My parents were lovely enough to invite Brad and I home for Easter dinner – it was wonderful!!! My mom made turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and cauliflower and broccoli with cheese sauce … and, of course gravy. Mmmm … it was sooooo yummy!! I realized, though, that stuffing is the nastiest thing ever – soggy lard bread with some onion and celery stuffed up a turkey’s butt. How is it soooo delicious?
My daddy was also nice enough to take Brad and I to a Tim Hortons on our way to Brantford from Hamilton so we could check out a stroller from a lady on kijiji. We absolutely love it!!! It’s an older Bertini (Australian brand) but it was only used for one child and is in phenomenal condition – ie. it looks like it’s never been used!
It reclines *almost* right down (very slight angle) and has a five-point harness.
It comes with the actual Bertini rain cover that snaps onto the frame and actually has boning in it so it doesn’t blow in June Bug’s face.
And it comes with a boot for the newborn/winter times!
The canopy has a peek-a-boo window to see baby that has a velcro cover (to keep the sun out) and three pockets on the back – two about the right size for water bottles, and the middle one is pretty big – could easily fit wallet, keys, cell phone, snacks, etc., plus there’s a zippered part inside. The basket at the bottom is pretty big and has a zippered component at the front and it fairly accessible in the recline position. The tires are pneumatic and 12″ – those puppies’ll push through ANYTHING! All four wheels also move independently, so you can LITERALLY turn the stroller on a dime – you can also lock them for going straight. Umm … what else. The foot cover comes off to be washed (and is covered with fabric/plastic), as does the reversible seat cushion. The handle is adjustable (short and tall alike can push in comfort!), and there’s a removable bumper bar to which one can attach a toddler seat (similar to this … just scroll down).
And the best part? We’re not buying new – so we’re saving resources – AND it was only $125!! I can’t wait to try it out with June Bug inside!! I’m planning to use a baby carrier (probably the Moby Wrap) for the first bit anyways, but it’ll be nice to have the stroller for longer trips!
