Living Arrows 27/52

Living Arrows

I am taking part in Donna from What the Redhead Said‘s Living Arrows – which is a celebration of childhood!

We could all do with a little more celebration in our lives!

To quote Donna, “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” and every Monday we share a moment from our week and invite others to do the same as part of this linky.”





Week 27/52 Living Arrows


A week of stress at work for me ending with appointments at audiology for the little one. There are concerns that he can’t hear out of his left ear, he failed his hearing tests at birth having to be retested three weeks later. They were fine at that stage, but once again he has failed them. We have to wait and see as he’s too young to test his ears individually, I feel sad. You don’t want life to be unnecessarily hard for your little one do you? I can’t do anything for him except wait. Sucks. Life feels so heavy at the minute!

Thankfully we’re off on holiday in ten days! So in preparation, I took the little man to get his hair cut. He doesn’t look like a baby anymore! He looks like a toddler! Waaaaaaaaaaa!

    Bless him – I don’t know if it helps but I am deaf in one ear and it’s never held me back. Except for needing to walk on the left hand side of people so I can hear them! 😉 big hugs mama #LivingArrows

      This is exactly what I need to hear right now, thank you so much! As they haven’t been able to provide much info, my mind goes straight to worst case scenario!x

    My Mum is hard of hearing in one ear and it hasn’t held her back at all in life. Have a wonderful holiday! #LivingArrows

    Firstly, he looks FAR too grown up and dapper in this picture. I can’t believe you got his haircut?! Now he’s officially no longer a baby. Secondly, I’m sorry you had a rubbish week and for what audiology said, it would make me sad too but like you said, he’s exactly the same kiddo as before. I will cross my fingers that it’s something that’s minimal! x #livingarrows
