“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gilbran This weeks Living Arrows was a particularly proud mummy moment for me.  Izzie took her promises at Brownies, and got to wear her uniform for the first time. She was so proud and looked so grown up. When she was repeating her promises I had a tear in my eye – I am so lucky I get to be this little ones mummy.  It also surprised me how all the Brownie songs and traditions came flooding back to me. I found myself repeating ‘twist…

“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” Kahlil Gilbran   This week Izzie went to her first Brownie session. She has been counting down the days and been so excited to go. I have very fond memories of Brownies and it taught me valuable life skills so I’m so excited for her to go. She came back absolutely loving it and really excited to get her uniform when she takes her ‘promises’ in a few weeks!
