Even though I have lived and visited New York many times, this past trip was an inspiring one for me! Now working for Bugaboo, I was able to see the city in a completely new light. I was able to connect with NY mothers that thrive off of being in a cultural mecca while raising young children.
There are many, myself included, that would think running around the bustling city toting children and strollers up and down subway stairs sounds like a lot of work, although I must give these moms some major props because there are no other kids in the world that get to have recess in central park or field trips to the met. It was so inspiring to see all the opportunity and endless activities New York offers mothers. I came home gushing to my husband, all the reasons why we have to raise our future kids in New York City, ha! He was easy to convince.
On my last night I had dinner with an old friend from college, who is now living in NY with her husband and baby twins. I asked her, "How do you live in NY with two 6 month babies?" She responded simply by saying "How do I not?" I love her spirit and now couldn't agree more. Thats one thing I love about great cities, they teach you something new each time you go by being able to experience the city through so many eyes.
