‘You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
Last weekend we managed to get out into the garden for the first time this year and realised what a state it is! Theres so much work we need to do that I am seriously thinking about getting some landscapers in to do it. Nevertheless I decided to use the opportunity of good weather to take Kippers monthly photos. Eleven months – where has that gone? I was talking about it with a friend today, I am not sure I am ready to leave the baby years behind just yet. Although theres nothing I can do about it. But eleven months?! I must put some time aside to think about his first Birthday. How did that happen?
The photo that I have chosen of Monkey this week was actually taken yesterday. We had just finished school for the Easter break and I promised him an ice cream. He normally opts for bubblegum flavour but for some reason he went for blueberry. I have no idea who invented that cursed bright blue, sickly sweet flavoured muck or how it fits into the traditional Italian gelato category. I try to avoid it whenever possible but since I had promised him he could have whatever he wanted I was fully expecting him to choose it. Always one to surprise me, further evidence of his growing independence he chose the blueberry because it had fruit on top… And opted for the golden sprinkles. We found a bench in the sun and he snuggled up close and we ate our ice creams. I am hoping Summer will be full of moments like these.
Wishing you a great ‘hot and sunny’ weekend xx
