When my father asked what he could get us for the new baby, I knew exactly what I wanted – a swing. I had found in the short time I had been spending with this little one it was difficult to be holding her all the time. As much as I loved just holding her and staring at her, sometimes I needed to eat. We had a vibrating chair but she did not like that much at all, so I thought maybe a swing was the way to go.
I chose the Fisher-Price My Little Lamb swing (now it’s bunnies instead of lambs, but still soft and adorable). I got it home, got it set up, and both the baby and I instantly fell in love.
She love the swinging motion, she loved the music, the mirror, the mobile, the softness. Some days it was the only place she would sleep. That swing was where she would happily sit when my husband and I had dinner together and re-connected when he got home from work.
When she got too big for that swing I think I cried. It was such a wonderful thing, to have her happy and comfortable when I needed a break. I am glad to say that we passed that swing on to another family so that another baby could be soothed for a few months.
I was not at all surprised that this swing was one of the Fisher-Price products that made their moms ‘must-have’ list. Nor was I surprised to see three of their Laugh and Learn products on that list. The Laugh and Learn Busy Friends musical table was a favourite when she started standing, and the kitchen was another popular one, but one of the toys she’s had the longest is the Laugh and Learn Say Please Tea Set.
My daughter loves a good tea party. She loves pouring the tea and serving cakes, and I love that the teapot helps remind her to use her manners.
