And since it was the aftermath of a great snow, I opted to take TRAX and the Streetcar to get around Sugar House for my last-weekend-before-Christmas shopping needs.
The streetcar is about a block-and-a-half from all the businesses on 21st South. When the sidewalks are not clear of snow, and when you are pushing a baby in a stroller, this is quite a distance. There were a couple of places where the snow and ice was so thick that it was impossible for me to roll the stroller at all; I had to pick it up and carry it with both hands over the icy obstruction.
After one of these traversals I grumpily bent down to check on Baby—the stroller was covered in a blanket, so I couldn’t see him directly. I lifted the blanket to see . . . Baby fast asleep, his long eyelashes resting on the top of his cheeks.
Any baby that can sleep through all that is a champ. I think we’ll keep him around.
