Happy Monday! Last week flew by, mostly because Daisy was out Monday – Friday either with relatives, at nursery or because we had plans already. This meant that I’ve got ahead with work and I am feeling pretty confident for the weeks ahead now. My Mum is having her open heart surgery NEXT WEEK on Wednesday and so I need to spend this next week writing what content I can, and staying ahead. Anyway, here is our Living Arrows 6/53 post.

Living Arrows 6/53

On Saturday Daddy had the whole weekend off so we decided to go to Sainsburys for some supplies. Daisy was happy to walk most of the way there, and was asleep in the pram on the way home.

Thomas had the whole weekend off and we’ve had a nice time. We’ve got some chores done, completed a little de-cluttering and spent lots of time together. Even though we didn’t have any grand plans this weekend I still feel like we had a lovely time and it was really relaxing. I like staying on top of the chores, so the weekdays solo parenting aren’t stressful, and Thomas is only working Monday, Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday and then he begins a weeks holiday. This is perfect timing with my Mums upcoming operation!

Daisy seems to have had another leap in her development. Her sentence structure is getting fantastic and we have been working on the first few letters of the alphabet, as per our 2018 bucket list, and also counting from 10 – 20. I love teaching Daisy new things and she really is at the perfect age for absorbing everything like a sponge. Which I often remember since that time I caught her to swear!

If you enjoyed this Living Arrows post you may enjoy looking back at our first full year of Living Arrows from last year.

    It’s always so nice to spend time together as a family isn’t it? I’m always amazed at how good Daisy’s speech is! You must be very proud of her

      I am indeed. I think all babies have something they are ‘advanced’ at and something they aren’t. The staff at nursery definitely help with Daisy! x

    I love weekends where you don’t have grand plans but can just get things done to make the week easier! That’s brilliant Daisy is learning so much, now I’m on maternity leave I can’t wait to help teach Alfie new things #livingarrows

    I love quiet weekends amid the busy weeks. I bet Daisy enjoyed some family time. Hope all goes well with your mother surgery.

    Daisy is doing fab! We’re still working on numbers here haha! What ways do you encourage learning numbers?

      We just use lots of counting in everyday life. Stairs, snacks etc x

    It’s amazing watching them learn isn’t it, such a great age when she’s learning and developing constantly! Hope everything goes smoothly with your Mum. x #LivingArrows

    Sounds like a lovely weekend. Sometimes it’s nice to not do much but just spend time together. Hope everything goes well with your mum’s operation. #livingarrows
