Our little man has always been an energetic little bean. As soon as he started walking at 8 months he’s wanted to move constantly. We call him our little hummingbird as he doesn’t seem to stay still, even when sleeping.
Now that M is at school we have realised he needs a hobby to burn off all the excess energy he is lucky to have. Even with trips to the park and time spent scooting he still bounces around all day long. We didn’t want to put him into any clubs he wouldn’t be keen on as we didn’t want to put him off clubs overall. So we suggested several club ideas to M and have given him a few months to think about what he wanted to do.
His choice was gymnastics, which we all think would be a perfect hobby for him. He’s always had good strength, it will teach him how to safely tumble, rather than the very crazed way he has of tumbling and it will help use up some of his endless energy.
We’re not sure how he will get on to begin with as he is rather shy, but hopefully it will help him with his confidence too. Since joining the waiting list he’s also expressed an interest in football club, so we could have a gym loving footballer in the future. But whatever he settles on, we will always be supportive and possibly be those embarrassing mums on the sidelines waving and cheering him on.
