Tayla competed in her first cross country yesterday. She did really well getting 5Th she received a participation ribbon for her efforts. She was quite chuffed with herself. I was very proud of her she got puffed about half way around as she had a stitch but then recovered and finished with a flourish.

This is my LO for the March Challenge on Scrapping Chicks it was a white and one challenge, the colour obviously was Red. I had been wanting to try these flowers for a while and this was a good opportunity, I like they way they turned out. The pic is of my niece at my wedding she is now 11 I think, she was such a good girl all day although the dress was no longer white at the end of the day, but kids will be kids.

Yesterday afternoon I was sitting outside with the girls and I began to send a text message to my MIL, it took me all of a minute I suppose, I then turn around to find my 10 month old daughter sitting in my water feature throwing rocks out of it..........(she was having a great time but) OMG I did not even hear her get in and I was only 1 metre away. She could have drowned and I would not have heard or seen it until it was too late. I swear my attention was only off her for about 45 seconds. So needless to say the feature will be covered with wire mesh asap. Took me a good couple of hours to calm the nerves.

What you may ask???? I have forgotten to take something to school, I knew it was just a matter of time before I forgot to take something and disappointed my daughter. Last Thursday I forgot Taylas library bag.... yep she could not lend another book because she had not returned the one from the previous week. Apparently she was devastated and its all my fault. I have now set an alarm on my mobile to remind me on Thursdays to put it in and promised that I will try my hardest never to do it again. Hopefully she will forgive me.
On another note about school, Tayla has a bully at school, she is not hassled all the time, but when she is it makes me feel sick to my stomach, as being a nerd at school myself I know a bit about how it feels to be the brunt of a bully. What I do not know is how to handle it, any suggestions people? Tayla is not the kind of kid to retaliate, so not quite sure how to deal with it other than to tell her teacher.
