When your child may be too big

Don’t know if you’ve ever seen this before, but say you’re walking along and a parent comes towards you with a stroller and in that stroller is their child. As you look down at the child, something doesn’t seem quite right about the situation though. You don’t know what it is at first, but after a second, you realize that the child in the stroller is far too big to really be in a stroller. Such was the case when I was walking through Union Square on Sunday. This guy had his son in a stroller, who looked like he was about four or five.
Now, hey, I don’t want to judge since I don’t have kids and what you want to do with your kids is your call, but there is just something odd looking about a child that big being pushed around in a stroller. It looks like some kind of fraternity prank or something.
Of course, there are maybe potential side effects to this treatment of one’s child as I saw when I was walking up Powell near Sutter and saw these two rather goofy looking guys wearing some kind of NASCAR wannabe pit jackets with all kinds of emblems and sponsor adverts on them. Saying that they stuck out a bit in SF would be a massive understatement. But, it made me wonder if they were simple fashionably challenged, or possibly the victims of prolonged stroller exposure.
