I’m a bad mom. I’ve been putting limits on my baby. Here I thought I was doing good by picking out out a couple of fun toys only to discover those toys were wack. Wickety wack! It all started when we went to visit LoriF while home for Christmas. Our daughters are a week apart in age. We got them on the floor together and Lori broke out her baby’s toys. And boy did she have a lot! And they weren’t wack rattles and toy ipods, no sir. They were real toys. Real toys that have buttons, and talk to you with pop up surprises. And Foxy loved it!
She was immediately taken with the toys. She knew just what to do. Here I was thinking she was too young for such toys and they were just right for her. Before I left town, I picked out a couple of interactive toys for her. She loved them. She would sit on the floor and play and play.
Yesterday I headed to a mommy meetup at an indoor play center for toddlers and babies. Before the holidays, I would have thought Foxy was too young for such an outing. Now, I know it is just what she wants. I knew she liked it immediately. We were surrounded by babies playing, there were nursery rhymes on the sound system (which I knew the words to every song because I have the same CDs). There were bubbles coming from the ceiling and toys everywhere. Foxy immediately started talking and screaming. She was happy!
We stayed for about an hour. She sat up, played on her stomach and even sat on one of the scooters. By the time we left she was exhausted.
I will definitely be heading back there. I only wish it were closer to my house. In the meantime, its time to fill up the house with some real toys!
