This Moment | Babywearing Comes to Video Games

Playing along with SouleMama today. In her words: {this moment} A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you're inspired to do the same, leave a link to your 'moment' in the comments for all to find and see.


This is a screen shot from the opening movie of the new video game Dynasty Warriors 7. Ancient Chinese mamas and papas defeat rival kingdoms with babe in tow. Try doing that with a stroller! Ha!

Last chance to enter my two giveaways this week...for a copy of the book Cradle to Cradle and a pair of earrings from A Life Sustained sponsor Natura Metallum.

  11. That video is supposed to show a real event: the protection of the baby Liu Shan by General Zhao Yun. Lady Mi, Liu Shan's mother was injured and could not go on, so General Zhao Yun strapped the baby to himself and fought his way out of the troops to reach Liu Bei, the baby's father and eventual Emperor of the Kingdom of Shu.

    Of course all this happened around the year 210 so baby-wearing, in times of peace and war, is pretty ancient, long practiced even by the time of Zhao Yun.
