As most of you reading this might know, little bear turned 2 years old recently!! I know, my heart is aching so much, he seems to have just grown and flourished in the last couple of weeks and no longer looks like my baby anymore. Anyway, I struggled for so long with ideas of what to get him. It’s recently been Christmas so he received plenty of things for that which I had to make lots of room for and there was just nothing specific he needed or I wanted for him that either he didn’t already have or was suitable or just didn’t take up a ridiculous amount of space or get lost.
From when we found out we had a tiny human on the way, we had thought long and hard about childcare (after all of the other baby related stuff that clouds over your brain). We came to the conclusion that when our child turned 2, we would look for a childminder as we thought we would also get the 15hrs free. Unfortunately (in some cases) we don’t qualify for the free 15hrs but also, the decision on childcare has taken a turn.
You’re stuck indoors wondering why your toddler is destroying the place, not listening to you and whining (a LOT). So you want to get out (it’s rare these days you go stir crazy) but outings always mean to the park. Why not make it a little more fun and throw a Toddlebike2 into the mix. Your child will definitely love it and it makes outings so much more exciting. I’m so so grateful for Toddlebike for gifting us one of these even if I do have to get it out on most trips to the park and I love that bear has his own little bike now.
As a mum of an almost 2 year old (no, YOU’RE getting emotional) I feel like I’ve adapted pretty well to the parenting business. I’ve also learnt a bloody lot. About pregnancy, newborns, babies and toddlers (though not all toddlers of course haha!) Though I’ve found as tough as parenting can be, there are some brilliant moments and each day is never the same.
I know it’s a little late in the game to put out a post like this, especially as I love getting ideas from these kinds of things but well, there’s only a week left until Christmas right and I’d have thought most people would be finished with their shopping by now (though whenever I drive anywhere at the moment, that certainly doesn’t seem correct). But I thought I’d put this together and show you all some bits little bear is getting for christmas.
