Why Netball Mums are so special
An order that came through today that got me thinking about how having a sporty mum can be so important for their kids. The customer asked for a gift message to be included with one of our ‘The Netball Court is my happy place’ products. She asked for the note to say:
You are an amazing Momma!
You are doing a fantastic job x
I don't know the context in which this fab mum is doing a wonderful job but I do know that she is a netball player and that in itself is such an inspirational thing to be doing for your kids. We all hear the saying ‘Lead by example’ and what better way to show your kids how important sport is by actually being part of a team. For anyone of you who are part of a netball team, you will know just how awesome it is. It’s so much more than just a sport that keeps you fit. You make wonderful friendships, improve your mental health, have fun and let go of all that tension, anxiety and stress that so easily builds up everyday in our lives.
