Living Arrows – 41/52

Here we are again – another week of Living Arrows! If you haven’t joined in before, Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood. The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky.

Each week I share two pictures from our week – one of each of our children – but you can share one or more pictures that capture a moment of childhood. The following week I’ll share my three favourite photos from the week before, linking back to the owner’s blogs.

So if you would like to link up, grab a badge and post around a photo of childhood from the previous week. I look forward to reading your posts and make sure you visit a few of the other posts that have linked up and leave a comment too!

Living Arrows

Here are a few of my favourite photos from last week:


The Mama Story


Toby Goes Bananas


The Inspiration Edit

This week’s photos were a couple more taken at home. This one of LP isn’t perfect but I love it anyway. She has a pair of ‘proper’ glasses without lenses in that she loves to wear to play Mummy. This was during dinner one evening this week.

Last Tuesday was a bit of a traumatic day for Little Man. First, it was school photo day and so he got all dressed up. This photo was taken in the after nursery lull before the real trauma happened – he had to have his preschool booster injections. I don’t think I have ever heard him cry so hard but thankfully he was back to his usual self by bedtime.

As always, I’m really looking forward to reading your posts this week – thanks for taking the time to link up! This really is such a big part of my blogging week and I love that so many people stop by each week.

    Awww, they love ‘being mummy / daddy’ – glad to see the novelty doesn’t wear off! What a brave little chap you have too – I hate the jabs every time, we have our second meningitis one this week, I know he’s going to know exactly what’s coming! Thanks so much for hosting xx

    It’s so lovely when the kids want to be us! LP looks great in those glasses. Poor little man. I hate jabs. Its always very traumatic here too x

    I love that pherhoto of LP. So sweet and those ‘glasses’ look really good on

    Awwww LP looks so grown up in her glasses, Boo keeps asking for some glasses (as my husband and I both weat them) – I never thought to give her some proper ones without the glass, what a great idea!
    I am glad to hear that it wasn’t too long before Little Man was back to his normal self. I found injections so hard to deal with and I am not looking forward to when Boo has to have hers!

    Thanks for featuring my picture this week lovely 🙂 I LOVE that LP plays mummy, that’s so cute! I’m really not looking forward to Toby getting his boosters either – we’ve got a few months to wait yet though I think. I’m glad LM didn’t take too long to get over them.

    I thought those were real glasses on LP for a moment, she really suits them! Aww, poor Little Man. My Athena has just finished getting all of her baby immunisations and that’s bad enough, I imagine it’s harder once they know what’s going on. x

    Aw, hate when they have to go for injections! We had to go for flu shots the other day – not fun! Glad he made a quick recovery! Lovely pics. x

    Poor, poor Little Man! When I took Win for his preschool boosters he hid under the doctors couch and was totally hysterically screaming at her. I had to stop myself from laughing (awful I know) because it was like a switch that he turned on! I hope they haven’t caused him any trouble xx
