Hold on, you WALKED HOME after giving birth to both your kids?
Granted it was slow but yes, we truly walk everywhere.
When I need to take the kids to the doctor, it's just down the block.
I have 5 parks within walking distance.
- One fancy schmancy stroller that rides "smoothly" over the ohso rough streets of the NYC terrain (slight sarcasm there, this ain't hiking).
- One good umbrella stroller for when you put it in the back of a cab or take on the bus. (I got mine on the Martha Stewart show... that's another story)
- 2 snap n go's (so you can take the baby around the corner easier with the car seat- and 2 because one is a friend's and has a cup holder...Mama needs her coffee)
- A fancy double stroller- I went for the front/back "minivan" that has a lot of space for my oldest and will fit in between narrow NYC doorways. No really, it's huge.
We rack up memberships. They often aren't that expensive (okay, some are more than others...) and if you go more than twice it usually pays for itself. These are some of the memberships that we have:
