The Queen started walking in January – just after her first birthday. We were all thrilled to watch her take her first wobbly steps into the unknown but as toddling became the norm, I must admit that a part of me missed the immobile days.
Don’t get me wrong, I was super proud that she had reached this stage with no issues but days just became exhausting. Extremely exhausting.
I’m not a crafty mum. I wish I was but I’m not. My strengths lie elsewhere, like making really good pasta sauce or knowing all the words to Disney songs. But no matter, I’m lucky enough to be friends and neighbours with a very crafty mum who had the idea of putting on an Easter Egg hunt for our little darlings. I live in a steading conversion so there are only 14 houses – six of which are occupied by young children – and the communial courtyard was the perfect place.
