I was driving past the park the other day and saw some women pushing their kids in jogging strollers. I thought those were the neatest things I’d ever seen. If you’re ever being chased by a big dog you can run and not be slowed down by those traditional (non-jogging) strollers tipping over or getting stuck in the grass. That’s when I decided I wanted one but then realized I really don’t like exercise that much. Remember I said I was DRIVING PAST the park not walking through it.
I was thinking about that jogging stroller all day and trying to rationalize why I needed one and then it hit me. I’d form a Mommy and Me exercise class for couch potatoes. I can see it now. I get a treadmill and everyone could meet at my house with their jogging strollers. We’d take turns putting the stroller and baby on the treadmill while we sit and talk or watch Days of Our Lives.
Then I thought about those poor women with more than one child and found out they have jogging strollers for them too. It’s called a double jogging stroller. How neat is that. You can teach both children the importance of exercise at the same time.
Then I hit a snag, I don’t have a treadmill. Of course not being one to give up I decided everyone would have to bring their children’s car seats and we’ll sit the kids in front of the TV and teach them the important role Daytime Dramas have in our society.
