Living Arrows 2017 // 15/32

Share this post with your friends!

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.

I think this photo pretty much sums up our week: it’s been disastrous.

I started on Tuesday night with a stomach bug and even as I type now at 5pm the following Monday, it’s still not fully left my system. We had so many plans to celebrate my birthday and see family and they all had to be cancelled. Poor Dex hasn’t been anywhere or done anything all week!

One highlight was the delivery of these beautiful books from The Happy Book Club which kept him occupied for a good ten minutes while I lay down in a corner and tried not to vomit and/or poo everywhere. Luckily the illness hasn’t touched Dex nor my husband – lucky Mummy gets to be ill all by herself which certainly helps! This was one of the only photos I took this week; for a while I thought I’d have to miss a week of Living Arrows *sob*.

I swear to god I’m avoiding soft plays from now on!!!

Oh no, being ill with a baby is the absolute worst. Sorry it ruined your birthday plans too! His little face is a picture though - I really hope you're feeling better soon and can get out and about again with him! #livingarrows
