Get your free double stroller here!
July 15, 2008 by snickollet
By now all of you have have probably won a Chicco Twin Trevi stroller—the giveaways have been fast and furious around the ‘Net, and as usual, I’m bringing up the rear. These days my motto is “A day late and a dollar short.” Such is life as the single mom of two-year-old twins.
The good news is that the corollary of my motto is “Better late than never.” And so, with that in mind, who wants to win a free Free FREE Chicco Twin Trevi? (See the end of the post for a pic and details.) The lovely folks at Chicco have one that they will send to you, no strings attached, no nothin’ required. In fact, the only thing that they require is that I come up with some kind of contest to decide who among you is the most deserving of such a luxury.
And now we have a problem. Actually, we have two problems. The first is that I am lazy and am daunted by coming up with an idea for a contest. The second is that I don’t like to pick favorites. I spent a childhood being the last one picked for dodgeball and fretting over whether or not I would get any Valentines in my mailbox. I’m uncomfortable deeming one person more worthy than the next. I want all of us to be winners. Frankly, anyone who has use for a double stroller deserves a free one! Alas, I have only one stroller to give. What’s a twin mom to do?
Here’s how it’s going to go down. Leave a comment. Feel free to tell a funny story, but don’t forget to include the birthdays (day and month) of the two kiddos you plan to lug around in this Cadillac of Strollers. The kid with the birthday closest to that of my little darlings will be the winner. If your babes aren’t born yet, leave your due date. And you don’t have to be a twin parent to enter. Maybe you have a toddler and a new one on the way, for example. Works for me.
See? I’m lazy, and numbers don’t lie. In the case of a tie, um, I’ll figure something out. You have until midnight on Friday (July 18th) to leave your comment and birthdays. The winner will be notified over the weekend.
I shouldn’t need to say this, but this is the United States of American and we love to Cover Our Asses. Please, people, be honest. Some of you may know Maddie and Riley’s birthday. I’m trusting you not to rig this gig. And along those lines, if you’ve already won a stroller, please don’t enter. Let someone else have a shot.
