Mamas & Papas

Today I’ve taken a MASSIVE step, infact I would call it more than just a step. It was a leap. I went INTO a baby shop. And not just any baby shop, my favourite one. Mamas & Papas.  I loved visiting this baby shop when we were expecting Anabelle, we were in and out all of the time. Everything in it is ridiculously overpriced, but totally beautiful. Anabelle had quite a bit from there. Her pram, car seat, toys and bears.  
Anabelle’s pram was the first thing we bought for her. It is a beautiful pram, a big massive hood. A proper pram. Jon goggled at the price of it, but I didn’t care – it was perfect for our baby, and very me. Black with white polka dots, very sturdy,  a matching car seat. After we found out our baby was a girl we went back and bought the red rose accessory to go with it and a red parasol. I love it. I was so very much looking forward to pushing it around, pushing Anabelle around in it.  
Today her pram and her matching car seat sit unused in her nursery, with sheets over them to stop the sun fading the fabric or dust settling.
Today in Mama’s and Papa’s I saw a little Miss Christmas costume I would’ve loved to have bought for her, a rocking horse that would’ve been perfect for her 1st Birthday or next Christmas, lots of Baby’s 1st Christmas gifts.
I’ll admit I had a cry when I’d finished in the shop. I’d never bought anything in there before for anyone but my own baby. But there was something very particular I wanted to get for a new little baby boy, and this was the only place I knew to go to get it. It hurt me, but I did it, and for that I’m very proud of me.
