Living Arrows – Week 29
“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
The Summer holidays are here and whilst hubby has one more day in school to go before he breaks up, I am more than jealous! I work all year in a school and get annual leave to stagger throughout the year so in a couple of weeks I’ll be taking two weeks annual leave to join Little Mr and my hubby in some quality time together.
This weekend has been just perfect. With no firm plans and warm sunshine to enjoy, we headed into Solihull to do a spot of shopping and then we promised that Little Mr could spend an hour at the park playing on his scooter and enjoying the activities at the park.
I really do have to remind myself constantly that he is only two (29 months old) he has such a wise old head on his shoulders and he amazes me with the comments he comes out with. When you don’t think he’s listening, he is. When you don’t think he’s watching, he is. He might be pretending to ignore me and busy himself with his toys but he’ll come out with something I mentioned later on in the day and will surprise me!
He wants to try everything. He’s got such enthusiasm it really is wonderful to see. Despite feeling a little bit scared about the rope bridge at the park, he conquered it. He walked ahead of his Daddy and walked across the bridge. His little face lit up when he reached me at the other side, he was so proud of himself.
He’s such a thoughtful little fella. We were driving home earlier in the week and saw a boy lying on the pavement with his bike on top of him. We think he must have fallen off just as we approached the hill to where we were driving but I stopped and got out of the car and asked him if he was okay, he was, if not a little embarrased as he jumped straight back on his bike and rode off. Little Mr sat in his car seat and he was very concerned. He asked me if the boy had been crying and if he was alright and he seemed to be a little sad from what he saw. He even told his Grandparents about it the following day and they said he was concerned. What a little sweetheart!
I love this little boy more than life itself. He has his moments, like all toddlers do trying to find out what boundaries there are, but on the whole I am one blessed Mama.
