Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood. The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” so as usual I am linking up with the lovely Donna at What the Redhead Said for a weekly dose of what we have been up to.
This little one has taken to nursery like a duck to water! Her first attempt at her old school in May was a bit of a nightmare to say the least, she would scream and had to be literally peeled off me, it was genuinely heartbreaking to leave her each day. She would make herself sick through the sheer amount of tears and begging not to go.
Since we moved she has started at the same school as her big sister, we are into the second week and she loves it! I still get the half asleep quote of ‘me not go to nursery’ first thing on a morning but by half past 8 she is ready and raring to go. This morning she was off and unfastening her coat before she was even in the doors, I had to ask for a kiss!
As much as I love that she is enjoying nursery it makes me sad that my last baby is spreading her wings. I come home to an empty house, there is no one running round my ankles, no squeals of which cartoons to watch or games to play, the rooms are empty and I am SO not use to the quiet after over 20 years of having at least one little one around…..however there are hot cups of coffee, tidy rooms that stay tidy for more than 5 minutes and trips to the toilet by myself.
Silver linings n’ all that!
