I come from a sports mad family, and I don’t say that lightly. All the boys work in the sports field some way or another. So when I met my other half and spent the weekend with my stepson, they were thrilled that I don’t have a problem whatsoever with watching all the sports, as I was used to hearing the football or horse racing in the background as I was growing up.
I’ll admit that I’m not overly keen on the Premier League and even the Euros is pushing it a bit. But the Olympics is another ballgame and I’m always really excited when it starts. In fact just the other day I was reminiscing with a friend at how relunctant I was to get into the 2012 Olympic Games…I was the typical Londoner moaning about lots of people bombarding the city. And then when it started I was the biggest convert! I still can’t believe I didn’t get over myself and get tickets as I was living in London at the time.
So the 2016 Olympics are upon us and I can’t quite believe another 4 years have passed…in our house we’re all super excited for the next couple of weeks to begin. In the spirit of the event, when we were contacted by Tommee Tippee to join in with their Ultra Games, I thought it would be great fun. So we were sent a headband and medal and asked to photograph our little one to take part! We had lots of fun and above all, I just could not believe that Emma kept the sweatband on…there has only been one hat so far that she accepts. For everything else we have a full on meltdown unfortunately.
So how can you get involved? During the Olympics, the Tommee Tippee team will be hosting events on their Facebook page and the winners will be crowned with a Tommee Tippee Ultra Althlete receiving an Ultra Medal, Sweatband and one of the new Ultra Feeding bottles. All you have to do is follow the Facebook feed and upload your photos or videos to be in the running! The categories are:
Crawling | Smiling | Dribbling | Pooping | Peeing | Laughing | Napping | Rolling
As if that wasn’t enough, there’s more! We’ve also got 2 Tommee Tippee Ultra Feeding bottles to give away to a lucky winner over on Bridie By The Sea’s Facebook page. All you have to do, is pop over and give us a like, share the status with your friends and let us know in the comments which category your little one will be competing in – the form is also copied below. Entries will be accepted until 11pm on Sunday 21st August 2016. Good luck!
