Living Arrows – 3/52 {2018}

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

Living Arrows

Each week I link up with Living Arrows, a linky hosted by Donna from What The Redhead Said.  As Donna explains the project takes its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran called On Children.

So every week I’ll be posting a photo of Isla from the last week that captures a moment of childhood. 

Isla has recently decided that she wants to try to dress herself a lot of the time. This can make getting ready in the morning a very, VERY long process! Most of the time it is super cute, as you watch her trying to fit both legs into one trouser leg, or for some reason tries to put her tights on her head! But on the mornings we needs to be out the house quickly it is infuriating as she refuses to let me help!

It’s at these times that a little bit of bribery can help. Good parenting right there!

This weeks Living Arrows photo is of Isla being her usual daft self. She is wearing her Daddy’s pyjama trousers! Sometimes I really wish I knew what was going through her head. What goes through her head when she decides it’s a good idea to put them on? She’s a funny one!

Each day Isla’s personality is developing more and more, and it is so wonderful to watch….apart from when the tantrums kick in!
