Was our vacation to California relaxing? Not really. Was our vacation to California easy? No. Was going to the beach, zoo, desert, coast, shopping, dinner, pool, etc. easy? Definetely not, but, it was SO worth the trouble.
I’m a firm believer that taking kids out to dinner, on little day trips and on vacation makes them GOOD at going out to dinner, taking little day trips and going on vacation. There’s a learning curve, of course, and infants are too young to know what’s going on. I think they feel different vibes though. They see different things, smell different smells and see different people. Going out expands their little worlds.
Now that I’m done waxing philosophically — how the hell do we actually go, and do with one toddler who doesn’t always want to go where I go, and two babies who can barely crawl. STROLLER. I freaked when I found out that I was gonna have three very little kids. I have to go out. I absolutely cannot be stuck at home. I’m awful at it. So the search for a legit stroller for 3 began. They don’t exactly exist. BUT — I did find a double stroller with an awesome little thing called a Joey seat. It ain’t cheap, but frankly, I didn’t care.
So with the Joey seat, Lana feels really cool. She likes to say, “I’ll lead the way”, and I like to say, thank God I can push all my kids in one stroller. Joey seat comes off, and then it’s just the Valco Baby Trimode Ex Twin. Quite the mouthfull.
There is no way in God’s green earth that you can go anywhere with this dune buggy and go quietly into the night. Uh huh. We attract SO much attention with this stroller. Anything from “That thing is awesome” to “You poor woman”. To the latter individual I say – well – I probably can’t type it here. Anyway, that my twin mommy or three small kids mommy friends, is how we get wherever it is we’re going. And we like to go, so we do! Be brave!! You can do it too. Here I am loading the bottom compartment with extra stuff at the San Diego Zoo.
Here are a few vacation pics to inspire you to just go! You can do it! So what if it’s hard! Life isn’t easy, but living it is the only way to go. So what if the kids cry. So what if they annoy some random mean person that you’ll never see again. Take them out to see the world and to learn how
to live in it.
