Kids and Crowds

Last night we finally made it to Taste of Edmonton.
It was packed as usual but with our 3:2 ratio of adults to children and lack of stroller it was a breeze.
Cedric showing off how much he enjoyed the food.
Am I the only one who finds having a stroller at festivals a huge stress?
When I do have one I feel apologetic to and begrudged by my fellow festival goers.
Also at Churchill Square you need to be able to navigate over curbs, lawn and the occasional stair.

Granted, I am very lucky to have a toddler who listens well and stays close.
{Talk to me again when I expect this of Cedric, I feel like it may be a smidge different.}
But I really feel like Fiona should be able to walk with us in a crowd at 3 years old.
I will admit that my expectations of her can be high for her age.
I've said before that I may have urged her to grow up before her time when Ced was born, this is just another example of that fact.
It wasn't intentional.
I researched and planned to purchase a double stroller when pregnant.
I was waiting for a deal or maybe even a used one to pop up when I was forced to make it work with the single one day.
I was nervous but was pleasantly surprised by my then 23 month old.
{She does this a lot you know, surprise me.}
After that I never looked back, Fiona graduated to a walking companion.
As I said, I'm not sure that Cedric will be ready quite so early.
He has all the tell-tale signs of a runner.
Luckily, at almost 17 months and only 21 lbs, I can still easily wear the little guy.
I'm certainly less eager for him to grow up.
