You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. – Khalil Gibran

Living Arrows – a portrait a week of my two children.

We have been doing some decorating this weekend – the kiddos new bedroom. I’ll talk about the room in more detail at a later date, needless to say I am excited about this room as the kids are. This is the first room we have decorated since moving into this house three years ago! The kids chose the paint colour and both helped paint the walls, both were actually really good at it. Betsy did the majority of the edging (she liked to stand on the ladder) and Arthur was really good with the roller (as long as he kept to one area. I may have had to repaint an area after he got a bit too enthusiastic).

Linking up with What The Redhead Said


  1. I’m hoping to decorate next month – although i’m not entirely sure about letting my kids help as we’ve not long had new carpets installed! it’ll be a disaster waiting to happen!

  2. This took me back, many years ago, my then youngest son, aged 4, went to help, his painter/ decorator step dad, at work, an hour later, I received a phone call, mummy can you get a bath ready, I’ve fallen into the tray of paint! His clothes had to be thrown away#livingarrows

  3. What great little helpers you have. Just look at Arthurs concentration face you can tell he is taking his job very serious.
