at least we know our Didymos rocks!
