Living Arrows 7/53 (2018)

You can catch up on last week’s post here : Living Arrows 6/53.

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”

This past week has been very special. Someone turned 2 years old! I know everyone says this but where has the time gone? Here I am 30 weeks pregnant wondering where the last two years have disappeared. I’m sure when you have kids the time gets sucked away from you!

Baby girl’s favourite food is pizza. If you ask her “what would you like for tea?” her reply is nearly always “pizza” So we thought as a birthday lunch treat we would take her to our local Pizza Hut.  When we got there did she want pizza? No! She wanted pasta! I couldn’t help but laugh! Anyway thank god they do pasta. She enjoyed a whole bowl of pasta and more.

Here she is before we went out to Pizza Hut all dressed and ready to go. My older sister sent over the gorgeous Minnie Mouse Cath Kidston backpack to her that she loves to wear all the time now. She loves to stuff it with her PJ Masks figurines.

At tea time it was time for birthday cake. I love to bake so the day before I put my pinny on and made a chocolate fudge cake for her. It’s funny but at 2 years old she didn’t know it was her birthday, but she sure enjoyed opening her presents and the chocolate cake!

    Happy Birthday! Sounds like you had a lovely time. Olivia went through a stage of wanting pizza all the time and has now moved on to sausages. Funny how they go through little stages isn’t it.

    Happy birthday little one ! it sounds like she had a wonderful day. Time certainly seems to fly when you have kids, one minute they are tiny and the next they are leaving for uni it seems. Have a great weekend x #livingarrows
