Kingsley: Playdate

Saturday 28th June 2014

I have read that play is crucial for a baby’s social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. It’s their way of learning about the body they are attached to and the world around them, and they’ll use all five senses to do it-play, that is- especially in the first year.

With that in mind (and a great need to meet up with my Dubai mummy friends) I invited baby Harrison over, along with his mum Kate, for a playdate. The six month old and a five month old barely clocked one another but they did once or twice attempt to scooch closer and touch. Don’t know whether the babies enjoyed the playdate buy I can certainly vouch for the parents!

Now pass me my wine…
