Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood. The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
Lucas and I met up with one of my friends on Friday. We have always lived near to each other but became close when we were pregnant, going to prenatal yoga together. Lucas was born the February after S was born in November.
It’s always lovely when we get a chance to meet up as Lucas and S immediately run-up to each other. After they both finished their cake and drinks, they set to work on reorganising cushions on the cafe sofas, a bit of colouring and a lot of taking sugar sachets in and out of the bowl.
S is such a loving girl. Lucas isn’t big on kissing, if someone wants a kiss, he will offer his forehead. Even if D and I want a kiss, we get the forehead, it is very rare that we get a kiss on the lips or even cheek.
S doesn’t take this though, she roughly cuddles him (looks a bit like strangling) so they end up falling on the floor but Lucas isn’t bothered, he smiles and gets back up. As for a kiss goodbye, she wasn’t going to accept the forehead, she went for a smacker on the lips and Lucas didn’t protest x
