#LivingArrows – The Little Things 27/52 (2019)

More often than not it’s the little things which matter the most in life, the little things which you enjoy, the little things which you love and the little things which get you through each day…

You know that age-old phrase “the world doesn’t revolve around you”, well that is certainly the case once you’ve had children. My life revolves around these two little things, well they aren’t so little these days but still, they are my World and what matters to them matters to me.

E has a great passion for reading, the very moment that she steps foot through the door from school, she’s desperate to read me her book. Quite often she will read the same book two, three, four or more times to both Paul, I and sometimes herself. I love listening to my little lady read, she has an incredible understanding of vocabulary and such natural flow. It’s hard to believe that she’s only five years old as she reads without any help whatsoever and has such natural rhythm, flow, and expression, she’s amazing.

The Resident Book Worm

#LivingArrows - The Little Things 27/52 (2019)

I’m rather proud to have a book worm for a daughter, she truly is a ‘mini-me’. Her love for art, music, singing, reading and all things pink and fluffy remind me much of myself at her age. What an incredible little girl E is, I couldn’t be a prouder Mum!

My Kind Hearted Kiddo

J seems to have shot up like a beanstalk recently, he may only be ten years old but already he’s almost my height and has somehow outgrown my shoe size. My little man has the kindest heart, he is such a loving, caring, compassionate and understanding little dude. He is so mature for his age, he is so full of facts and worldly wise.

He comes home and straight away goes running to his best buddy, our basset hound Maisy. It’s so lovely to see them curled up cosey together or running around playing chase, fetch or trampoline wars. J means everything to Maisy, she sits and waits for him at the bottom of the stairs each morning and each night, she knows precisely where his bedroom is and given the chance she shoots up to join him for a cuddle.

He has such a passion for animals, that and cartoons. J has his heart set on becoming a comic artist, graphic designer or game developer when he’s older and all of his drawings so far seem to include his beloved basset, which is incredibly sweet. The bond between the basset and our boy is unbreakable and I am so pleased that he has Maisy in his life.

I love watching both J & E develop and grow into their own people, they each have their own likes, dislikes, and passions in life, my passion is to watch and to help them along as they grow and develop into two incredible people, both of which I couldn’t be prouder of.

Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
