Ditching the Car

This morning we left the car at home. The little man still needed to get to daycare and I still needed to get to work (unfortuntaely), but we went back to public transit. It's taken us a while, but a sometimes sensitive little guy, a ridiculous lack of accessibility on the transit system, and inclement weather have all conspired to keep us driving the 30 minutes minimum to travel that epic 5km. Ok, so that is a bit of an excuse, but actually getting life organized is a bit of challenge more often than not.

So after scouring Kijiji and Craigslist we managed to get our hands on a baby-backpack. Now I'm schleping him 'round town. Sure I need to organize a change of shirts at the office and he's not so sure about the dark subway tunnels, but the car is firmly parked. At least it was today. Hopefully it will be tomorrow too. And the day after that. 

I'll let you know how it goes when we're stuck between stations on an a/c-less train in rush hour in desperate need of dinner due to signal troubles at Woodbine. . .
