Our Little Star - 52 Photo Project - Week 6


I am reposting this as an entry to the #PGRaisingOlympians Celebrate Their Success Linky, sponsored by P&G on Britmums. To be honest I'm not a big one for going overboard on celebrating small children's successes. For instance Little Miss Star gets a great report every year but she's never had anything more than a cuddle and a well done but one week back in February she did do really really well so I baked her the worst cake I have ever baked! She enjoyed it though.

 I do think the whole presents thing is a bit over the top these days. I expect my children to do their best and if they do well they will be praised. When they get their gold Olympic medal I might just give them a present (I am joking but I do admit to a touch of the Tiger Mummy.) Here's my original post - complete with pic of terrible cake:

At one stage this picture was going to be snow (obviously) as even though it hasn't snowed as much here as some places we have been enjoying a bit of the white stuff but you can see some of my snow pictures on here already.

So what is it to be this week? Well apologies for the boasting to anyone who can't stand the 'my kids are so wonderful posts' but Little Miss Star really deserves this weeks post. She won the half term Star award (appropriately enough!) for Most Improved Person in her class at school, she has moved up a swimming group AND she got player of the week at tag rugby #proudmummy (for anyone knows twitter!) and besides you can all have a good laugh at possibly the worst looking cake I have ever made (but it still tasted quite yummy!)

If you would like to see more of my little Photo Project take a peep here.

  3. Oh love it! Love the stars you added too!

  4. That is brilliant! You should be proud and these are special moments!

  5. We were very proud, and she was going to choose another treat but unfortunately her behaviour yesterday was abominable so no more treats!!

  7. You should feel free to boast, I would be proud as punch too if my child made such an achievement. She looks so happy, it's lovely!

  8. Amazing, well done! Every right to enjoy it :)

  9. you can just see how proud she is too.

  10. Wow you have every right to be proud - what a week of achievements!
    I love that she plays tag rugby - my 2 eldest boys play rugby but my Daughter just doesn't want to.

  11. Lovely photo and one to look back on in years to come :)

  12. I am with you, kids, like everybody, should do the best they can and should not need money spent on them because they do. have to laugh though the one time you try you try to reward her it back fires
