Living Arrows 6/53 (2018)

You can catch up on last week’s post here : Living Arrows 5/53.

The idea behind Living Arrows is to celebrate childhood. It’s name is taken from a poem by Kahlil Gibran,

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


Each week seems to be getting here closer all the time! Here I am at 29 weeks pregnant and wondering how an earth am I going to cope with a newborn an active 2 year old in 10 weeks time! This past week we have had many more new words being added to the vocabulary list.  “Cake” being on of them and her surname “Bustin” Baby girl cannot quite say her first name yet but will pick up her pretend phone and have a conversation with her dad on it and say I’m …… Bustin, are you ok? yes, bye! It’s fascinating to watch her!

On Monday it was extremely cold outside, but that didn’t stop her coming up to me with her coat, hat on, wellies and her waterproof dungarees dragging me to the back door saying “out mumma”

So we spent half an hour outside in near freezing temperatures playing with her retro Little Tikes car. I say Retro as it was her cousins when they were small, so about 20 years old!

    You know, somehow the newborn and toddler thing just works. You manage and get through – and it’s all ok. Although I know what a daunting prospect that must be right now. That car is ace! x

    We love our Little Tikes car. Bought it when my eldest was 1 and they still play with it now. Definitely value for money! #LivingArrows
