After a tantrum-filled week last week, I’m happy to report that this week has been the calm after the storm. He’s still had his emotional moments, but he’s been an absolute delight to be around this week as he develops a sense of humour.
Hiding then popping out in a ‘boo!’ Fashion, getting extreme cases of the giggles and my personal favourite.. Playing dead. He’s mastered each one this week and we’ve had a blast.
Despite the weather being rather rough, we’ve been out in the garden preparing our vegetable patch and nursing our seedlings. One thing I’ve vowed is that BB can get dirty. He can make a mess, he can play in the mud, he can make dirt pies.. I won’t have him scared of dirt like I am, and the days we were outside he tested the quality of our vegetable patch quite well!
Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood and its trials & tribulations. 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 each Monday I’m going to share a moment from our week. Over the course of 52 weeks, I’ll have a series of snapshots built up which shows my little boy blossoming!
