well, i am a bit disapointed that i didnt get a Bob stroller (after the euphoria i had last night) but thats ok....know what i did? i bought E a lambskin insert with some fo the money i saved. i just found this website and they NEVER have shipping....wagon depot
or somethign like. they have the coolest riding toys (like every animal known to man it seems and its at discount prices...and free shipping!). i got the lambskin for $38. that may not be that much of a steal, but i think they were more elsewhere and i know i saved on the shipping.
i wish i had the Bob stroller b/c of the locking wheel...but i really dont want to use the stroller for more than jogging so...maybe thats good...dh would be likely to say "lets just bring the stroller so you dont have to worry about the baby carriers"....well...uh...i like WORRYING about the baby carriers!!!
michelle...i appreciate you telling that and i will look into it, but i have to do something and Ethan is already 18+ lbs. i know many kids are that size at 1 year, so (after a llittle bit of research), i think he's going to have to deal with less than a year. maybe ill just walk until he gains a few more pounds, depending on the weight i find. if you know of anywhere i can look, let me know.
Wendy, do you jog with your baby????
if i cant do it, i can still walk and this is much better than the stroller my friend gave me (that hasnt even been unfolded...i looked at it last week and it has cobwebs on it!lol!).
Michelle, good emergency exit strategy!!! i used to do that with ds2 also.
starparticle, i enrolled both my older kids in swim classes but didnt know you could do that with an infant. duh! my 2 older ones were 2 and 3 years old and they had a blast but would love to get Ethan in a class...and it looks like so much fun! the photographs were beautiful! ill take a 5x7 of the 2nd one! lol!
the onbu with the spirographs is a WAHM one. it is reversible too with some pasley like designs on the other side. im sellign it on TBW!
ok, now to bug the seller and see when he's going to ship it!
oh, and get this! i had 2 coach bags that i never use and probably wont use again (being an old mama of 3) that i sold on ebay...and guess what? they sold and that covered the cost of my stroller!! so.....i just got a jogging stroller in exchange for 2 coach bags...pretty good deal, since all they were doing was taking up space in my closet!!!
