This being a big sister is work!!  Yesterday Mummy took me and Josie down the hill for about an hour.  It was beautiful and peaceful, with just the sounds of the birds.  We spent time grazing and resting in the filtered sunlight.  When it was time to go back up the top, Josie took off.  Mummy hoped she would follow, but she didn't and raced into the bush.  Mummy couldn't find her anywhere.  She looked over the fence and saw me in the distance, she didn't realise that I was keeping an eye on Josie.  The undergrowth is quite high and Josie is just a little girl.  After about 15 mins of joey sitting, Mummy came walking towards me.  She breathed a sigh of relief as she saw Josie.  Josie got ready to run away again, so I pushed my nose into her backside and pushed her towards home, but she raced off again.  She flew up and down the track having great fun.  I kept an eye on her to make sure she stayed safe.  Then she raced off and came back on a different track and Mummy scooped her up in the bag.  I didn't see her come back and when I couldn't see her anymore I thundered up the track ready to bring her home.  But I couldn't see her anywhere, I looked and stretched out my neck as far as I could, standing on my tip toes.  (I'm pretty big when I do that) but couldn't see her.  Then Mummy walked towards me to show me that Josie was safely in her bag.  Then it was my turn, I danced and flew up and down the track, I love those times.  

Mummy was so happy and proud of me that I got some extra special treats and a huge long cuddle on her lap.
