For this week’s Living Arrows update, I couldn’t not mention the beach. Me and the boy go quite regularly but it takes a little something special to make it down there as a whole family these days; the weekends are so short and we tend to centre our walks around places we can also exhaust the dog! Not so last weekend, we packed the coats in the car and headed off to Sidmouth beach for a bit of a promenade along the promenade – classy, no?!
Once there, we bundled up in plenty of layers and fought over who should get to push the pram. Is it just me that finds it comforting to have something to hold on to these days?! Most of the walk was spent with myself on pushing duties whilst Dave raced ahead to pull faces back at us… something that was met with baby hysteria!! Daddy is DEFINITELY number one at the moment, if he’s at home then he’s the one required for all the carrying and hugging. It’s lovely to watch! Despite all my best attempts ‘Dada’ is uttered over and over without any sign of ‘Mama’ though, the traitor.
We also updated the wardrobe this week; 6-9 month trousers look like pedal-pushers (still a thing?!) so we’ve had to invest and move up a size. Frankly, I barely needed the excuse given that the child has a far better wardrobe than either of his parents! The only thing is, the clothes are now a little large… the poor boy does have hands, I promise!
