Hello, lovelies! It is a gorgeous day today, and I am relishing the sunshine. Yesterday I actually got IRRITATED at the sun because I can't wear sunglasses and it was too bright. But only for a second! I prefer sunshine to rain any day, 1000%.
So after much searching and reviewing of customer reviews, etc, we have decided on a stroller. It is THE BOB Revolution, with 18" back wheels:
The great news is that it is THE exact stroller for our needs. Lightweight, sturdy, good suspension, with a front wheel that turns for walking and locks for jogging. We put a ton of mileage on our strollers, so we need a good one. The bad news is the price tag: $470 plus 13.5% tax. And we would need the weather shield, another $50. Used ones sell for only $50 to $100 less. Not enough to justify one with wear and tear, since we USE our strollers. 2 hours per day, five days a week, plus jogging. On unpaved and paved trails.
We owe some people money. Preschool. My mom. Our speech therapist. And we have some old strollers in our garage. So here is the plan: pay people back the money we owe, sell the old strollers, and THEN I can get my Bob.
VERY HAPPY ABOUT THE BOB. Sad I have to wait.
Speaking of waiting, sorry I have been posting less lately. I really have to blame Riley, as I am no longer 'allowed' to be on the computer for more than 5 minutes if he is awake. And now that he crawls, there is just no way I can take my eyes off of him for more than 3 seconds at a time (I'm working on babyproofing, but it's tough with the older kids' stuff! Plus, he eats the TINIEST specks of dirt, sand, bug, or cheerio!)
