I walked to school

Whilst lots of boys and girls may be going back to school today, for Aaron it's a little different.

First of all he is only two years old.

Secondly his nursery only closed for 2 weeks during the summer, but he is only there Tuesdays Wednesdays and Thursdays anyhow.

Today he insisted on walking to "school".

It is the FIRST TIME I have dared leave the house without the buggy.

We have had our trusty reins since Christmas, but as Aaron had previously refused to wear them, they were not used and I always opted for the buggy despite him being a strong walker and runner.

Well, when we went to Brighton we could only possibly do it with reins as there would be a bus, tube and train, (plus the pier & beach) to cope with there and back.  Safety was paramount.  Because his precious cousin (only 2 boys out of 6 cousins) was holding the reins, it was a positive experience for him and he is now happy to use them, and even happy now if Mum is holding them.  What a result and what a step forward (forgive the pun).

So I'll share some pics with you. The reins we use are here.  I paid full price for them in Babies R Us, in store.  No discount - this is NOT a sponsored post.

The reins are invaluable to me, as the risk of him running in the road is just too high.
