Trains, Toddlers, and Tommee Tippee

My Mum’s OK – for a grown up – but a sociable 2.5 year old (don’t forget the half…) needs to chill with her toddler peeps now and then. 
So I was looking forward to catching up with my fellow anklebiters at the Tommee Tippee party last week. I even sat still long enough for Mum to brush my hair. Trust me – that doesn’t happen very often.

First we went on a train ride and I got to sit on the big girl seat all by myself. Woo hoo! 
Then I noticed there were people sitting around us, and realised they were missing out on my scintillating conversation….
So I yelled ‘Hello… hello… hello!’ through the seats, but the man was on the phone and ignored me didn’t hear me.  
We arrived at Maggie and Rose and I recognised my buddies, Little M and Jed, and their Mummies, Maria from Mummy’s Busy World, and Uju from Babes About Town. 
There were lots of new kids and Mums to meet as well, including Me, The Man, and the Baby, Two Become Four, Mummy Matters, Cafe Bébé, New Mummy, I Heart Muthahood, and Choc Orange.

The Mummies went off to talk about the new Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature hygiene range, which includes sterilising fluid, surface spray, wipes and hand serum. 
They kill 99.9% of germs but don’t have any alcohol or bleach, so they’re much safer around little ones – like my sister, who puts everything in her mouth!  
Instead it uses a new ingredient called Byotrol which was specially invented to invade yucky germs like e-coli and MRSA, and bust them apart. 
Mum asked if I wanted to come along, but I chose to stay behind and play with all the fun stuff. They had finger painting, and lots of PlayDoh to squish.

Then one of the nice ladies beckoned me into the kitchen, where we started making chocolate chip cookies. 
I was pretty darn great at mixing the flour and cocoa powder, if I say so myself…
But when the chocolate chips were added I had to sample them first – for quality control purposes, of course. 
Well, you can never have too much quality control, can you?

But the arts and crafts table was calling, so it was back to work. Mum came back in the room, but I was waaaaaaaaay too busy to talk to her. You can’t interrupt creative genius.
My sister was too young to play with me, but she had lots of people fussing over here, so she was really happy too. 
Before I knew it, the afternoon had flown by, and it was almost time to leave. But before we headed home, I wanted to get a little memento. I’d never had my face painted before, so I sat extra still – even though the brush really tickled!
Then I got a bag of goodies, including a bag of the cookies we’d made, and a special pink balloon that floated up into the sky all by itself!!

By the time we got into the big black taxi I was pretty worn out. 
Then everything started going a bit fuzzy…


Thanks for a lovely day, Tommee Tippee!

The hygiene range is available from Tesco, Asda, and Toys ‘r Us;

    Mom on a Wire: She had such a blast – I don’t think she said more than one word to me all day, she was so busy rushing about, exploring everything. x

    Becky: Poor thing is stuck at home with me when I’m working so it’s nice to see her enjoying herself with the other kids. x
