As a child, I can remember the excited feeling I got whenever my mum said that we could pop into the toy store whilst we were out. Now that I am a parent, I watch the children’s faces light up as I mention that we have time to pop into Smyths Toys on the way home from wherever we have been. The sparkle appears in their eyes and chattering starts between them on our drive over there. Planning on what to look at first, guessing to see if they have any Skylanders on offer or whether they have new sets of LEGO available.
Almost as soon as I saw those lines appear on the pregnancy test my mind started to think about all the different things that I would need to research, purchase and utilise. Having a baby is an exciting time, however, it can at times be a little overwhelming, especially when you take a glimpse at all the baby accessories, equipment, and essentials that are available to purchase.
