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.
Oh, how I love that photo above. It shows the kids exactly how they are at this moment – Betsy happy and open (that’s a smile and not a grimace, honest) with Arthur by her side looking up adoringly at her. And yes, always while stuffing snacks into his face.
These guys have had a really good Easter holiday. We have had playdates, Easter egg hunts, walks in woods and visits from grandparents. Arthur has benefited hugely with having Betsy with him all the time and the various playdates we’ve been too, it’s another reminder we need to sort out a nursery place for him fast, he’s really missing the social interaction he doesn’t get while I’m at work. While there have been squabbles, usually because one of them is frustrated that he other isn’t playing the way they think the other should, and I’m really hoping that the phase where Arthur just screams at the top of his lungs when he’s cross will end soon (PLEASE let it be a phase…), on the whole they have enjoyed each other’s company.
The first things Arthur says when he wakes from a nap at the moment is “where’s Betsy?” and Boo currently does a big, dramatic “MY LITTLE BABY BRUVVA” (There are times when her Enfield accent is really strong) whenever Arthur falls over or bangs himself. They are always keeping an eye out for each other and I hope that ever ends.
Linking up with What The Redhead Said AND taking part in this month’s Sibling’s Project too!
