Be A Good Sport & Let Them Become A Champion

Being active and playing sports is a crucial part of your child’s progress. It’s good to install exercise as part of a daily routine from a very young age. Children should be physically active every single day. This may seem obvious, but it’s easier as they get older to leave them to their own devices. Unfortunately, in the digital world that we live in this, could mean the spend a lot of their time in the front of a screen. A cell phone is never far from a teenagers hand, so it’s only fair that you set the right example. Team sports and fitness will encourage good habits and help keep them healthy. It’s an integral part of their growing up and can be an excellent way to get them socializing and making friends. There are so many different aspects to playing sports. Even when they’re feeling dubious about joining in, you need to encourage them.

Test and try

You and your child might end up trying ten different extracurricular activities before they fall on something that they like to do. It’s important that you don’t enforce your views on what they should be doing too forcefully. Just because you dreamed of being a ballerina doesn’t mean that they should be one! Try to let everything happen as naturally and don’t discard something because it’s not your choice. Let them be creative and encourage them. Learning to play a new sport is a good way for a child to find out a little more about themselves. It’s also an excellent way for you to get to know them too!

What are the Benefits of Online Shopping?

Do you love to shop online?

Now that Christmas is only a few weeks away it’s time to start thing about your Christmas shopping. That’s if you like to be organised. I know people that are completely last minute shoppers and wonder why there is nothing left that they want! I do have a Women’s and Babie’s & Kid’s gift guides for the slightly different gifts if you are a bit stuck on ideas.

I’m a super organised person, or at least I like to think so, so I’ve been thinking about Christmas presents for a while now. With it being baby girl’s first Christmas I’m super excited!

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Playmat Review 

I was a huge Mickey Mouse fan as a kid. Since having baby girl we have been watching the Disney Jr channel quite a lot which shows the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cartoons. I just love it as much as she does. We both dance along to the ‘Hot Dog’ song much to my husbands amusement!

So when we were given the choice of kids playmats to try out from Tatamiz we chose the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse design.

We love the bright fun colours of the playmat. The picture quality is superb of all the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse characters. We of course love Minnie. Who is your favourite Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Character?

New Mum Stories: The Newby Tribe

Hello, welcome back to this week’s New Mum Stories. I am delighted to share with you Cherry from over at The Newby Tribe ‘s New Mum Story. This is a wonderful story with a difference.

Over To You Cherry…

My story of being a new mum is a little different from most. Some of it is the same – we experienced the same anxieties, the same sleepless nights wondering what life would be like when it was no longer the two of us, the same mad shopping sprees to make sure that the bedroom was sorted and we read hundreds upon hundreds of books and articles all of which, I have since decided, are put out to make you feel more worried than ever before about this huge undertaking you are embarking on! The difference is, when I became a new mum, I skipped the birth, the feeding, the weaning, the potty training, the napping, the learning to walk and learning to talk stages and headed straight for the terrible threes and school runs!
