“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
This is my first Living Arrows blog post. As it’s what I started my blog up for, to remind myself of how important my time is with my children, to remember it and document it, I feel it fits well in my blog for me to take part and share mine and other’s experiences of our children, our Living Arrows.
I want to share with you all, the importance of laughter and how everyone needs it in their life. Us and our children. The last few weeks I have felt a little down and wobbly, but what I have held onto is that my family; husband, 2 children and my dog, never fail to make me laugh or smile everyday. These moments that they give me, are what I hold onto, to stop me falling down further and hopefully my children will have fond memories of our fun and laugh about them in the future.
So this week I’m sharing with you the pictures of moments that have made us laugh.
H and E trying out our homemade version of ‘Speak Out’. This game has sold out everywhere, and is rated at 16 years + so, never being one to miss out on a chance for us to have a giggle, I decided to make our own version by buying some dentistry mouth retractors of off Amazon and then getting them to repeat nursery rhymes and tongue twisters. It was so worth the £2.43 spent. http://amzn.to/2e7ju63
My second photo is of my boy, our dog. Yes I know he’s not a child, but he is part of my childrens childhood and he contributes to our family fun and laughter. In this picture I had just been for a run with him and he usually rides in the passenger foot well as he doesn’t like the car journey much and I can see he feels much calmer and safer there. So, I put him in the passenger foot well and walked around the car to the driver’s side. By the time I got in the car, I looked in the rearview mirror and see him sitting there. I swear he thinks he is human sometimes. He seemed quite happy there so I chauffeured him home. I needed to take this picture to show the girls, as I wasn’t sure if I could really explain it to them. They found it as funny as I did.
My family, crazy, funny, silly and happy, I love them to bits.
