Now that the temperature is more often at or below the freezing point, the absence of a car is growing more acute.
Having to bundle Henry up in his snow pants, coat, hat and gloves every time we go out, especially those daily trips to and from daycare, can become really tiresome. Most parents just throw their bundles of joy in the minivan and do not have to spend 5 minutes on the daycare floor struggling with zips and snaps and sweaters.
In addition, having to make several small trips a week to the grocery store and lugging heavy bags of food in all kinds of weather, all this extra time spent can become wearing.
That said, Henry loves the act of travel. He loves most vehicles and the bigger the better. Henry is a regular rider of public transport, and today's journey to the Christmas Market at the Distillery proved that not having a car in the city certainly has some bright spots.
