Another new member of the family!

Well would you believe it. 5 years ago it looked like we were never going to have kids. The past 2 years have been a little bit manic but all that's all forgotten when you they make you smile.

Well, last week we added ANOTHER addition to the family. Don't get excited though, this one isn't quite worthy of an FTD video!

Please allow me dear readers to introduce you to the latest member of the FTD crew.....

BB took a shine to Sally while him and The Mrs were walking round a nearly new baby sale. For as little as £4 in a matter if moments we went from parents to grandparents!

We actually contemplated buying BB some sort of doll before LB arrived so he could get used to having somebody smaller than him around that he had to lean to love and take care of. For various reasons that never happened but here we are. Grand parents at the grand old age of....well lets just say we're too young to be grandparents just yet!

Has anybody else introduced a doll into the family to try and transition an older sibling into the new way of life? Did it work?

Would you give your little boy a doll to play with?
If not why not?

Let me know what you think in the comments below!

As always, thanks for reading.


  1. Definitely no issue giving a boy a doll if that's what he wants. Matilda is almost 2 and having seen wifey breastfeeding and rocking Henry now does the same with her teddy and her dolly. So funny to see.

  2. It wouldn't be a problem for me. I often play with my dolly. Sorry I mean my girls dolly.

  3. Ah bless! My brother wouldn't go anywhere without his dolly for years! I'd have no issues at all.
