This weeks Living Arrows submission is one I’ve posted previously on Instagram (you can join us here). This week is my first week back in the office so we popped out to the shops at the weekend to pick me up something to wear. You know the thing – something that wasn’t stained in sick, didn’t need washing and made me look fab (not fat).
After a successful shop, we decided to celebrate with lunch out before heading home. It’s the first time in a long time that we’ve attempted a restaurant as a trio; previously he’s always been too little to make it into the highchair and we’ve wolfed down our food in between bouncing him and keeping him entertained.
Armed with a million pots of pre-prepared food, we pulled up the highchair, sat him at the table with us and let him join in. It was lovely. Yes, it was messy and yes, he decided he’d had enough RIGHT at the moment our food arrived, but it felt like we could enjoy our first family meal out. It felt like an absolute ‘I am a parent’ moment.
Seven and a half months in and we’re finally starting to crack food. Albeit only the carrot crisps.
