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

Kahlil Gilbran

I always joke about my boys being little monkeys – they clamber and climb everything – out of cots, over the sofa, and they love the playground. What I didn’t realise however was that Ollie has taught himself to climb trees – and he can do it well! No wonder I am going grey.

To look around and suddenly see your four year old several feet off the ground – a bit of a heart stopping moment. Although as Ell told me, he’s not made of glass, and apparently, he loved climbing trees as a kid. So here he is, my little monkey, up a tree.

I’m just crossing my fingers that he doesn’t do it too often!

I love sharing these little moments of childhood each week – you can see who else has linked with Donna at What The Redhead Said this week by clicking here…

    Oh his cheeky little face, brilliant! We used to climb trees when we were little too, but it still scares me a bit when I see my son do it! x #LivingArrows

    I don’t think either of mine have ever climbed a tree – I might suggest it next time we go somewhere! x
