Elma Family Kitty Living Arrows Photography

Living Arrows 2/52

Childhood is a powerful force to be reckoned with…

…Because when you’re only one, coating yourself, your hair, your chair, and much of the surrounding dinner table in porridge is considered unbelievable cute.

Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade family life

…Because crazy bedhead hair, and the distant gaze and pouty expression that’s going to get to a ‘look’ when you’re a teenager, provokes laughter, a smothering of kisses and a big squeezy hugΒ from your parents.

Space for the Butterflies - an eclectic handmade family life

…And because sticking your tongue out and giggling is still just about enough to distract from the unbridled chaos which you have brought to the lounge.

    Oh Carie, love the shot of Kitty sticking her tongue out! She seems so grown up in your last few posts. I’m glad I’m the only one who’s living room looks like that after a heavy play session.

    • Carie 14/01/2014 at 8:41 am

      She does seem to have had another growth spurt recently – it’s hard to remember she’s only three sometimes!

  • lucy at dear beautiful 15/01/2014 at 9:05 pm

    It’s all so true Carie. Kids just get away with murder don’t they? The magic of being mini and incredibly cute. x

    • Carie 15/01/2014 at 10:20 pm

      Ah well, there have to be some perks to not being able to reach the top of the kitchen cupboards where they know full well Mummy has stashed the chocolate!

  • Hayley at Shutterflies 18/01/2014 at 4:48 pm

    The pout and bedhead is the best ever! Such cheeky little ladies! x

    • Carie 19/01/2014 at 11:36 am

      She’s certainly developing a flair for the dramatic it’s true!
