Competitive Parents Train Up for School Sports Day

Sports Day at my school was always slightly dreaded by us teachers, with the pushy parents rather too enthusiastically encouraging little Cody or Spencer from the sidelines, the worst of them even attempting to run alongside as we did the bean bag relay or whatever. But worse still was the parents' race. Arguments about technique, possible reasons for disqualification, and fierce competitiveness all being rife. A nightmare! One particular dad, Jean-Paul, a keen runner, was the worst of the lot. Training for weeks beforehand, honing his technique, and taking it all oh so seriously. Woe betide if he didn't win, the full Gallic temper would come to the fore!

Review: Bright Starts Bounce Bounce Baby

For the past few weeks Tatiana has been trying out the Bright Starts Bounce Bounce Baby, and she loves it!  With a spinning seat, lots of toys and activities and a bounce pad (the orange bit in the picture below), she can find endless things to do and boing away to her heart's content.  For a not yet walking baby, this sense of freedom and movement is just perfect.

Playmobil Suite at The Waldorf #PLAYMOBILsuite #Playmobil40th

Lara and Sophia adore staying in hotels and are constantly asking when our next trip might be, but they do always feel the need to take a selection of toys with them.  But, if we were lucky enough to be staying at The Waldorf over the next 40 nights we wouldn't need to - toys are supplied!  And better still, they're our number one choice - Playmobil!!

Parenting Prompt

Make the Ordinary Come Alive

Do not ask your children
to strive for extraordinary lives.
Such striving may seem admirable,
but it is a way of foolishness.

Help them instead to find the wonder
and the marvel of an ordinary life.
Show them the joy of tasting
tomatoes, apples and pears.
