He came 4th and was happy *this mother breathes a sigh of relief*. He could have possibly even come higher if the teachers supervised properly and stoppped the cheeky ones from cutting the course. Always a hard thing to see when your kid does the right thing. Still, that's life - hey! Well done bub, let's chill out until the next life hurdle comes along hopefully not this week.
UPDATE: eekkk! Mother from hell alert! Back to the "notorious cheeky cheater". My blase attitude from this afternoon has gone. Although we are not talking about sheep stations here I realise, and everyone was rewarded with ribbons as long as you completed the race - all good until ...... Hugh comes home this afternoon and says the three "winners" (aka cheater) are going to be commended and presented at school assembly with medals tomorrow.... *sigh* What to do ... a) sit back and say "well that is life Hugh, let it go" ... or b) take a stand and say "cheating should not be rewarded on this level". Medal or not, it's about sending the right message!
What would you do?
