Today my littlest Miss and I headed out to try a local Mum and Toddler group. Now that she's moving around and generally showing much more interest in what's going on round about her, I'm keen to find new experiences for her to explore and take in.
We met a friend of mine there, who has very recently given birth to a beautiful baby boy. I was somewhat distracted by all the newborn loveliness, but I still had time to get a feel for the toddler group. The hall was clean and there was a great variety of toys available for the children to play with. The older children had a snack, and the mums had a cuppa. Everyone seemed warm and welcoming and there was a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere - and all the children were having fun.
Molly spent the first hour playing intently with the same car and babbling to anyone that paid her attention. Then she promptly fell sound asleep in my arms - socialising is exhausting!
We enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be returning next Thursday to get to know the group better!
