Living Arrows 26/52


“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”

by Kahlil Gibran

On one of my days with Max this week, we visited Loseley Park Gardens, near Guildford. It was a beautiful garden to explore, and Max had a great time roaming around the different parts of the garden. The part I found most lovely was when we discovered the White Garden, with it’s long pond, and this cute little frog statue next to it. Max loved this little guy. He insisted he squat down next to it, like a frog, and I take his photo. Let me tell you, taking a photo while your toddler is simultaneously trying to sit right on the edge of the pond is quite a nerve wracking experience!

    Aw, he looks so taken with that frog! I bet it was nerve wracking though with him sitting the edge of a pond for photo taking. #LivingArrows

      Thanks Karen – yup, after this one he insisted on another where he was literally sat right on the edge. Suffice to say I just quickly pretended to take a photo of that one and got him away from there!!

    This is such a great photograph. He looks mesmerized by the frog, he just wants to play with is.
