I have been thinking of late of enhancing Master O’s active pursuits. Our “gym and swim” sessions have become a regular and very popular feature of this year, starting at Leichhardt Park Aquatic Centre and more recently moving to Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre so that we can add in some step and weights class action.

With heated swimming pools, all of this is set continue for 2012. But what’s next? I’m thinking about both dancing and soccer – am sure he would love both/either since has energy to burn and loves to mimic my moves. At Miss E’s dance concert in Cairns in September this year he was up out of his seat, dashing in front of the stage and trying to join in.

On the dancing side I’ve found that Newtown Dance Academy has “Tiny Tot” classes for children aged 2 to under 5 years. Quite surprising really since most dance schools seem to start everything from around 3-4 years of age.

We’ll explore all in the new year.
