Living Arrows #5


“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows, are sent forthโ€™”  

Kahlil Gibran


Finlay is the middle child and probably feels it too. I was the eldest and there was only two of us growing up so I have no idea what it must be like. He is one of three sometimes four children in the house and I think this is partly why he can be dramatic, to make sure he is noticed. At the weekend I took him to a part Kyle had been invited too, as he was off playing with the older children I had a bit of time with just Finlay, as Ava wasn’t there either he suddenly seemed smaller, younger. We had a cuddle watching the others bounce and then I managed to snap a few pictures of him having a go. They have captured his personality perfectly, cheeky and cute. It’s so hard to be able to give them all the 1 on 1 time that they need. I realised I miss our time together so much since he has started School this year, I’m looking forward to the summer holidays where I will make sure there is lots of time for cuddles.

    Great cheeky photos! It’s so hard finding the 121 time as they get older, I’m sure he loved it with you too X #Livingarrows

    Love this quote. These trampoline and free jump parks seem to be bouncing up everywhere (excuse the pun), I’m looking forward to trying some out with my eldest! #picknmix

    Where are you?It looks like loads of fun!!Glad you got to spend some one on one time with your little man, I imagine it’s really difficult to spend as much time as you would like when you have 3 children. Lovely photos xx #picknmix

    I love your photos – isn’t it great when you manage to capture something of what makes your children who they are, a snapshot of their personalities coming through. Being a middle child must be tricky. Your little lad looks like a wonderful chap #picknmix

    I would love to have a play at one of these trampoline places myself if there were any down here ๐Ÿ˜‰ Lovely photos hon and 1 on 1 time is hard to get, I always feel like my youngest doesn’t get much of it at all, as my eldest has a lot more time off of school for various reasons. They all now how much you love them though and that’s what matters ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aww… this is so lovely. I am a middle child too in a family of 7! So I can totally understand Finlay. He is such a joy on the giant trampoline! Thank you for hosting. x #PicknMix

    Awww I know exactly what you mean – I don’t get much one-on-one time with my eldest but when I do I suddenly realise that he is only 6! I love the look of the trampoline park – will have to take my boys to one over the Summer I think. #PickNMix
