Living Arrows 8/52- Find out what we’ve been up to this week


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

I’m back again! The last two weeks post Harper’s hip operation have been ridiculously hectic. I probably could have squeezed a bit of blogging in but in all honesty it would have come at the cost of my sanity.  There’s not too much of my sanity left so I though best not to deplete it even further.

But I’m back now with my weekly living Arrows post thanks to the lovely Donna over at what the redhead said.  So let’s crack on with what the kids have been up to for the last two weeks.


living arrows - 1 year old infant in hip spica cast on basket swing
Children never cease to amaze me.  It’s not been super easy to adjust to Harper spica cast (for both Harper and myself).  Yet only a week after going in she’s starting to be a bit more settled and accept her current limitations in mobility.  We’re ever so lucky to have a few parks near to us – one of which has a basket swing! Harper enjoyed being pushed back and forwards as well as round and round.  Hoping the weather stays good so we can spend more time outdoors this coming week.

I’ve been trying to ensure that the time I do have with Brooke has been quality time the past two weeks. We’ve not managed to have a huge amount of time together and between the care required of her older brother and younger sister I can tell she’s feeling left out. She’s super happy when we do get the time to do something alone together.  Her favourite activity this week was to make these amazing shopkins biscuits!  She has developed a massive shopkins obsession of late.  I’m torn in between being super happy about this as the geek in me wants to collect them all to mortified at the cost of tiny crappy bits of plastic. They are cute though….

Chase fell really ill just before the end of term.  It’s a lot harder for Chase to bounce back from illness due to his other medical issues and  it’s a huge task to care for him when he’s not well. On top of this Harper had only just gone into plastercast!  Grandparents to the rescue thankfully, he spent a few days recovering there and then over half term went and had some time with his Dad which meant I could concentrate my time on Harper.  He’s fully recovered now and has been out and about looking at the picture his Dad sent me!

Next week it’s the return of nursery and school – which means more blogging time, hurrah! Make sure you subscribe to keep up to date with new posts as there’s lots to come next week.

    I’m glad to hear they’re both bouncing back. It’s amazing how resilient babies can be. Great job mama – you’re doing so well #livingarrows

    Glad they’re both doing ok. Those biscuits looks lovely. I’m glad I’ve a boy who frowns on anything that could be seen to be girly, so no need for shopkins for us! #livingarrows

    Oh wow you’ve had a lot going on! I hope Chase is feeling better and that Harper is getting used to the cast – I hope it’s removed before too long! Children are so adaptable and I’m sure Brooke will be taking this all in her stride! x
