Pushchair Addiction

I can remember wondering why women with children got in such a hype when it came to pushchairs, surely having one was sufficient and the main aim was to simply take the child from A to B?


OK.. so now I get the 'Pushchair addiction'....I have one...

Up until Monday night I only had one pushchair, the Mothercare Spin. This seemed sufficient to me until I got thinking about strollers. My one real love for the Spin is that Leo can face me and I can pull silly faces and have a random natter with him while on the move. This was the one aspect I did not want to say goodbye to yet, and I started hunting out parent facing strollers...and as I am not fussy (Yeahhh Right!!) it only had to be Red in colour, have 3 wheels and just be generally pretty.

See not fussy!

So I found the Quinny Zapp Xtra, and I am now sat here anxiously awaiting it's arrival! Of course the first thing I am going to do is set it up and have a play, maybe even go for a test drive, with Leo facing me of course!

You may be asking yourself, how does she have a pushchair addiction? Well as soon as I found this Pushchair, I had to have it. It wasn't a question of wanting was a necessity.

I sat there with my finger over the button, and the thought of pressing it filled me with the excitement you get on Christmas Eve. See...Addiction is not a pretty sight. I tell myself Leo needed it...but maybe it was just because I wanted it, I guess we will find out.

Do any of you have any pushchair addictions and what do you do with the old ones that you no longer need?

I am now looking to sell my Spin, even though it makes me feel sad...It was after all Leo's first pram. I cannot justify having two...especially if I can make some of the money back, I am sure you know maternity pay isn't great!

I would love to hear all about your pushchair addictions!
