My son Charlie is 2 1/2 or so, and he weighs about 30 pounds. I carry him long distances when I'm in a hurry, which turns out to be most of the time it seems.

My wife doesn't carry Charlie as much because she can't, but he doesn't seem to mind walking for her. Maybe I'm just conditioning him to be carried by me? I'm wondering if anyone else wrestles with this.

How much do your kids weigh, and do you carry them? Do your kids prefer to be carried by you, but don't mind walking for others?
