You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth – Kahlil Gilbran
Living Arrows over at What the Redhead Said is a weekly celebration of childhood. Each Monday I’ll share a picture from our week.
On Wednesday I took Monkey to a Cbeebies event over at Eureka. We had a wonderful day but really that’s a whole other blog post.
We met my friend and god daughter there. We live in Manchester and they live in Leeds so Halifax is a great place for us to meet up. Us mummies have been friends since we were at junior school together so it’s always nice to catch up but what I’ve really loved the last few times we’ve got together is seeing the friendship grow between them.
There is two years age difference between the girls, almost to the day. When Monkey was first born C was fascinated by her but quickly got bored when she realised she didn’t actually do anything. Then we had a bit of an awkward year where Monkey really wanted to join in but couldn’t keep up. Now at two and four they play together beautifully and love each other to bits. They were so excited to see each other and held each others hand for most of the day.
I really hope they will stay great friends as they grow up, just like their mummies did.
