We love hanging out with these guys, and we picked up a few tips along the way:
We have the heaviest carseat known to man, and upon complaining about it to our friends at a play date and finding out we also share the same mammoth of a seat, they told us about this carrying trick that will change your lives!
I haven't quite perfected it, but luckily I've got a handsome model.
Slip your arm in and grab the pivot point for the handle and there you have it. It takes serious weight off of your arms.
And on top of that, they showed us this pool noodle "floatie" trick:
Put away the puddle jumpers and arm floaties. Simply tie a noodle tightly under your kiddo's armpits and watch him maneuver through the water much more seamlessly. This frees up their arms and gives them a bit more control in the water.
Thanks Team F for being family here with us in TX and teaching us new tricks along the journey!
