Life in the fast lane

The big difference from living in an apartment smack in Zürich city - is mainly that it was very easy to get ourself out of the apartment for a walk, quick errands or to use the excellent tram system Zürich is providing. That we had it just outside my entrance door, made life very easy and I hardly used the car. Where we live now, in a typical residential area with few buses and trains, I need the car daily and use it at least one time per day. Which means in and out with the children in car seats, packing for a little excursion and not to forget, folding the pram many times per day. With a sibling pram it takes both a little time and space in the car and I felt that I needed a pram that could stay in the car most of the time for things like grocery shopping or just situations when I can have Alexis walking next to me. In other words; for everyday errands!

It needed to be small, neat, practical and just easy to manoeuvre, so I ordered the latest addition to the STOKKE collection, the SCOOT which is exactly that. I took some time for me to decide If I really need it, but oh I love it and it's my best decision ever! And it comes in black and I got the cutest little sleeping bag for him with small dots. You can even put it to sleeping position which is just another genius possibility and something a lot of these more "easy" sitting prams often lacks. But since children takes one or two naps per day, up to the age of three, that is sort of crucial.

When Leon is older, I can also turn the sitting chair so he can sit from the other side and look at the world instead of his mother. But so far he is so small and we can honestly not take eyes of each other quite yet ...

  1. I´ve been thinking a lot which really is the most practical way of living when you have children - is it the freedom of having a house with a large garden where you can let the kids run out and play but where you on the other hand, as you say, are a lot further away from everything? Can the convinience of living in a very centric apartment with everything just outside the door sametimes be an easier lifestyle? I´m really curious to here what you (even though you just recently moved) and your readers think about this! I´m at the moment an ambivalent housowner, former centric citychic...

    1. Yes, when it comes to choosing a pram. It's said with a hint of humour.
