Living Arrows {2018} 14/53

Every week I join in with Living Arrows, a blog linky run by Donna at What the Redhead Said. The name Living Arrows comes from a poem by Kahlil Gibran; “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”, and each Monday I share a photo of M and a bit about what we’ve been up to the previous week.

Last week the lurgy finally left the Pondering household and we were able to get out and about a bit more. I’m amazed at how much better I feel after this C-section compared to the last. However, I’m still aware that I shouldn’t be exercising or lifting too much, so I’m trying to take things slowly. That means finding places to go that don’t involve too much walking.

On Thursday we decided to take our first visit to Tots Town. Tots Town is a small-world role play playground in a barn just outside Norwich. It has different zones like a shoe shop, cafe, supermarket and beauty salon where children can dress up and play to their heart’s content. M was particularly taken with the ‘laptop’ in the doctor’s surgery!

Thursday was also the day that B turned two weeks old, so I’ve included this snap of her with her timeline card. It feels like two weeks has come around so quickly! I guess that’s because we were in hospital for the first whole week of her life, so we haven’t really been home that long as a four really. It definitely already feels like we’ve always had B in our lives, though!

We kind of let Easter weekend pass us by this year, although we did meet up with family yesterday so that B could meet some of her cousins and her aunt and uncle. I think they were quite taken with her, and who can blame them?!

    Gorgeous! Love those cards, they’re so ideal as when looking back it isn’t so easy to remember the exact age!

      I love them too, we had a different set with M and it’s been really useful for me to scroll back through my photos and see how old she was when we did various things with her, as we’re now trying to remember what it was all like in the early days!

      It was really good fun and I think it would have been even better if we’d gone during school hours so there were only smaller children there.

    Those two weeks have gone so fast. I’m so glad you’re finding this c-section better than last time – and Tots Town looks great! x

      It’s a completely different experience this time around, for which I am very grateful! x

      It’s great but we’ll definitely go in school hours in future to avoid being there at the same time as bigger children.

    Tots Town looks like great fun – I wish there was something like that near us! And two weeks already – it seems like she was just born! #LivingArrows

      I know, time is flying! Tots Town is a great idea, but there were some bigger children there that dominated a bit – we’ll go during school hours next time!
