This morning I decided that I wanted to try and get out for my walk before my hubby left for work. That way I could get out without the kids for a change. Well, between procrastination, a really sleepy hubby, and screaming kids, it didn't happen. But, I knew that I still need to get out for the walk even if I couldn't do it alone.
So, how do you occupy two kids in a stroller for a 50 minute walk..without letting them walk? They say neccessity is the mother of all invention...well, here was what I came up with.
And they were still happy nearing the end of our walk!
(Which is remarkable when Gabe is technically too big for the stroller. Their combined weight is more than the stroller is rated for...lol. )
I, on the other hand, was thinking after ten minutes in that I might have been a little quick to put them both in the stroller as I was already huffing. Lord help me make it!
The realization I came to though is this. I was pushing a 29.5lb stroller, a 56.4lb four (almost 5)year old, and a 36.2lb two year old(122.1lbs in total). I carry more than that in excess weight EVERYDAY!! No wonder I don't have any energy, I waste it all just draggin my own body around. OOYYY!!!
(next time maybe we'll take playdoh!)
