At her mercy

I haven't been able to blog for a couple of days. Normally, I do my blogging right after we've been out for a walk in the buggy because Baby sleeps on even after we get home. Lately, Baby's sleep pattern has changed and she wakes up at the end of each 45 minute or 1 hour sleep cycle. If I don't time our return home correctly, she'll wake up as soon as we're home and demand attention.

Now that I tend to have Baby and buggy with me wherever I go, I've become much more appreciative of how difficult it must be for the wheelchair-bound to get around the shops. For instance, most cafes are far too small for a buggy, so even if I dared to go for a coffee (risking a hyped up infant to contend with) I would have to sit outside. I decided not to go into the local curtain shop today (to get blackout curtains for the bedroom) because there are steep steps to the entrance. And other shops I just don't bother going into because there's no room to get the buggy around.

Oops, better go - Baby's just woken up from her buggy sleep...

It's not her fault. She just wants to spend time with you..

yeah, but there are hundreds of us out here who can't cope without a daily dose of Violet. I think the baby cage is a necessity. Perhaps all us avid readers could club together....

I have a mom on wheels and we once had to ride the shipping elevator into the Detroit Historical Museum. We got onto the middle and they rose the platform up REALLY slowly.
People don't dote and coo when you roll an old lady, so it is a time saver even though the buggy is way bigger.
