For the last few months, I’ve literally felt like some sort of animal, hibernating in my burrow.
Except I’m not underground, I’m crunched up in a ball under blankets inside the house with my kids next to the fireplace.
This winter has been absolutely BRUTAL.
I’ve shoveled the driveway the EXACT number of times I’ve been outside since December 😉
HOWEVER, I have a lot to look forward to this spring. I’ll probably buy myself a few new t-shirts, get a haircut, go running and basically convert myself from an overweight Grizzly Adams recluse to a clean-shaven, toned-up stay-at-home dad.
My youngest son (and our newest edition), however, hasn’t had this luxury.
Mason has no money, no hair and up until last week, everything he owns has been handed down to him from his two older siblings.
He doesn’t know the difference, but it really sucks not having anything of your own. Something that smells fresh and new… not like vomit from ’09 or road-trip diarrhea from the ’11 cross-country roadie.
But thanks to Quinny USA, the boy has his own stroller…
…AND IT’S SWEET. The Buzz Xtra.
And it was easy to put together.
Not only can he floss up and down the county-maintained macadam street, to and from the playground in the new Quinny Buzz Xtra with extra large canopy, but we can hit some tough country with this bad boy and it’s all-terrain wheels, seeking out the newborn granola honeys… while I shed some winter pierogie weight.
It might help to mention that this thing rides like a dream… literally, I thought I was dreaming and this wasn’t my kid… (BUZZER NOISE) just kidding… I haven’t COMPLETELY lost it yet.
And also, the seat pops off so that you can go stealth without the wheels–pop into the coffee shop or convenience store to get the latest US Weekly (not me!).
We absolutely LOVE this thing… if only they would design one that I could ride in… AHEM… Quinny execs?
Stay tuned over the next few weeks as I show you how it works and embarrass myself on video…
Until then, HAPPY SPRING, folks… have a great weekend.
