Living Arrows 6/52

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth

I’ve been trying to enjoy this week as much as possible in particular with my youngest Harper.  When this post goes live tomorrow she will likely all ready be in theatre having her hip operation and plaster cast applied.  I’ll be keeping her journey up to date over on the Dysplasia Diaries section of the blog


I managed to catch this cheeky snap of Harper seconds before she managed to pull a section of the millennium Falcon off – it’s now been fixed and moved to a safer spot.  We’re hoping this year to create some more shelf and display space in the front room.  This means that I can buy more geeky stuff to put on display!

Brooke’s behaviour hasn’t been brilliant this week. She knows Harper’s going in for surgery and can tell my stress levels are a bit higher than normal.  Her eating has also been worse than her usual standard (which is pretty bad already). But on our shopping trip out this week she did eat a whole pizza! I know Pizza isn’t the healthiest option – but just the fact she was eating some calories was good enough for me.

Chase had beavers this weekend.  I love that we were lucky enough to find a fully inclusive group.  Attending a mainstream activity regularly with other children who differ in ability to him is important for his social skills.  His SEN placement at school is definitely the best thing for him but having the time at Beavers gives him the chance to socialize with a large group of children he wouldn’t otherwise get the opportunity to.  This week the beavers learnt how to fold clothes using cardboard folders.  Chase was actually a pro at this as they’d recently done this at school too!

    That’s a lovely picture of Brooke. That’s pretty cool learning to fold clothes – I think N needs some lessons in that! #livingarrows

    Oh Chase looks so proud – and great that he gets to mix with children of all abilities. Our children often have pizza for dinner – they eat well the rest of the time and have plenty of fruit so I think it’s a case of everything in moderation. Harper looks just so cheeky! x
