Living Arrows 6/52

“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.

We have had another week of snuffly noses and tickling coughs meaning a good nights sleep has been scarce. Instead of fighting against it we have enjoyed lots of down time, watching lots of TV and snuggling. Thankfully by weekend we were all feeling a little more energetic and back to our normal selves.


Jake doesn’t really ask to draw or paint unless he sees Daisy doing it. He much prefers to play with his robots and dinosaurs. He also loves to squish play-doh and build with his bricks. It’s so nice to watch him sit and concentrate on a task for a few minutes. I really must make more of an effort to encourage some crafty play with him.


Daddy had to work on Sunday so Daisy, Jake and I took a walk to the local park. The park was a little damp but it didn’t stop the kids having a great time. They both went on the swings and Daisy reminded me that she didn’t need pushing anymore. Sometimes it’s the smallest things that make you realise that their childhood is so fleeting.

    N was just the same when younger about arty stuff – just wasn’t interested and I was pleased that he did it at nursery. Now he quite likes it though (damn all that junk modelling in giant size, that comes home from school #livingarrows

    We’ve all had a sickness bug this week and have definitely given in to days at home and TV. Sometimes that is just the best medicine. Love his Thomas Pjs! x
