It seems to take my youngest absolutely ages to walk
anywhere, we have to stop along the way and introduce ourselves to anyone going
in the same direction, pat dogs (after checking first with the owner that they
are nice dogs of course!) and look for clues (a favourite pastime, where they
make up a story about anything they find along the way, “that bit of rubbish was
eaten by a GIANT!”).
all part of growing up showing an interest in your environment and interacting
with people and animals, but sometimes you need to get somewhere in a

If you take too long the library
closes or you’re late (again) for a soft play session in the leisure center. I still have not built up the
confidence to drive our car, I passed my driving test yonks ago but have never
taken the children out anywhere in it!
So I guess the next best thing would be to get a little bike trailer and
take hubbie’s bike out of the shed! The

and I do get some odd looks for carrying my strapping four year old! My poor hips creak under the strain of it… seriously
he will probably be found in a Rugby scrum when he gets older!
has some good options. I must admit I
am quite partial to the Weehoo iGo2 Pro so
one of my boys could help out with the pedaling then!
I will never be late for
anything again and I might have really impressive thigh muscles. Just imagine the looks of the other mums at
school, as I arrive on time and not looking harassed for a change.
