Oh, these kids and their tumblrs! If only I'd had the foresight to start one of these things a year and a half ago, I, too, could've been on Salon.com this week!
Strollers, of course, are a tool of control; they exist as much for the convenience of the parents, and for dealing with the raw logistics of whatever airport/theme park/tourist city they have to navigate, as for the seemingly superfluous transportation entertainments of a gawky 7-year-old.
And while I know where the smug bemusement of a random, childfree passerby ranks on parents' list of things they give a shit about, let's give Too Big For Stroller her due. It is adorable that she thinks the choice here is between pushing a kid or making him walk.
Because what these parents are really choosing between is possibly appearing anonymously on some smug hipster's tumblr, or having your mug shot splayed across the local news for losing your kid at the mall again.
