Living Arrows 2017 // 4/52

21st January 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.

Wow, how are we on week four already? Time is certainly flying by. This week we enjoyed some messy play with some spaghetti and Kala Chana beans. I started by placing the cooked food in a laundry tub but then quickly realised Dex is FAR too tall to squeeze into one of those tubs. Instead, I placed a plastic table cloth on the floor and poured the spaghetti and beans all over it. Dex was certainly in his element. He ate ALOT of the spaghetti (pretty sure this contributed to him being constipated for a day or so after this) and squished the beans with his fingers. It was a lot of fun and we had a nice cuddly bath together afterwards to clean up.

    That’s a cute photo of him. N was never that keen on messy play, but thankfully he tended to do it at nursery rather than home #livingarrows

    Love a bit of messy play (although the dog would eat all of this if I attempted it at home!). Their faces with spaghetti or noodles is my favourite! He looks so happy here!
