Our New Toy
We didn't find it on kigigi, or on ebay, and we didn't pick it up at garage sale for cheap. Unfortunately we just went to our local bike store and spent the bigger part of our tax refund on it. It's called the Chariot Cougar, because presumably most people feel better spending vast sums of money on something if it's named after a ferocious wild cat (or an aging woman who likes young men). Anyway, this thing costs $675 and that's before you even put the front wheels on it. Seriously, to actually use it you need to buy extra doodads to make it into a stroller, or attach it to a bike.
Adam has already taken William for long bike ride. I stayed home with Jadzia because apparently you have to be at least one year old to ride in a bike trailer. Everyone's so paranoid nowadays. I haven't ridden a bike in three years (since before getting pregnant with William), and it looks like I'm going to make it four
Ah, but it will make a nice two-baby stroller (as you can see by the above store model). I've been busily using Google Maps to find good walking routes to all my favourite hangouts. I'm going to be the fittest Mom ever!!! (For three-days, and then the novelty will wear off).
