Cravings in pregnancy??? check out this new ad from Mcdonald’s…..i can relate lol

I saw this advert a couple of weeks ago and could not help but laugh…how true is that! You know the feeling when your pregnant and craving for something and only that something will do. This man heeds to his wife’s cravings and goes out late in the night to find pickled gherkins for her. Pregnancy eh…some crave sweet some sour and some even crave clay but whatever it is you crave i am sure you can relate…my husband used to come home with bags and bags of royal gala apples as i could not get enough of it. I used to wonder if in the end i might give birth to an apple so i thank the Lord i had a sweet baby girl…lol

Seek and ye shall find…i found the ultralight Joovy

Ever since my first daughter was born 4 years ago I have gone through more buggies and pushchairs than kiddicare.com. My first ever was a baby weaver travel system which came with a carry cot and a car seat. By baby was nearly 4 kilos at birth and long so she did not get much use of the car seat. She only ever went in the carry cot once at 2 weeks old and cried at the top of her lungs. After this I went through other buggies and most recently the Hauck Freerider which I only purchased 1 year ago but hardly used. Anyway to cut the long story short I have found the buggy that I should have purchased 4 years ago…introducing the Joovy ultralight! I did not want to waste anymore money on buggies so I decided to buy on gumtree.com. A nice lady listed one some time in May,i paid £65 and collected. My superhusband steam cleaned it for me and it looks fantastic. So far I have managed to ditch the sling for good and have been using my new best friend the Joovy ultralight. It is so easy to push and I love the fact that Grace can stand up on the board or sit on the bench if she gets tired after a long day out. This buggy has made nursery run so much easier especially when getting on or off the bus. It only takes the space of a single buggy so no more grumpy bus drivers telling me to wait for the next bus. Shame this buggy is not widely available here and I only had 2 options ebay or gumtree. There were plenty of sellers all based in America but by the time you calculate £80 shipping fee, it is enough to put you off. My advice if purchasing a buggy, buy a good one which can be used for years and for more than 1 baby if you intend to have more of course…(wink wink). This buggy can accommodate a new born baby by enabling you to attach a car seat. It can accommodate a toddler and so far I had been able to carry my 1 year old,her big sister and their friend from nursery so yes it is amazing it can take 3 children. I am really enjoying my hassle free outings and highly recommend this buggy.
