Dads Helping Dads Figure Out Being a Dad

Take a Stroller Down Memory Lane

When I went shopping for a stroller with Jeremy and Mel, I could not help but reflect on our experience with Jeremy and his sister.

Our stroller played a key role in our early life as parents.  Each evening, my wife and I would take Jeremy for a walk in the stroller.

One day, my wife phoned me at work to tell me that Jeremy had spoken his first word!  This is one of those “celebration days” that all parents look forward to and treasure in their hearts – or in our generation, on video tape – for years to come!  What did he say?  ”Momma”?  ”Dadda”?  What???  Well our precocious son clearly said, “Stroller”.  He said it for her.  And he said it again for me when I got home.  And he said it each evening when it was time for our walk!  Like I said, a day to remember!

So, we walked the wheels off of several strollers, and there is one overriding characteristic that I would encourage you to consider when you buy:  ”How convenient will this stroller be to use?”

The stroller that we ended up using the most, was a cheap, light little thing then called an “umbrella stroller”.  It probably only weighed a couple pounds.  The seat of the thing was little more than a hammock.  There was a cheap little belt to hold the child in the seat.  The outstanding characteristic was that you could fold the thing up in about one second and throw it into the trunk of the car, and pull it out of the trunk and deploy it just as quickly.  That cheap little assembly of plastic, nylon, and chrome alloy tubing just kept going and going.  It was not pretty, but it was the stroller that we used the most.

Just something to consider!
