Really wouldn't worry about what other people think. Do what is best and right for your dd. Presumably you want her to have fun and if giving her legs a rest for a few minutes while you carry her is needed then do it.
Take a collecting bucket. Little ones can be distracted easily from being fed up of walking if they are collecting coins along the way. Be aware though that most of the coins will be coppers and the bucket may well weigh quite a bit by the time you get to the end. So you'll be carrying that too!
Hi thanks for your reply. We do have one but I'm also gonna be pushing her lil sister I can manage to carry her for a short while as well as pushing the buggy (I've had practice) but I obviously I cannot push both. I'm just gonna carry her and not worry too much. As you say I want her to have fun. And im sure she'll want to get down and fast as she'll be asking to be picked up. Good tip about the bucket thanks
I wouldn't give a flying about what your SIL says.
Will all the other children have a parent with them or will you be in charge of a group of them? If you only have her to look after & all the others have their own parents then do as you like, but if you are in charge of a group of them then I think it would be very unfair to pick her up.
Hopefully as all of the others are walking she wont whinge!
... and sorry, but there's no way I'd give her a bucket, it's going to be a slow enough walk without her stopping every 2 mins to pick something up!! Gahhhh...
Thanks for everyone replies. A buggy board would've a good idea although the theme is space and the buggy is a make shift space ship no room for a buggy board as the flames are tree lol. I'm not in charge. Each child has a parent with them. I might drag her dad along too for added support and support for his sister!!! Plus he can yah the pushchair then.
