Living Arrows 14/52

“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.

I’m pleased to report that last week was a much better week for us all. Although, I’m not quite sure where on earth that week went.

I’ve noticed a lot of people mention that their kids have finished school for the Easter holidays, Daisy has almost two weeks left ! I must admit I’m slightly jealous, I love the slower pace of life that half term brings, I of course don’t love the inevitable sibling squabbles.

The weather forecast is promising some sunshine this coming week which s great news. I might even let the kids break out the shorts and t-shirts.


The thing that lots of us parents dread has finally happened, Jake has totally dropped his afternoon nap ! I know I was probably a bit spoilt that he’s had one up until now. I tend to get very tired in the afternoon so instead of a nap I’m insisting on some quiet time. It gives both Jake and I a chance to recharge our batteries. Some days we read books but sometimes I let Jake watch something on my iPad. It gives him the down time he needs and me a little time to rest.


I can’t claim this picture as my own but it’s my favourite one of Daisy from this week. This lucky little girl was treated to a Friday night sleepover and a breakfast with Belle and The Beast the next day. My lovely cousin came to collect Daisy after school on Friday. On Saturday she surprised her with a visit to a Beauty and The Beast themed breakfast at a local restaurant. There were games, songs and stories and Daisy even got to dance with the beast himself.

  1. Oh that Beauty and the Beast event sounds amazing! Troy stopped napping when Athena started school – he had just turned two and I could have cried. I feel your pain! x

  2. Oh no! The dreaded end of the afternoon nap! I felt lost when J stopped hers! Hampshire doesn’t break up until this Friday and it really has been weird seeing everyone’s posts about school holidays #LivingArrows
