Moana Meets Her New Boyfriend, BOB

BOB has been waiting anxiously for quite some time now to meet his new little girlfriend.

I'm sure he thought he got a raw deal, being sold to a household where he just sat in the corner, week after week, with no outdoor activity. He must have thought that I was full of it when I promised that he's gonna some action one of these days...

But today I made good on my word, and introduced him to Moana.


The first date should always be short, I think. Just a little taste to check the interest level... Moana and BOB spent about 25 minutes together today, and I think that although the first impression was a bit stressful for Moana (mostly her mom's fault for not preparing the straps properly ahead of time), after just a minute or so I think I saw some of the first hints of a smile cross my little daughter's face.


The short outing was good for me too! I gave myself the green light to go after watching my BP stabilize over the last couple of days... it was down to 130/84 yesterday, 124/82 today before the walk/jog... And afterward? 117/80. Exercise is truly my cure-all.

Don't you love the BOB? We've taken ours out almost every day> Baker loves it! Goes to sleep as soon as his carseat is locked into place.
