Freedom (in the form of a Stroller)
Have I mentioned lately how grateful I am for our hand-me-down Runabout Stroller? (Thanks again, Schleper Fam!)
It spells F-R-E-E-D-O-M for our family. Not only this July 4th Holiday, but all year round! =)
Especially now that we have the hitch for the back of the van to transport it!
Where has our Runabout taken us lately?
~Walk in the Park (by myself, whoohoo!)
I’m working on beating my time for loading the stroller on the hitch, strapping it down, carrying out kids, strapping them in their car seats, and pulling out of the driveway. I think I might be clearing the 10 minute mark.
I have to psych myself up for taking the boys out by myself, but it gives me a rush afterwards, like I can conquer anything that comes my way. Everest, here I come! Plus, I usually reward myself in some way after I’ve accomplished a successful outing. Yesterday it was a frozen lemonade from The ‘Bucks.
It also makes me feel a little bit more like a “normal” mom when I can do things that other SAHMs (Stay @ Home Moms) do.
Brad and I are really striving to have as normal of a family life as possible with our boys. Yes, we have quadruplets, but we aren’t letting it stop us from experiencing life to the fullest.
It just takes a little more effort, preparation, and definitely more patience. =) AND DIAPERS! =)
