Season wise, I'm never totally happy! In winter, I daydream of sandals, ice cream cones and picnics at the park. So obviously, now that we had a few 40C (104F with humidity factor), I often think of wool sweaters, warm tea and afternoon walks surrounded by colorful fall foliage.
But how do cold seasons work with a baby? There are two issues: how will I keep Alice warm without making her sweat buckets and how do I transport her when the streets will be covered with snow (we don't have a car)?
Last winter, when I was pregnant, I was fascinated yet traumatized by numerous women pushing their stroller without much success after a snow storm. Their kids, paralyzed by too many layers of clothes, were often screaming their little lungs out. That normally a 5 minutes walk to the local bakery suddenly turns into a mom nightmare. Anyway!
Last evening, I received an online shopping epiphany: a carrier cover designed with !"#$%?&* Canadian seasons in mind (and on sale)! Alice will be so comfortable (and totally adorable) in her cold weather cocoon!

lin: Thank you so much for telling me that there is actually a name for that condition!!! Sometimes, I take my shower and I honestly don't recall washing my hair but I know that I did because it smells like shampoo! Crazy!!!
marina: Thank you! I can't wait for Alice to fit in your criss cross reversible dress...that pattern is on my list :)
little gray pixel: Totally genius!

daniela: Really? Oh, I want to see a picture of the hat on Olivia.
uk lass in us: It is "good" that I'm not the only one with that stupid memory problem. I also do the "what did I come in this room for anyway" thing. This is bad!!!
peanut: You lived in the High Artic? So awesome! I worked up north for a few months and a lot of mothers were using amouti (didn't know it was the name, thank you!). I love it :)
