Strolling Through Georgetown Patch


Hasn’t the “Oh, no! I’m having a baby! I need a stroller!”-blog post/article been done ad nauseum? Apparently the newly-launched Georgetown Patch doesn’t think so, offering these privilege-laden nuggets in their latest Opinion column, “Urban Parenting: Tackling D.C. Streets With a Babe in Tow“:

How would I navigate the narrow sidewalks and cobblestone streets of Georgetown ? How would my gear and I tread into tiny Trader Joes? Would Dupont Circle’s Farmer’s Market followers freak if my infant had a colossal meltdown while I was buying organic eggs? AHHH!!

I took a deep breath and made a decision. This beautiful girl was coming into MY world and she was going to love it as much as I do…

By the way, I ended up getting the Snap n Go by Baby Trend. Its compact size makes it Farmer’s Market/Trader Joe’s friendly and the basket makes for a great wine carrier.

Well, I’m glad the agony over being able to purchase gourmet foods post-baby has subsided. If you click over to the column, you can even see a picture of the stroller’s basket being used as, yes, a wine carrier. I wonder what my favorite Georgetown wine merchant, Bassam, thinks about that.
