#LivingArrows – Snuggling On The Sofa After School

We are so lucky to have children that actually get on with each other, don’t get me wrong they have their moments as we all do but for the majority of the time our kids happily play and spend time together.

J & E have a four-year age gap, there is the obvious gender difference and they are total polar opposites in terms of personality yet. They will both stretch that extra mile to take part in one and others activities whether its role-playing as a cowboys or reading books about fairy princesses, they are quite happy to do pretty much any activity so long as it’s together.

E spends her mornings at nursery and afternoons with me at home. Almost as soon as I pick her up from nursery she will ask how long it is until we can collect J from school. It is so sweet, E adores her big brother and will often smother him with cuddles when he comes out of school.

J & E can quite usually be found snuggling up on the sofa or laying on the floor playing games or watching television when they are left to their own devices. You never usually tend to see one without the other, I love that my kids share such a strong bond and can only hope it continues into adulthood.

When E was first-born J informed us that he wanted to marry his sister. This was rather alarming but he was only four-years old and has since changed his mind!


Here are my two little ones sharing some snuggles on the sofa after a long, rainy day occupied by learning, playing, book fairs and now some well deserved chill out time.

    This is too adorable. It must have been love at first sight if he wanted to marry her. So sweet x

    Oh that’s so lovely to hear. My two get on very well most of the time at the moment but I worry that the difficult times will increase as they get older. I hope not!
