Alfie has always been a HUGE Daddy’s boy. Despite carrying him for 10 months, going through 50 hours of labour plus having my stomach cut open, and then being his only source of food for the first 6 months of his life (and for another 9 months after that!), Daddy has always been golden boy in Alfie’s eyes. Why is it that some kids seem to prefer one parent to another?
Is it because Daddy is more fun? I’m not sure, as I’m pretty sure Daddy is stricter than Mummy most of the time!
Is it because he spends more time with Daddy? He has always done nursery pick ups, and they get a couple of hours a day just the two of them before I get home from work. It’s a bit less since we moved and they have to wait for my train to get in, but they still get a bit more one on one time together.
Is it because being boys they have more in common? Hmm, no I don’t think it’s that, Alfie is only a toddler after all and I’m not sure he yet has “common” interests!
That’s not to say that Alfie doesn’t love his Mummy – when he’s upset or scared, nothing solves the problem like a Mummy cuddle which are definitely better than Daddy cuddles!
It does mean though that when we are out and about, Alfie is more than happy to run off and have fun with Daddy, while Mummy watches and takes lots of photos! Being pregnant, this is quite welcome as I get worn out fairly quickly so it’s much nicer for me to watch them having fun. But with all this running around, it means Daddy has to choose clothes that are practical for climbing around the playground, running around the farm, going down inflatable slides, and pushing Alfie around on his bike!
We were recently lucky enough to be sent some clothes from Jacamo for Craig to try out, and I have to say they were so lovely! He was very impressed with how comfy they were, and how easy it was to still run around after Alfie without worrying about restrictive clothing – and the bonus was they look great too!
The trousers were a great fit – something Craig often struggles with is getting trousers to fit on his legs and his waist (thanks to his rugby player thighs!) but these were perfect.
The top was also a brilliant fit – long enough to cover his back without constantly riding up, but not so big that it made him look massive. Craig said the whole outfit was very flattering and he felt good in it. It has also washed really well!
So all in all, we’ve been very impressed with these clothes from Jacamo and would definitely shop here again in the future.
Now, with Alfie being such a Daddy’s boy, all I need to do is find him some matching items for some really cute twinning opportunities!
