Let’s face it: as parents, we are not allowed to own anything nice. Buy a nice car and inevitable barf will end up crusted in the backseat; Purchase the perfect date night outfit and plan for spit-up or a major blow out to happen just as you prep to walk out the front door; Lean in for a hug and spaghetti sauce hands end up on your hand bag; Splurge for a housekeeper and watch within minutes the dirt return; And don’t even get me started on the couch that was your first non-Ikea furniture expenditure that somehow got relegated to a trampoline no matter how many times you try to patiently say: jumping is for outside.
As a BOB Ambassador (ahem) when my Duallie first arrived – by far the nicest stroller I have ever owned in my 7 years of parenting — I couldn’t help but think how it would only stay so stylishly perfect for long. Swearing up and down that THIS TIME I would not let a speck of dirt hit the sleek design when of course the moment happened. Stopping for our usual hot chocolate, my two year old and I were walking past the parked stroller to sit on a bench when she tripped and spilled her beverage on her shiny new ride.
NOOOOOO… I thought. Trying to have a great attitude, I thought about how I will have something to forever remember this moment by, still hoping overall that it would clean up.
And it did. In fact, I grabbed a napkin swiped it up and not a single stain on the ultra padded canvas seat. At long last I may just be able to get away with owning something nice.
