Living Arrows 14/52

This is our first time joining in the fun with Week 14. I was blog hopping and came across a lovely blog, What The Redhead Said and started browsing through her posts. Came across Living Arrows and this project piqued my interest immediately. A theme celebrating Childhood, why ever not eh? This definitely resonates with what I share on here as a very hands on mummy who enjoys the extraordinary as well as the ordinary moments.

I loved the quote which this project takes its name from,

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” by Kahlil Gibran.

Playground Joy
Week 14 : We usually do quite a lot and this week was extra special in terms of ‘activities’ as we took her to watch a live show at the theater but for our first Living Arrows, I wanted to share something ordinary. Sometimes, enjoying the ordinary is extraordinary and I think these pictures captured at the playground with my mobile truly tells a story on its own.
At 16 months, she is so wild and free. Fearless, curious and filled with so much joy especially when it comes to slides (not the swings). She climbed the frames very slowly as she took in the ‘atmosphere’. The playground gets so busy as the kids are off on holiday and it was a lovely spring day. She is the type to get very distracted by other children. When she finally arrives at the top of the slide, she sits and stays put for quite a few minutes .. I had to keep repeating ‘ Ready, Steady .. Go!’ countless times. There was one occasion which is really quite funny on reflection. A 19 month old boy got impatient and just pushed her down the slides. His mum was rather horrified.
Looking Up
This joy was not ‘carried forward’ to the swings, unfortunately. I always thought that every child would love the swings but this is not the case for her. Panic written all over her wee face whilst telling me, no no no. Oh well, we will try again soon 😉

    Her face on the swings is so funny, and classic of trying something and not quite liking it. It looks like such a lovely trip to the park though – she looks like she will be such an adventurer! Thanks for linking up for the first time x

    It looks like she had a great time at the park – my wee boy never really liked the swings until recently (and he’s now two and a half) and even now he only likes it for a few minutes then wants to get off! #LivingArrows
