  1. HA! HA! HA! HA! I just spat out my sip of water from laughing. That’s hilarious.

    • Olivia – I hope your “spat” didn’t get on your computer. You have a bee post to write… ;)

  2. LOL! Pure awesome hilarity. In one of those awwwwww poor lil’ dude kind of ways.

    • Mark – Ya. I felt like a totally parental failure. Not that it stopped me from laughing and taking a picture. I wondered why people were looking at me funny on the trail that day…

      • You know, common courtesy is just plain ol’ disappearing in today’s world. No one will tell you when you have spinach stuck in your teeth, and they won’t warn you if you’re about to drop your child out of a backpack.

  3. We have the Kelty version, same idea with the straps. One day when C was about 6 months old we hiked all the way out from a cliff in TN (including some 4th class scrambling) only to realize that those upper straps had been undone the whole time. Of course I thought to check it when we got to the flat part at the end b/c things felt a little “funny” C’s head position was similar to your little one’s…As guilty as I felt, its good to know that they’re not as delicate as you might think!

    • Erica – Really!?! Hahaaa! I actually feel so much better knowing I’m not the only one! Ya, it’s a good thing kids are flexible. Well, I suppose I use the term “flexible” loosely… ;)

    Sigh….this kind of reminds me of the day my dad came home after a motorcycle ride with my brother (don’t worry, he was a little older). Regardless, the bike was lulling him to sleep and a driver flagged by dad down to point it out to him. Luckily it was a full dresser, so he was anchored back there pretty well. But alas, my crafty dad made certain of it by stopping and tying him securely to the bike for the remainder of the ride. lol

    • Lauren – Hahahaa. Please tell me you have a picture of that!!

  5. LOL! Those little ones are made of rubber, aren’t they! I had an older kid carrier when my oldest was carry-able, and he could squirm out of the safety harness if he wanted to. That’s such a funny picture, though, he must have been really zonked!

    • HIker Mama – I know! Because he looks like his neck should be broken!

    Oh. My. Wow. Brilliance.

    • Kristen – I know. I’m really starting to wonder if I should have put this up there…

    Funny… I didn’t even notice poor Ari the first time I looked at the photo. :)
