Today was daughter's last Sports Day.
I can say that with some confidence because in the Juniors all pupils take part in Sports Day, but from next year, in the Seniors, they have to be chosen to take part in an event, and as daughter is blessed with my sporting genes, she will be a spectator for the next seven years.
Whilst attending my last ever Sports Day as a mum I heard other, disgruntled, competitive mums complaining about the fact that the children are put into ability groups to take part in events, so those who are good at sports don't always get medals, whilst lesser sporty children do.
At the end of the day daughter looked like this:
That's right, six gold medals!!!
I have never seen her so pleased or proud of herself.
She even wanted to keep her t-shirt on until daddy came home so that she could show him.
That's why they are in ability groups, competitive mums!!
