Living Arrows 2017: 44/52

30th October 2017

buzzoole codeThis 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, we have been sunning ourselves on the Costa Brava. It’s been lovely so spend so much one-on-one time with Dexter and see all his quirks and how much he is learning everyday. We found out that if I sing the first line of Circle of Life (‘Nants ingonyama bagithi baba’) he tries to copy it! So the kid can speak Swahili, but hasn’t mastered ‘Mama’ yet!

This week’s photo was taken on Fenals beach where Dexter was having his first paddle in the sea. He loved the waves rushing towards him!

    Ahh maybe that’s where you’ve been going wrong! He just wants to speak other languages instead! Looked like you had an absolutely fab time on holiday, nice to get a bit of family time without the distractions of everyday life! #livingarrows

    I am so jealous of your holiday as the weather here has been so cold, grey and foggy! Looks like you had a great time! x
