Side by Side

Uploaded: Oct 20, 2015
When our daughter was a couple months old we were gifted a double stroller. While it can take some strength to push two kids up a hill and some skill to weave into narrow doors, I love our double stroller. Especially because it is one of the few places where I see our kids sitting side-by-side.

Sometimes this arrangement presents a problem - when one starts hitting or kicking the other. But it also creates some heartwarming moments - our son holding his sister's hand or trying to calm her down when she is crying.

Our daughter recently took her first amusement park ride without my husband or me next to her. Watching our daughter and our son sit side by side on her first ride is a memory I won't soon forget. There is something so very special about seeing little ones happily sitting right next to each other.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
