I was invited to attend The Baby Show Olympia with the girls by Fisher-Price. I was really excited as this was my first event that I’d been invited to thanks to my blog. I was very nervous about travelling on the train with both girls, the first time I went as a mum of two I had the help of my Grandad and Mum. This time I was going it alone!!
The whole situation would be a lot easier if P1 was an average child of her age; able to walk at a decent pace, not get so tired and not fall over as easy. We never bought a double buggy because we didn’t see a time when we’d need one, we didn’t anticipate trips to London alone, so I went on a search for double to borrow. Luckily, it was quite simple and a lovely lady from nearby offered her Phil & Teds double buggy.
The train journey was just as I’d imagined it to be! Awkward. I swear the people who built trains and stations just didn’t think about parents with prams or children. Let alone disabled people! The double buggy weighed a tonne or more.
When we arrived I was very hot and bothered. I probably looked a state when I stopped at the TotsBots, gNappies and then BumGenius stands! Notice a theme there… I eventually found the Fisher-Price stand and I was on time! I finally got to meet the lady behind Richmond Mummy who I’ve followed for my whole blogging life.
We all were taken upstairs to our own private “party” and it was a chance to be told about the Laugh & Learn range.
Front row seats to watch Puppy & Sis on the stage…
And some free goodies to review…
And that was just the Fisher-Price part of my day! I also managed to grab myself a new buggy to review, alcohol-free wine and a baby yoga CD. Plus we had plenty of fun just looking at all the exciting stands and receiving some fantastic advice.
I would definitely recommend taking someone with you if you have a buggy AND to not pack coats. We were far too hot!
