Sports Day - Lacking the Competitive Gene
She does have a sense of humor
Big son phoned to say I should fetch my grandson a little later this morning as they were all at my granddaughter's Sports Day. She has just turned 5, so you can imagine the scene. Big son was quick to tell me he won the Father's Race (he told me twice in ten minutes) but it was a different story for his daughter. She came last in all her races especially one -the Pyjama Race, in which she came extremely last - not having in fact started. She was the first to get the pyjamas on but then spent so long straightening the seams, replacing her aliceband and trying to her hair back into shape that the race was over before she even started. Not in the least bothered, she quite enjoyed the laughter of the spectators.
