I know my 6-year-old should really not need a carrier but I wanted to review this item so I could pass it on to a friend. Let me be really honest for a minute though... even today at the apple orchard I did end up giving my 6-year-old a piggyback ride so I guess this would have been so much handier. He is only 34 pounds... (he has my genes) so it wasn't challenging for me to carry him. The only thing that was strange was I'm short and he has some length so we look a little silly in the pictures. The Freeloader is an extra tool to help parents get out and do more with their kids! Kids are easily tired so providing a time for them to rest will provide the family with more memory making.
So this particular day we put this on we had a long day in the sun and I wanted to water all the flowers at church. So we opened the box and put it on. It took no assembly and really just a couple buckles and we were off doing the gardening tasks. Titus even held the hose and did some watering. He is 6 so he was able to clearly communicate that the Freeloader is comfortable! He has even asked to use it a couple times for a family walk but I told him he was a big boy and could use the walking.
What I really like about this product is the ability for the child to cuddle up in the back and get rest. It is harder for toddlers to find comfort in carriers but this one Titus said he could fall asleep if we kept going!
So, I have officially given it to a friend who has a newborn and a toddler. I image they will get some great use from it! I will try to post some pictures after my friend uses it for her daughter.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
