Friday is my day off, which means I get to drop Dexter off AND pick him up from school.
It was lunch box day so kids bring their own snack. Here is Dexter's lunch bag and back pack (and the handy new hooks Don installed in our entryway).
I had a bunch of errands to run downtown and didn't fancy riding the bike with trailer all the way. Alice is just coming up on 4 months old, and although I am comfortable with riding her around the neighbourhood and surrounding area, I'd rather take the train for crossing the river. I can get to the school with basically zero traffic to worry about. The journey downtown would be more unpredictable and can wait until she is bigger.
Also, with the errands I would have to take her in and out of the trailer over and over again. If I take the stroller on the train I can just push her everywhere.
After a summer of painstaking practice... Dexter now walks like a true pedestrian!
He's such an independent little dude. Love love love him.
And baby Alice... looking strange. I'm finding it difficult to phone-photograph her in a manner that is true to life. I'll keep trying. She's a super sweetie.
So I walked. ALL DAY. It went like this:
Walk, train, walk, school, walk, train, walk, tailor, walk, bank, walk, lunch, walk, stuff, walk, more stuff, walk, train, walk, school, and finally... HOME.
I am getting every penny out of my aging repettos. The dress was on super sale from J.Crew.
Who says getting around town on your feet and with your kids has to be lame? Transit haters have got it all wrong.
