It seems impossible that Elanor is too big for her stroller. Not by weight, but ability and independence. But she is.
I still carry the stroller. If I need a safe place for her (or a punishment) it’s handy. If she were to fall and hurt herself, I wouldn’t be able to carry her…likewise the far less likely scenario where she falls asleep. My back won’t allow for it.
To be honest, most often these days I just put stuff I’ve bought, my purse and/or the diaper bag in it. Not the kid.
But maybe it’s time to invest is a less heavy duty stroller than my Bee…maybe a nice MacLaren umbrella that would be easier to take onto the bus?
