This probably goes down as one of my more adventurous weeks of motherhood.

5. Greta’s stroller goes rogue
I’m so proud of myself that we’re out the door on time. We’re meeting Craig at the shop at 11:30, so we started getting ready at 9:45. We breast feed, get her dressed, and then mix a bottle because she still seems hungry. She decides it’s more fun to be silly and have a smiling fest while trying to eat. Ug. I get myself ready in between failed attempts to feed her – until she’d fuss because she was actually hungry. Then, more smiley eatings… then mom gets stuff ready… then some fussiness… you get the picture.
We get into the stroller and she starts to wail. “I’m HUNGRY, mom!”, Greta shrieks. No! We have to go! I bring bottle out to the stroller, propping it up so that she can eat but that I can still start running. Wonder how long it’ll stay in this position…
Then, try to close garage door. Big gloved hands = multiple attempts at the code. After the 2nd failed try, I turn to see the stroller rolling down the driveway! AHHHHHHH!!!!!
I sprint to catch her as the stroller crashes into the snow bank.
Actually, it was more of a gentle stop into the snow, but it reminded me: Wear the safety strap when closing the garage door 🙂
I only hope the neighbors were watching. It would have been fun to have watched, I’m sure.
