I have tried not to use my Out 'n' About Nipper double pushchair lately.
Monkey has been walking a lot more with no problems and very little moaning.
But his three days at nursery are obviously tiring him out.
So yesterday, when we had to take the dog for his walk, Monkey insisted that we took the 'big pram'.
I would much rather he walked, but getting him ready to go, he had got his dummy, his Taggie's and his milk, a sure sign that sleep would not be far off. So I reluctantly got out the double. It hasn't been used for so long that it had the beginning of mould on the hood, from sitting in the garage. A quick wipe over and it was ready.
I put them both in.
I do love to see them side by side. I never wanted one of the ones where one sits in front of the other one, I always felt sorry for the child at the back. Both mine can see out and they can talk to each other, hold hands or fight!
I quickly realised and remembered why I prefer Monkey to walk. The walk up to the moors is just that, up! It is amazing how heavy two boys are. The moor was very wet and slippery and I felt the pram slide a couple of times, but we managed a longish walk.
As we headed back the heavens opened, and I didn't have the rain cover.
I thought there would be tears, but both of them loved it and we arrived home rather wet. Worm's hair stuck to his face, and Monkey's Taggie a bit damp!
