Matt went to get his hair cut and Brooklyn went with him. I thought I would take Blake for a lovely walk down Main St in Markham instead. When I went to strap her in her stroller Blake got some serious feisty energy in her and did NOT want to strapped. Hereโ€™s the thing...two can play that game, my energy is feistier and she WAS going to get in that stroller. ๐Ÿ˜… She did. But def screamed for a solid 15 min down beautiful Main St. โ€œThese are the momentsโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € I held my head high and walked that screaming child down the street wondering the whole time if I chose wisely in fighting that stroller strapping battle.
