Elmo Needs an Elmo Band-Aid

Oh no! The Elmo stroller broke! 

I know a broken foot rest isn't the end of the world, but it's bad enough to be annoying. And our slightly OCD Riley was quite distraught.

The poor stroller has logged at least 500 miles, so we discussed buying a replacement. But we just couldn't do it. It's become like a family member. (And kind of iconic in our neighborhood.) 

So instead, Matt performed minor surgery. 

And now it's as good as new, no duct tape necessary. Hooray for resourceful daddies!

(We never imagined getting so attached to a cheapo umbrella stroller...)

Yay for Matt. I'm sure Riley is grateful!

Umbrella strollers are the best! I would die if mine broke! And you can't just throw Elmo out with the trash!!! Good for Matt!

The same thing happened to our umbrella stroller too, but we just made Porter deal with it. Good for Matt for being so resourceful!

I remember when you first bought that stroller and neither of us were quite sure what to think of the bright red Elma staring back at us. *Sniff Sniff* memories....
