For the last few months there has been an ongoing debate in our household, and even Pizzly has weighed in on the subject.
What double stroller should we pick up for when Two arrives?
Yes, I know that Pizzly is almost 2 already and shouldn't need to be in a stroller for too much longer, but I have to be realistic.
I walk with a cane, so it might be nice to have a way to contain the Pizzmeister and Two while we go for walks to the park or during trips to the zoo or just wherever we happen to go, and I refuse to leash my kids.
So, now all we have to do is decide which tandem stroller is best for us.
But, man, there are a crap load of options out there. Do we get the Graco, the Baby Trends, the Contours, or another brand? Should I go for a side by side stroller, a sit and stand, or what?
Well, luckily enough for us we have another 7 months or so before we could actually us it, but in the mean time there are some decisions to be made.
Do we go for the contours that looks kind of cool, and has a variety of car seat attachments?
I have to admit. I like the fact that it has two shades because, let's face it, both Mama Bear and I are glow in the dark white. Therefore, Pizzly is glow in the dark, and I am sure Two will be too, so I am liking the shades.
What about a Graco?
No, it isn't quite as snazzy as the contours, but our friends who have a graco said that they liked it, and it has a nice boot. It looks I could stow tons of crap in there.
And, we already have a Graco new born carseat.
What about this three wheeled monstrosity?
It looks kind of cool, and the wheels are nice and large, so, theoretically, it should be easy to push around town while walking to the park.
But, it seems a bit wide for when we go out to other places like the mall or grocery shopping.
What about this one?
It seems like it would be nice and maneuverable, and Pizzly would be able to hop on and off willy-nilly.
But, I am not sure if that would be more of a hassle than anything else, and the boot in it is kind of small. Not a lot of room for snacks and such there.
Or, what about something like this umbrella style stroller?
I really like the idea of it being light weight and ultra foldable, but I am not sure if it is something I could use when Two is brand new.
That, and the tiny wheels might make it hard to walk around town with. You know how sidewalks are. They are never smooth.
I also wonder if it is something I could push around with my one unoccupied arm, and there is no boot to store bottles and snacks in. That may be a problem.
Hmm...I think I am going to need help on this, especially from those of you who have multiple children and have used a tandem stroller or are using one.
Any suggestions on brand or style?
What is the deal breaker for you?
What options are really nice to have?

Man, I am glad that we still have seven months to make this decision.
