I was really nervous about attending any baby groups with Roo. I find it difficult to make mum friends and worried that I’d always be sat in the corner by myself. But I’m really glad that we gave Baby Sensory a try because looking back now I have to admit that I loved it as much as she did!
Baby Sensory is a learning and sensory development class for babies from birth to 13 months. It’s designed to stimulate, educate and provide precious memories during the all-important first year of life.
We attended Baby Sensory classes in Southampton from three to 13 months and it became a weekly highlight for me and Roo. This is just a little highlight of what we loved about it.
From the very first moment we said hello to the sun,
To the very last time we waved goodbye to everyone,
We’ve loved every minute. We’ve really had a blast.
We just can’t believe that this year has gone so fast!
We’re really glad that we gave Baby Sensory a try.
And we were really sad when it was time to say goodbye.
When Roo fell asleep through all of the first class,
I thought it might not be right for us – that we should pass.
But I’m glad we decided to go back the very next week
Because it was worth it for every giggle and squeak.
Each week has a different theme for you to enjoy
So much to see and do for any girl or boy.
We loved the puppet shows and the pretty lights,
The music, the bubbles and all the little delights.
The class leaders were fantastic and made me feel at ease,
Something that isn’t always possible with my anxieties.
Most of all we loved all of the friends that we made,
Friendships built naturally whilst our babies played.
We paid termly so it was an upfront cost,
But I fear without the classes I would have been a little lost.
It’s easy to feel down or lonely when you’re a new mum
But having somewhere fun to go made me feel less glum.
Thank you Baby Sensory for being a special part of our first year.
We’ve made friends and memories that we’ll always hold dear.
This is not an advert, just a thank you from a grateful mum who was kept sane by the weekly classes and excuse to leave the house. An extract of this rhyme was originally shared on Facebook when our classes finished last year.
