Well, okay. It's kind of a leash.
Actually, I think the term is HARNESS? A leash goes around the neck.
This clearly is a harness.
And see, they even try to make it cute by putting a monkey on it...A MONKEY BACKPACK.
How can there be anything sinister about a monkey backpack?
We were at the zoo today for B's birthday, and I was a few paces behind my guys. I overheard these two older women 'discussing' my child being harnessed.
Let's say they found it a bit inhumane.
Well, LADIES, what's more inhumane - keeping close tabs on your child or letting them run off like a shot through the crowd? Hmmmm? What's that? OH YEAH. That's what I thought.
I do not have one of those children who clings or stays close to mommy and daddy. I have a very willful, high spirited and independent child. Did I mention fast? And one day, those traits will serve him well.
But for now, he's wearing the harness. The cute MONKEY BACKPACK harness. Cute and safe. I like it.
