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.


Children do say the cutest things:)


My 8 month old baby girl enjoys playing with her daddy and her daddy likes a bit of rough play so he would put his head near her face allowing her to pull his hair and slap him. The hair pulling part I think its clearly a learned thing no thanks to daddy whereas the slapping thing is more of a reflex thing. Anyway to cut the long story short, I was holding baby princess yesterday when she gave me a surprise slap on my nose. Her big sister who is 3 years old told her off. She said,’no smacking, that’s not nice you have to go to the corner now for 8 months’…It was so cute i had to share it with her grandmama over the phone straightaway. Grandmama was so amused she wondered how long she would get sent to the corner for (she is in her late 60s).I love these little priceless moments

I remember a few weeks ago we attended her friend Racheal’s 4th birthday party minus daddy. There was a  big match on that day and i do not even remember who was playing but my husband could not and would not miss it so he decided to stay home and we went without him. When we arrived at the party and greeted everybody i was asked where hubby was and i told them he was at home at working on the computer (he really was ). Later the birthday girl’s dad asked my daughter  where daddy was and she replied ,’his at home watching Chelsea’. This was so embarrassing and so funny at the same time but i am so glad we all laughed off the situation. 🙂
