“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”
We’re a day late with this week’s Living Arrows post, but we’ve got a good reason. It was Amy’s 6th birthday yesterday and believe me when I say that sitting on my laptop was the last thing on my mind. Amy got up super early as she was so excited and had a fab day, while I walked around wondering how on earth I’ve got a 6-year-old?
I mean, I obviously know how that happened but it amazes me how fast these last six years have gone. I still remember the moment when the midwife Amy put in my arms as if it was yesterday. This overwhelming ‘Oh my God, she’s mine’ moment that I still get every single day.
Thoughts on Amy’s 6th birthday
I’m not normally a terribly emotional person. I don’t talk about my feelings unless someone makes me furious, haha, but with Amy, it’s completely different. She makes me so proud to be her Mummy every single day and it’s something I would happily shout from the rooftops. I mean, I guess most people will absolutely adore the living daylight out of their kids but I just can’t get over how amazing Amy is.
She’s such a wonderful little human being. She’s feisty and strong willed but at the same time, she’s incredibly caring and loving. She’s always considerate of others and their feelings and would never exclude anyone from anything she does. She’s adventurous and inquisitive and she loves learning about the world around her and the people that live in it. I can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for her. It’s a big one for sure with her starting school in September. She’s super excited about it already. Why? Because she’ll learn how to read, so she can read me a bedtime story too. Told you she’s amazing!
