Baby on board

It’s the question I’ve been asked far more than anything else since I got knocked up: “Are you still gonna, like, do the walking thing?”

A valid question, and one that I wanted to explore in more depth before our little one arrived. As much as I want to keep walking, biking and taking transit with a newborn, so many people have told me it’s impossible. Especially in LA.

Luckily, my good friend Sarah Rich tapped me to write a story exploring it on Re-Form, Medium’s brand-new design publication. Head of there, where you can read my story “Multimodal Mom.” I talk about the challenges, both societal and infrastructural, of living car-free with kids in the U.S. And I lay out a plan for how I hope we can be successful multimodal parents in LA. Of course I’ll be reporting back to see how well it works.

    It’s only the white transplants who worry about walking, biking or taking transit with a newborn. Locals in East L.A., South L.A. and The Valley do it all the time ! Just check out the nearest Metro stop.
