I take my kids everywhere with me. I strap Lore in the Baby Bjorn and now that Sofie is older, she walks alongside me, usually holding my hand. Several friends and even pure strangers have remarked lately that they are amazed that I go out so often and to so many places with both my girls. I hear things like, “Don’t you have your hands full?” or “How do you manage?” or “I can’t believe that you’d go [insert location] with your kids!“
We don’t see having a 3 1/2 year-old and a 3 month-old as a hinderance. We take them shopping, to museums, hiking, to restaurants, international traveling….actually, we take them everywhere. Not once have I declined going somewhere just because it would be an inconvenience taking my kids. I refuse to be one of those people who stay home because going with children would be too difficult.
How about you? What is your opinion on taking your kids places? Are there places that are off limits to kids…should people only take their kids to family-friendly places?
