Living Arrows 32/52 {2018}

“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.


Daisy has been asking if she can do more and more things for herself lately. Her independence is growing rapidly and it’s definitely something I want to encourage. Every day she’s been making her own lunches, supervised by me of course.

At the moment she really enjoy helping me around the house too, unless it’s her own bedroom that needs cleaning. It’s quite nice actually to have a little helper to put away the pots and pans. I will make the most of it as I’m sure it won’t be long before I have to nag her to help me.


Despite looking super cool hanging out in the garden Jake’s not had the best of weeks. He started the week feeling a bit under the weather. On Monday he had a mammoth sleep, he dropped off on the couch at 5pm and didn’t wake until 6.30am the next day. He didn’t really stir when we carried him up to bed. He was a little better the next day and by Wednesday was back to his usual cheeky self.

This weather is playing havoc with his eczema too, he’s so itchy and the creams are just not helping. I’m really hoping he will grow out of it once he’s a bit older.
