  • Of Food And Love: Shoes And Strollers

    We love shoes.

    Me and D and some lady who happened to be sitting across from us

    We finally bought some new boots for D.  Long time coming…like, he’s never had boots before.  SCORE for Daffy’s.

    If you’re going to the city for any length of time, make sure your shoes are comfortable.  And if you’re going with kids…make sure you bring the mother of all strollers.

    My kids ride in style.  hah.  We have a Phil & Ted’s which lets you cart around two kids for the space of one.  I LOVE it.

    Roma chilled on the bottom bunk.

    Cy got the top bunk

    Seeing the city from a stroller’s eye view.  The kids didn’t complain.  We, papa and mama, were the chauffeurs, who doesn’t want that?  Just don’t try to wiggle your way into a subway car during rush hour with a stroller.  People really scowl at you.  As a courtesy, you should always try to fold the stroller so more people can shove their way in to breathe down your neck, that is, of course, if you have TWO kids in the same stroller and one is sleeping.  We made it out alive and, in general, people are helpful and offer to lift the “carriage” (as they call it) up and down stairs for you.  It’s nice.

    The more you go the more familiar you become with the stops that have elevators, or are easy to navigate.  Not every stop has an easy way out with a stroller.  Bless those kind strangers who have helped me up and down staircase after staircase.

    When it’s all said and done, you’re just happy to be back where you’re not sharing the same air space with about a hundred other people.  I have to admit, though, the subway is my all time FAVORITE place to people watch, and I would gladly, (and stupidly) brave the rush our train traffic just to jostle around in a car for a few stops to hear snippets of conversations, stare at the fashion, watch people problem solve or not, spy on what someone is reading…it’s all fun, for a moment.

    Then, it’s time to disengage.  Last stop, South Ferry. (which now has an elevator, thank God!)

    I know you are anxious to come back to Cali but you have had the most wonderful adventures living on the east coast. You will never forget these years.

    Misha you weren’t in times square
    Because the ratio had to have been a zillion to ONE! Wow what a chore just trying to walk …… let alone a stroller with two kids. Totally crazy time in the city but I loved it! We were caught up in a traffic jam of people when I looked down (because I was holding the tail of my husbands coat and in the middle of bumper cars) there was this little boy being pushed in a stroller next to me with a look of panic on his face, he looked up at me ready to cry and I smiled back at him knowing exactly how he was feeling! We turned on 46 th street and finally we broke free! Great fun……………….not :-/

    @Lauren — I LOVE the East coast. I do! I’m ready to go back home, but the East coast has a place in my heart, for sure.

    Hahahah, yeah, no, Deb, not in Times Square, for sure. We were in SoHo that night…crowded, yes, overcrowded, no :)
