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

by Kahlil Gibran

This weekend Holly had her first party from a friend at preschool. It’s the first time it hasn’t been a party of a family friend and Alice hasn’t been there. She has been very excited all week and couldn’t wait to get ready. Doing her hair and ‘make up’, this maybe a pretend lipstick but she doesn’t mind. I couldn’t love her more.


Alice’s photo was taken on Friday after school. She had coming running out of school happy to tell me she had gone up another level in numeracy. She couldn’t be happier and I couldn’t be prouder.

    Great that Alice is doing so well with numeracy – such an important topic.

    I love watching little ones ‘doing’ make-up. Holly looks adorable!

    That is SO cute!!! Bless Holly! I hope she had fun. I always feel bad because George only seems to go as a plus one for Henry’s friends or one of my own friend’s parties, never someone from pre-school! (Second child probs, huh!!) xx

    Prentend make up is my 3 year olds favourite at the moment. I’m happy with that though because it keeps her happy and leaves no mess!

    Well done Alice, brilliant news. So lovely to see how proud she is too.

    Alice is looking so grown up these days! And that’s such lovely news that she’s gone up a level with her numeracy. Rhys has moved up a level in the books he’s reading at school and is so excited too, it’s lovely to see isn’t it! x #LivingArrows
