Bus rides, babyccinos and blog posts
What are your toddler’s favourite things to do? As well as baking funny cupcakes, making loads of mess with paints and running around for hours, one of Eliza’s most loved activities is go to a ‘cafe’ and get a babyccino. Which really makes me laugh in a ‘kids today, eh?’ way.
She also loves public transport – the ‘train that goes under the ground’ and the tram are firm favourites – and sitting on the top deck of the bus makes her really happy. Especially if there’s a babyccino at the end of it.
We’re trying to cover all of these as part of my master plan of toddler activities before the baby arrives. Admittedly, I’ve really never been a massive over-scheduler when it comes to activities. We have been getting out a lot, but we’ve also been spending lots of days where we just hang out in the house as I think we both need this balance.
And because today will probably be rainy (of course!) here’s some blog posts to read if you’re staying close to home:
* As I’m looking for a new camera but completely clueless about the world of DSLRs, I was quizzing Kat from the lovely lovely Kat Got the Cream blog about hers. She’s now written about it here
* Giving birth soon? I was fascinated by this post from Clemmie about active labour and keeping moving, even if you are being monitored and you’re told to stay on your back on the bed (Was anyone else told this? I was last time; I refused because it hurt too much and the midwife was cross)
* And it’s still toddler month on TalkMum, and this week I’ve also written on picking baby names and top toddler apps.
Have a great Monday x.
