Funny Story

One of the first things that I bought after finding out that I was pregnant was a jogging stroller.  Having always been into fitness, I thought that would be a good way for me to get back into shape after the baby.  Now let me clarify I like to work out, play tennis and do yoga.  My theory about running is that I will only do it if someone is chasing me with a sharp object, but I am not going to be able to take the baby on the tennis court or into a yoga class.  A jogging stroller ust made sense.  Besides they are great for going "off roading".  
My ever resourceful Sister found a “gently used “Schwinn jogging stroller in the classifieds (because you know I wasn't buying one brand new $$).  I was so excited!  Now, at this time I was living in another state, which meant my Mom or my Sister would have to go out and look at the stroller for me.  After speaking with the seller I decided to set up a time for my Mom to go check out this baby jogging stroller.  I explained to my Mom to check out the tires make sure they were not flat, make sure the lining was good, it was clean and had been well taken care of.  I told her what I was willing to pay and hoped she could handle the negotiating.  
 After going over all of this my Mother said to me,.........
“Amy, I don’t understand why you need this stroller.  The baby can’t jog?!”  I said, "Mom it's not for the baby, its for me" "OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO"
True Story!!!!!  This is from the same women that didn’t have any of this fancy stuff when she had me.  (See the Friends post)  If she did she wouldn't have known what to do with it anyway.
