Dawnnbooks . I did a little research and found that Philly is said to be "baby friendly" and strollers are a good way to get around with an infant. https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g60795-i113-k3842259-Going_to_Philly_with_a_10_month_old_baby-Philadelphia_Pennsylvania.html
Do you think there's value in changing the narrative from "A trip in the car..." to "A trip in his stroller..."?
Dawnnbooks . I'm not entirely sure what I need, but general feedback would be great. I'm also wondering about the Challenge criteria that asks for the stories that "Reflect the lived experience of families living in urban contexts in the U.S., in communities like Philadelphia." In my case, the story (about the trouble with sleep) is universal - but may have roots that are different for each child, depending on their lived experience and context. Do you have any thoughts on how to make it specifically more urban? or does it really matter? In the end, I think a SERIES of stories, each covering a different childhood experience, would be what's needed. Thoughts?
