Comments: Travel Plans

Instead of a double umbrella stroller you could get umbrella stroller connectors and use them to connect to single strollers together.

I got those and they were terrific. The double strollers (at least the good ones) are heavy and unwieldy when folded up. Two singletons are much easier.

Interesting. Do you think that would work as well with two kids of different sizes? I'll be pushing a 20 lb one year old and a 27 lb three year old. The seven pounds makes a bigger difference than one would think.

Yes, it does work with non-twins. You learn to focus your push behind the heavier child. I originally got them for my two older boys when I was pregnant with twins. Another plus, if you want just a single stroller you are not stuck with the double. Double wide strollers are awkward to take through doorways and down shop aisles.

That sounds like fun!! It also sounds scary as all get-out (which may be part of the reason we aren't knee-deep in "moving to Ukraine" plans). Maybe you should just outfit the original Boy with a sling and pop his little brother in ;) 20 lbs isn't much for a robust youngster to lug around!

Did I mention that MY original Boy more or less knocked his younger brother down half a flight of stairs today, absolutely unintentionally? If only they could get that co-ordination and awareness of self in relation to one's surroundings down by 3. Jay felt terrible, poor guy. I had two little wailing boys to comfort. And I was carrying the potty-pot down to the bathroom at the time. NEVER a dull moment.

Anyway, keep us posted so we can pray for you guys!!
