I...Must...HAVE...

As each day that approaches brings me closer and closer to having TWO babies at ONE time, I start to freak. How am I going to do this? How am I going to go ANYWHERE? Y'all know how I am, I'm always out and about, doing whatever but I feel like when the new little person comes I'll be forced to lock my doors and stay inside forever!!! NOOOO. That's so not me. I usually try NOT to think about how I'll have two chickens only 16 months apart, but sometimes, I just can't help but freak myself out about it.
I've decided that in order to survive, I MUST have the perfect stroller and THIS is the amazing stroller that I've been drooling over ever since I saw it a few years ago. Phil and Ted's Sport Buggy. Ooooh La La, look at those lovely wheels, those seats, those straps....I'm in heaven.

Look at the way it flattens down for me and the way it converts from a double stroller to a single in just a cinch. How compact it is to be able to push around stores with small isles. And even MORE amazing, the way the back seat flattens ALLLLL the way down for a newborn.



Oh my dear, I'm having a hot flash over this one. I'm such a sucker for strollers. I'm always buying new ones and then selling them and buying again. What is it about strollers and muthas? it's like we CRAVE them. And tell me, why the crap does everything European have to be so much nicer, smoother, sleeker? Why do they have all the smart ideas? And why do they have to be so DANG expensive? Last night I showed my Lover this stroller on my phone and I told him I HAVE to have this stroller. I told him that if I start saving just $4 a day from now until the day the baby comes I'll have more than enough to buy it! How hard could that be? He gave me a look of death and said, "ORRR you could get one LIKE that but for less."
Whatever.
Boys don't understand strollers.

haha...the stroller we got was more than I wanted to spend, too. All the cool strollers that have the best functions, bells and whistles seem to be that way. They lure you in and then you look at the cheapy strollers and there's just NO comparison! Save that $4 a day and buy your stroller! I know...I'm no good for sending you back to the light.

Okay, you're gonna poke my eyes out through the screen. But, of course I clicked on the link to see the stroller in all its excellence (and it IS excellent!). Then the words New Zealand jumped out. As in, based out of New Zealand (not Europe). But, New Zealanders are obviously cool folk too!

On a non-poking out eyes note, I saw someone with a stroller like this the other day and it looked GREAT!!!

That is a VERY cool stroller. I think I want one too and I'm not even going to have two babies at once.. at least not as far as I know. :)

Camilla said...

Ooo...I'm gonna hurry up and get pregnant just so I can get one of those strollers.

My SIL has that stroller and I agree you MUST have it! Maybe you should take up another collection ;)

Girl--any mother that has 2 babes 16 months apart NEEDS that. It is not a want.....Now go forth and buy!

Molly tried the normal graco double stroller....she hated it. hers are 18 months apart. She bought a expensive side by side very skinny double stroller that she has LOVED. So she ended up spending more b/c she bought the cheaper one to begin with. So if you just get the good one to start with you will save money in the long run:)

I'm not that into strollers... I had a Joovy for my kids and really liked it, but they were more like 20 months apart. Man, it sucks being pregnant again before your baby is even ONE!

I'm into gadgets. I have a perfectly fine camera, but there are still like 4 different ones on my wish list!

I second Amanda....It's right up there with the Dyson pros and cons...just go with the good one and use it to death and it will live forever! Not really but almost. Sorry A... but you'll thank all us smarties when you get behind it.

I think its time for another paypal account to be opened!

So, when we go out together, I'll have my "WT" sit and stand double stroller, and you'll have the high tech stroller that changes your kids diapers, feeds them bottles and spits money out. Nice Jessica! Thats just like you to up me!!!!

Loves it!! I have the bumbleride double and I love it and it was the only one that I could find that was "awesome!!!" AND would hold the infant car seat. And it fits through all doorways and is super easy to manuever. This one looks super awesome too!! Buy it!! So, so, worth it! And guys never understand...especially when it comes to strollers and diaper bags :)

Lindsay said...

jealous... well.. of the cool stroller... not of the double babies. though they WILL be a force of cuteness to be reckoned with.
