A few years ago when DS was about 6 mons I was wearing him in my wrap and was on an outing with my at the time 11 year old niece and her friend when i overheard this conversation.
"Oh man babywearing is so cool"
"yeah, I'm never going to buy a stroller when I have a baby"
"I'm going to use a ring sling what kind of carrier are you going to use?"
"Well I will probably want a wrap and then a ring sling too but I think a pouch would be good"

DH told me the other day one of his favorite things is when little kids comment on how cute DD is. I had to aggree.
I remember once on the subway 4 young kids were fawning over DD, and a boy (maybe 8) kept whispering to his mother, "look at her hair. I like how it does this." and just beaming back at DD.
My heart was melting. I was like, 'you are adorable.'
Not about baby-wearing, just a hilarious kid moment - we decided to hand out beanie babies for Halloween (don't get many kids here). One little Superman (maybe 8 or 9?) came to the door and DH held out the bowl with the beanies in it to him. The kid goes, 'are you SERIOUS????' in this loud, incredulous voice, then goes, 'man, that's just awesome, bump it, bump it' and throws out his fist to bump with DH - who was laughing so hard he almost dropped the bowl. Kids are a hoot!
Love the 'it'll be sick' part. too cute
The 'bump it bump it' it hilarious too!
Maybe we should have a funny things kids say and do thread?
Me, DS, and DD Grateful to the baby I lost for sticking around long enough to teach me what I needed to know so badly We love our forest valley home, our goats and chickens, and wild harvested food-medicine

I recently took DD to the toy library, and a whole bunch of teenage girls were sitting outside eating lunch. Being pathetic and wimpy I'm kind of nervous of teenage girls, so I prepared to run the gauntlet while they laughed at my hair and criticised my clothes.
Only they didn't. Instead there was a loud chorus of "Awwwww, she's so cute!" as they all gushed over DD pushing her tiny pram back to the toy library. One girl even offered her a lolly. It was unexpected, and sweet.
