Living Arrows – 5/52 {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. 

Please, please excuse the absolute tip in the background of this photo! What’s that phrase? “Please excuse the mess, my child is making memories”. Well she certainly is making a mess at least!

Apologies for the lateness of this post too, I was ill for a few days, and only now feel well enough, and have had the chance to sit down to write this post.

Living Arrows - 5/52 {2018}

Isla used to be such an amazing eater. She would eat pretty much anything you put in front on her. It was great. Though now she has become quite fussy. She will now only eat either Nutella or peanut butter on sandwiches. If you give her anything else she will have an absolute meltdown. It drives me mad sometimes!

She has somehow developed a strange habit now though, that whenever she has decided she has finished eating her sandwiches (where the Nutella or peanut butter have been scraped off and eaten separately to the bread!!) she will pass it to me and say “bird!” And that’s it, she will down right refuse to eat anymore of it, and it has to be thrown out for the birds to eat. I have got no idea where this came from!!

Even though she is a fussy eater at the moment, she does have some rather peculiar tastes. On Sunday night her food of choice was white bait, and capers straight out of the jar!

Has your little one ever had weird food habits?

    Oh I know that phase well. For us it was cheese sandwiches – they’d eat all the cheese and none of the bread!! So frustrating but it does pass, I promise! x
