Living Arrows 12/52

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gibran.

Every Monday for the rest of this year I will share with you two photo’s of my children that celebrate their childhood.

Last week was a tough one all round. The children are poorly yet again, Daisy has an ear infection and Jake has a nasty snotty cold. I really am fed up of all these illnesses plaugeing us, it’s so hard to stay positive sometimes. Stress levels have been through the roof and everyone has been grumpy.

I know there will always be days and weeks like this, it’s part and parcel of life. I suppose all we can do is just keep rolling with it.


Jake has just started asking me for specific food at mealtimes. He’s been happily reeling off a list of things he likes and things he doesn’t. Although he’s full of a cold he’s had one hell of an appetite this week. He’s not usually a great eater but he’s wolfed his food down this week even asking for seconds. I’m fully expecting a sudden growth spurt in the next few weeks.

Boiled egg and soldiers are a firm favourite in our house.


We spent all day in our pyjamas on Sunday, after the stressful week we’ve had it was called for. Daisy wanted to make some cupcakes for her packed lunch on Monday. We had a box of those quick and easy, add an egg types in the cupboard thankfully. She’s still taking antibiotics for an ear infection but I’m hoping we’ve seen the back of being poorly for a while.

    It’s good your son still has an appetite and you were able to find some energy to bake too! Hope you all feel better soon!

    Ooh boiled egg and soldiers. The only time I did that for N he looked at me like I was strange telling him to dip he toast. #livingarrows

    I think sometimes you really just need a PJ day. I hope they’re both feeling a bit better now x
