Today's the day my teddy bear had a picnic

8 years ago

The best laid plans of mums… never go according to plan.

So out came the play cups, plates, rug – everything you need for some good pretending. Oh no… I had made things a bit too realistic and had to go all the way. Pretend food was not in order. How can Teddy eat pretend food Mummy?  

It didn’t matter though. In fact I think the real picnic on the living room floor was great! We fed Teddy real water and real fruit. And he had a real nap afterwards as he was so full!

It wasn’t the same as a picnic in the park. But it put a smile on our faces and fruit in our tummies. What more can you ask for…
