| February 28, 2012

If you haven’t already discovered the wonderful Great Little Trading Company I recommend you have a look, even if it’s just to browse for inspiration through their selection of wonderful childhood items.

GLTC as they’re also known, sell the most beautiful quality products for babies and children from toys and games to children’s bedroom furniture and bedroom accessories.

I love their amazing selection of Toys and Gifts and they have a beautiful range of quality Baby and Toddler Toys that are built to last.

It’s A Dad Thing

I always know it’s the weekend when I’m out and about on a Saturday or Sunday and I see babies and children giggling and laughing and having fun with… Dad.

It warms my heart to see so many Dad’s taking an active role in the lives of their children. And why shouldn’t they? Parenting is about caring for your children, whether you’re the Mum or the Dad.

And it’s only natural that Dad’s will often have a different approach to parenting than Mum’s.

Playing rough and tumble, kicking balls around the house, forgetting to put the toys back in the box, leaving baby clothes strewn on the floor and perhaps not getting quite so caught up in the daily routine as Mum would like.

But it all adds up to new experiences for your child and this can only be of benefit to your children as they learn about different approaches to life.

That said, I still find myself having to bite my tongue when I desperately want to remind my husband that our baby eats lunch at 12pm and needs two naps a day!
