Get the RX1. It sounds like you think it is the better choice for all but sport shots and for those you don't need some big expensive kit with you all the rest of the time. Get the RX1 and then get something like the RX100 or maybe the Sony a77 with Tamron 70-300 and take that with you when you know you will need zoom like at a sporting event. Still cheaper then the 5D3 and lenses.

80%+ of your kid shots will be best served with the RX1 so buy the highest quality camera for that 80% and get something not top of the line for the rest. After all most of those sports shots will probably be in daylight right? So you don't need the best of the best to capture great stuff there.
