Hi folks, I’m writing this on Sunday evening in a cold but sunny town in Northern Italy. The summer
may be over but along with the rest of the Baby and Toddler Awards team, we like to have fun things
to look forward to over the winter (as well as Christmas!) and working with companies who feel as
passionate about giving babies and toddler the best start in life certainly keeps us busy and excited
when our trips outside are limited!
My region, Lombardy, once again is in full lockdown and though it doesn’t feel quite as full-on as it
did back in spring, we’ve celebrated my son’s Frank’s nineth birthday under restrictions which
prevent us from celebrating with friends and family. I thought I would give you an insight into our day so you can see how we made the most of my child's birthday, despite the lockdown restrictions. Maybe it will give you some ideas if you have a child's lockdown birthday coming up.
That’s hasn’t stopped us from having a great weekend though. Friday night was tough, while the kids
were asleep we blew up what seemed like 100 green balloons in order to prepare a green, dinosaur-
jungle themed archway. Before I knew it, a couple of hours had passed although admittedly I’m not
the best or fastest at practical tasks! However, it’s a great pack, and gives the whole living room a
celebratory vibe. When the boys saw it in the morning they couldn’t contain their excitement, both
being dinosaur fanatics. I thought my dinosaur knowledge was pretty good, but I realise now I can
only name ‘the Big 5’)!
