lol, it was funny. Thing is, these are extremely nice people, who often come over to chat, or for Christmas meals. But one is in his 50s, the other one in her 70s, so I guess they forgot how it was to have little ones. I guess they thought they were offering helpful advice.


And the kids were drawing on our driveway, so they weren't bothering anyone.


Whatever you do, you can't please everyone.

I have a bugaboo with a 5 point harness but she is quite skinny and can wiggle out of the top straps and then pitches herself forward.

It is also difficult to push the stroller and run after her, sometimes I need to leave the stroller and chase her and I am always terrified it is going to go flying into traffic. 


I think a lot of my worries are just me projecting, for the most part I am always impressed at how kind and helpful people are in this city. They are less inhibited so nobody seems to have a problem chasing my kid or catching my stroller when I need help because they have no qualms about not minding their own business and I really like that!


Everything takes forever right now since we jump off every ledge, walk into every store, have to count to 3 every 5 steps, etc. but I need to get the basics done so we can go somewhere where she can really run off that overabundant energy that she can't get out in our teeny tiny apartment.
