Today I thought I’d give you a little insight into our daily lives and I thought I would share with you all a very important person in our lives; so everyone please meet Panda.
Panda is P1s absolutely favourite thing in the WORLD! We first got Panda back in December 2013. We went on a crazed Ikea storage spree and as any parent knows you cannot go to Ikea with your children and not leave with some weird and wonderful teddies. We have rats, pigs, broccoli, sausage dogs, sheepdogs to name a few but there was something different about Panda.
She was absolutely besotted from the moment I handed it to her as she sat in her pushchair and the love has grown from there. Of course we got two pandas because we knew that if we got just one there would be a war so she actually has two as P2 never was all that fussed and luckily for us she doesn’t mind which Panda she has which is a rarity I know and every time we go to Ikea I always check there’s lots.
There must be something about Panda as my godson and my friends nephew both love them too! They are super soft and very cute so I can see why.
P1 has developed a massive love of pandas in general; for Valentine’s Day I had a huge panda teddy because she had spotted it in a card shop and didn’t seem to want to let it go (my husband is a pushover sometimes!) and my card too was a panda! She also loves the Cbeebies show Same Smile as that had three pandas in it – she’s engrossed!
It’s lovely that she has a favourite teddy and has from such a young age. Charlie had a baloo teddy my Mom got him before he was born that he still takes to bed now and as a child I had a sylvester the cat teddy that I took EVERYWHERE. He was an incredibly well travelled toy. It’s nice that she has something to soothe her and the fact that she doesn’t mind which one is a bonus as if God forbid we ever lost one I know we could replace and bed time wouldn’t be a screaming meltdown!
Does your little one have a favourite teddy or toy?
