Goal! The Importance Of Sports For Kids

Fitness is an important part of our lives. 
There’s no doubt about that at all. 
That goes for our little ones as well. 
Are you finding the time to go to the gym and eat well?

While our kids shouldn’t really be pumping iron at young ages, there’s nothing wrong with a healthy interest in sport. In fact, it should be encouraged!

Competitive sports are a great way for our kids to get fit, let off some steam and make new friends in a team. There are loads of other benefits as well! Competition allows our brains to learn faster, it teaches us to give 100 percent to tasks, it gives us coping mechanisms and most importantly - it is fun!

Giving your kids access to a new community is a good idea. It’s too easy to allow the children to keep pent up in the house. The little ones have bags upon bags of energy to expend and allowing them to expend that energy in a sport isn’t going to hurt. Not only that, but they are going to be exposed to mentors and plenty of new friends. It’s great way to form a lifelong hobby.

What sport thought? Parents.com listed the five best sports for kids and among them are softball, football and walking. 
We’ll leave the jury decision on the latter for now.

We can focus on football. In the UK, you’re just a stone’s throw away from a football club and it’s plastered all over the telly. It’s not hard to foster an interest in football. It’s also a cheap hobby - football boots and gear isn’t even going to touch £100 if you shop in the right places. 
Football is a great team sport that is easy to play and difficult to master, meaning it can be a real long-term hobby for your children. What’s more it is a very rewarding sport that offers a chance at victory every single week - and football trophies by Premier Trophies can show your little baller that he’s on the path to greatness! If you're next to a large football club, there will be opportunities for your kids to get involved with schools over the summer - which is a great way to introduce them to the sport, or build their skills. 
Just make sure that football isn't their only focus in life!


Swimming is also a great sport that you can do rather cheaply, and it’s something you can get involved in as well! A few lengths of a pool with your kids isn’t a bad idea and if your children swim like fishes, they can go far in the sport! 
We wrote earlier about the benefits of swimming and they are quite abundant. It’s a great way for the whole family to stay fit and active - who doesn’t love a splash about?

As important as doing well at a sport may be, it's more important to start and there's no better time than right now.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
