Earning our plural.

Savvy readers may have been wondering about a few things. Why is the title of our blog plural when we only have one kid? Why hasn’t Dorea been riding her bike? Why did we make a sappy post about walking H home from the hospital when that was a long time ago? What’s up with the two-kid bicycle seat? (10 points to the anonymous commenter)

It’s true. If all goes well, we will be a family of four this summer. I (Dorea) am pregnant with our second, due mid-June.

Thus far, I do find pregnancy is cramping my car-free style a bit, mostly since I’m not riding the fabulous xtracycle I obsessed over for so long, and have to spend a lot more time waiting for the T and the bus. But I figure if we can survive and thrive during pregnancy+toddler, and later baby+toddler without a car, we will have truly proven it is possible to be happily car-free with kids, at least little ones.

    Thanks!! We’re counting down the days until we get to put both kids on the xtracycle (only about a year and a half of them to go…)

    I cant wait till we have another (its an excuse to buy more bike stuff!) I’m very jealous of the xtracycle and the double seat.

    PS Lovely blog. I’ll be “following” you guys (in the google sense)

    Thanks Cycledad! It’s always nice to “meet” another biking parent.
