Graduate Fashion Show

I'm a very proud step-mum as Carly had her graduate fashion show tonight. I had been into see the pieces in her exhibition, but it was much better to see her collection modelled on the catwalk. What a talented girl....

The final photo is of her Carly with a model wearing her key piece. She has sold this design to a high street chain already :)

Tonight at bedtime Rebecca asked me why we have blood. What does it do? Why do peoples have it?

I explained it was to keep our hearts beating, and our brains thinking and our bodies healthy. She wanted to know why blood gets out when we cut ourselves and how we heal up again. We found our pulses and listened to each others hearts beat. I asked Rebecca where her heart was, and she pointed. I asked her where her tummy was and she pointed. Thinking I'd go onto "lungs" I did some exaggerated breathing. "What's this called Rebecca?"

She thought for a moment...."Doing a big poo"

There ended the lesson.

I know everything

Rebecca told us today that she knows everything.

Daddy: "OK then. How hot is the sun?"
Rebecca: "very hot"
Daddy: " tall is the tallest mountain?"
Rebecca: "Taller than a giraffe" seems she does know everything....or just has an answer to everything :)
