I just don't love strollers. To me it's a lot of contraption for such a little being. In my mind I'm thinking right now about what I don't like about strollers, personally, and I guees to me they are not more convenient. To me they add another step to getting out of the car or the house and all for what? To put my child on wheels, I guess. It's like a roving playpen with less room for dc to move about.
Of all the children I watch and have watched as a nanny/babysitter what I have learned for myself is that if they are not going to be happy where we are going outside of the stroller, they are not going to be more happy inside the stroller. If they are going to want to run around where ever we are going then they more than likely are not going to want to be strapped into a stroller instead.
I have never had a 3yo that actually wanted to be in a stroller.
These are my reasons for not loving strollers.
As I have said many times in this thread, I am never rude to a person using a stroller, I would of course hold the door for a stroller user(or anyone for that matter) and I have friends who use strollers as a rule and would never say a word to them about it.
I just don't love them and that's pretty much all there is to that.
And I have experienced rude stroller users and that adds to the annoyance.
And my four year old loves the double stroller. She walks when she wants, and when she gets tired she can ride. Or like today when we had to wait in line at the PO, she brought books and toys so she could sit and play with them.
