Living Arrows 2017 // 11/52

13th March 2017

This year I am joining in with What the Redhead Said‘s project Living Arrows which is all about celebrating childhood.

 “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

-Kahlil Gibran

Each week I will be posting a picture of Dexter showing what we have been up to or something new he has learnt.

This week saw Dexter’s first time in a supermarket trolley. Living in a flat in the city centre means I regularly order our groceries online with any top up shops happening in the nearby Sainsbury’s Local and Tesco Express. I decided to make the drive to our local Morrison’s for a change (local being across the other side of the city, 30 minutes away) and give Dex the opportunity to have a nosy around. He absolutely adored it. He loved looking at all the old ladies who were taking their time browsing the groceries and yelping at them to grab their attention. We even managed to pick up a few 12-18 month bits from the sale which have been safely tucked away, probably only for a few weeks longer.

    I remember the first time we put Max in a trolly to go shopping, he seemed so grown up.

    He looks so happy! I remember my two both loved going in a trolley and it seemed like such a big thing when they could finally sit by themselves in it x

    Stop getting so big, Dexter James! You should still be in the baba seat! 🙁 Our babies are growing up too fast, Nic xx
