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!
