I Yi Yi

On the Upper West Side when people see me out with my kids you hear: "Wow, you have your hands full," "I've never seen a stroller like that before," or you just get a look like you've totally lost your mind to come out in public with a stroller like that and 3 kids 2 and under.

In West Harlem people are nice and friendly. They hold doors for you and smile. They try to talk to us, but being that they are mostly Latino's their English is broken and hard to understand. Today in the grocery store, which is another conversation, all one lady kept saying a lot is "I yi yi" every time we passed her. Then we ended up in the same check out line. I yi yi!

It's such a shame that some people look at babies as a burden instead of the AWESOME BLESSING FROM GOD that they ARE!!!!

that is nice that people are kind and friendly there and hold doors. Perhaps you could take a class with their language? (I Yi Yi) Another thing to add to your daily list of things to do! lol. I think this is cute I Yi Yi!

I would be rich if I add $1 for each time I heard "you have your hands full."

Glad the new neighborhood is friendly and helpful!!
