Welcome to this weeks edition of #LivingArrows, a weekly post in which I share a snap or two of my little ones. I love participating in this linky as not only does it push me to take photos of my children each week but it also creates a fantastic memory bank on which to look back upon in years to come.
The holidays are officially here, the children are no longer trudging back and forth to School or Nursery each day, there is no longer a rigid routine to stick to and whilst I love being free to be able to come and go as we please, I also miss the routine as the both the children and I lack direction.
Seriously these kids of ours have more toys than Toys R Us yet already they have complained that they are ‘bored’ which I find hard to believe considering that our house is stacked to the rafters with entertainment. We have already taken the kids swimming, to the park, out for walks, to family celebrations and we have planned numerous other activities for them to enjoy throughout the holidays yet it never seems to be enough!
How is it that children these days cannot cope with a little boredom? Christ, I was an only child and back when I was a kid there were times when I too was bored but given time I found things to do, ways in which to busy myself and I truly believe that at times boredom actually did me some good.
Here are my ‘blissfully bored’ children on a trip out to Tesco, I know it’s hardly exciting but without food in the fridge they’d only complain of hunger along with their endless boredom and god forbid I give either of them any further excuses to whinge or whine.
Thanks again for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
