No stroller. No carrier. Just kids

Uploaded: Dec 9, 2015
It was a very short walk. From our home to our car. But it is the first time I've walked hand-in-hand with both of my kids walking next to me. No stroller. No carrier. Just a mom walking her two kids to her car.

This milestone caught me off guard. And reminded me that my days of carrying kids is limited. One day they won't ask me to carry them anymore. And although I've perfected the art of carrying two kids at once, I am very happy to be ever so gradually moving on to the next stage- holding two kids' hands at the same time.
