This is one of the craziest things I've read in a long time. I had no idea strollers were offensive to some (not saying members, just people in general). My 2 are 27m and 13m, and while I do use my wrap at places that have buggies - like wal-mart -I do take my double stroller when I take them both out. It fits through a single door (unless I'm having navigation issues), and is not very bulky. I follow the 'rules of the road', sticking to the right and I walk at a fairly decent pace. My 2 year old is a runner, and so very curious. As much as I love him, I do not trust him to walk unless I can focus all my time on him, and then he must be holding my hand. If someone is offended by me doing what I need to keep my sanity and my children safe, then it's their issue, not mine.

Sadly, I wasn't smart enough to build that particular model.

Wow, that made my day. Hilarious. I wasn't either, and I had three tries! *facepalms*

Mommy to THREE sweet boys & ONE sweet girl + a newb due in February!  I need a nap.
