I’m backfrom NYC; tired and worn out. As it turns out I pretty much kept my body on
Pacific time, which kind of worked out well but I really don’t bounce back from
a late night quite like I used to. Anyway, it was a great time (like it always
I didn’t end up doing
much dad-related stuff (I did visit buy buy Baby which I think I’ll write about
it later this week) but I did walk around a lot. Besides noticing every baby
that went by (an unexpected result of being a new dad without his family), I was
also keeping a mental note of stroller activity. It seems by far the most
popular stroller on NYC sidewalks is the Maclaren. I couldn’t say which was
the most popular, but there were lots of them. More interesting for me were the
Bugaboo Frogs, which was cool because I’ve never seen one in my city (other than my
own). Here’s the breakdown.
Number of Bugaboos seen: 5
First Bugaboo sighting: about 5 minutes after arriving in Manhattan.
Favorite color: I’ve got a red one, but the orange looked pretty dope.
Best Bugaboo accessory: The bag clip, which I never wanted, but they actually look kind of useful.
Favorite Bugaboo modification: None. Hey, where are the Bugaboo mods? Aren’t dads supposed to be handy? Don’t dads like cup holders? I’m waiting for an inspired dad to make a cup holder for their Bugaboo, and then let me know how he did it.
