Its only appropriate that this weeks sign is ‘To Run’. Last week Bruiser took part in his Sports Day with his friends at nursery. They had been practicing for weeks. I had been preparing Bruiser at home, reminding him of the signs for ‘Run’ ‘Jump‘ ‘Kick’ and ‘Yellow’ (he was on the yellow team) and he was using them. He was very excited.
Everything looked in doubt for him though on the night before. On his way home from collecting his brother from school he came off his scooter and landed face first on the floor, an hour later in A&E we found out he’d broke his nose 😦
Being the Brusier that he is though he wasnt about to let that get in the way! He took part in all the races. He really caught me by surprise when he knew what to do for each of the events too. He participated in the wheel barrow race, beanbag throwing, running, penalty shoot out, his favorite the obstacle course and the race he won, the beanbag on head race!
He was brilliant. #proudmummy moment!
