Each day since the Olympics started my husband has spent a increasingly worrying amount of time researching sports in which our daughter could medal (she’s eight months old BTW).
It’s now come to my attention that a slightly deflated rugby ball with pieces of park stuck to it has made it into the toy pile (we’re not civilised enough for a toy box). The ball also comes with a fascinating commentary from said husband comprising rather interesting women’s rugby facts (I’m not sure he cares it’s not currently an Olympic sport) which I pretend to listen to. Intently.
It only encourages him further that the ball is completely mystifying to her, which he has of course taken as a sign she is (and I quote) ‘a natural’.
My advice to you, if you find the Olympics has had a similar effect on male members of your family, is to simply ride it out. By Sunday it’ll be over and I expect him to get back to applying to Universities for her…
In separate news, Sophie the Giraffe has been involved in rugby ball related incident but is expected to make a full recovery.
Aww so cute. xReply
Thanks 😉 xReply
I love the fact that she must be a natural! Priceless 🙂Reply
Haha! Yes – just have to humour the men when it comes to stuff like this… he'll be enrolling her in rugby academy before she can walk! 🙂 xReply
hee hee, yes, he'll forget about it all until the next big sporting event. I think tennis is where the money is for women sportwise though and there's definitely an opening for a british champion 🙂Reply
Haha! He'll probably read this and head out now for some balls and a racket… Lol x thanks 4 reading xxx :)))Reply
Arr so sweet,I cant remember the things we planned for our babies but we never thought of running until my oldest was 11 now they love it..Reply

Hi there – glad it tickled u! I think all men share that trait lol x Flashback Friday is a great linky – I'll be back (no pun intended…) tee hee xxxReply
Ha ha! My husband isn't like that but my mother-in-law is. My sons can do anything and she will immediately announce that they will be a hairdresser/chef/artist/footballer/mechanic when they are older because they are clearly a natural at it.
I love the way you've written your post.
Thank you for linking up to Flashback Friday.Reply
