Our First Rugbytots Lesson

Little O is obsessed with balls! And balloons! We have far too many toys scattered around the house but he will choose a balloon or ball over all of them. As soon as his daddy gets in from work he races over with a balloon to play kick or catch. So when a friend told me her little boy went to a class called Rugbytots, it seemed perfect for O. The classes start from aged 2, and as his Christmas present we booked him in for a block of sessions. Usually hubby isn’t really that keen on attending any baby/toddler…

Love The Little Things #2

Back to reality this week as the Christmas break is well and truly over.  On the plus side, here are a few of the things I have been up to this week. Read I used to love reading a good book, but really struggling to find the time at the minute. What I have read this week is my little boys Welcome To The Toddler Room guide. He’s just started his initial visits this week so feeling a bit emotional that he’s going into the big kids room. I’m sure the new staff will be lovely but the ones in his tweenie…
