Getting on for over 2 years ago me and the husband found out I we were to have a boy, we were so excited to be having one of each and Moo to be having a baby brother.
With a boy you tend to get better toys (I think anyway!) obviously Thor is a little too young for these at the moment as he doesn’t understand the concept behind it all.
He loves Trains and Cars, he has a lovely wooden work bench, wooden train track, and a knights castle which he will play with for ages, but he will always go back to his sisters toys, the pram, the baby, the Ben and Holly castle, the wooden cooker… not that I have a problem with this at all, its good that he plays with a range of toys.
As its the summer holidays and some days we are at home, Moo is asking for these things so its understandably normal that he is going to play with them all. When she starts school it will be different, I won’t be choosing to get Moo’s toys out to play with I would get Thor’s toys out, or should I still give him an option? should I still let him go on as he is?
Thor is hugely influenced by his big sister, he watches what she watches which is mainly girly TV, (That will change when she goes to school) I have tried now to put different channels on, and now when the husband is off he does put the Turtles or Spiderman on (which Thor does enjoy!) to try and get a wider variety of kids TV on! (also the husband is quite partial to these type of cartoons, it reminds him of his youth!)
As I have no experience in older sibling/younger sibling different sex siblings I wanted to put it out there and ask is it normal? I know it must be! any comments would be much appreciated!
