Since I found out I was pregnant I have always wanted the "latest and greatest" stroller. Living in Orange County on a budget for baby items is rather difficult...especially when one sees all the neat-o strollers being pushed around by posh svelte mommies toting their designer diaper bags and teetering on Louboutins. My friend and I would daydream about being one of these mommies while we would sit out people-watching during our lunch break from work. "Daydream" is the imperative word here.
Reality: I ended up with a car seat/stroller combo which my mother picked out at Babies R'Us since it was "practical and matches". The carseat was heavy with babe in it (I don't know how those women hang the carseat on one arm!). The stroller was easy to fold but was not really stylish. Needless to say that we ended up buying another stroller, or rather I ended up buying another stroller, after seeing someone with it at a baby show. I of course purchased that on eBay and ended up selling it after only a couple months use. That one worked out well but still was not on my ENVY list. Oh and if you were wondering about the carseat/stroller combo - that one was sold as well (almost new) at a super low price but I tell myself since it went to someone who really needed it - it was charitable in a sense.
Kenzie received the Britax B-Ready Stroller from Two of a Kind. I have heard only good things about Britax so I was excited to try it out. Background: Kenzie is not a stroller babe. She squirms and does not want to sit in it for long periods of time unless I bribe her with something (usually food or promises of seeing doggies). My theory has been that since she was not exposed to a "luxury" stroller since birth, she has loathed her strollers - yes I understand this is MY theory.
