Relaxing And Grubby Windows – Living Arrows [43/52 2017]

We’re back for another Living Arrows link up. This week we have pretty much done absolutely nothing. I’ve not been sleeping well and we’ve had a fair few late nights so I’ve felt like doing nothing. I hate spending so much time at home as I feel so bad for Oliver. I’ve tried everything I can to keep him entertained whilst we’re relaxing (I use this term lightly!) at home together.

Luckily I still managed to squeeze in snapping a few photos around my rather untidy house whilst we’re relaxing. I’m trying really hard to make sure I try and get a few photos of Oliver a week, just so I have lots of memories to look back at when he’s older. He’s growing up way too fast!

Relaxing At Home

The first thing I see in this photo is a horribly messy window that is overdue a clean from little grubby hands. The thing is though, that’s what parenting is like (for us anyway – I’m sure we’re not the only ones!). Keeping on top of chores takes a back seat when you’ve got a child. The past week or so Oliver has wanted to be by my side every second of the day. I don’t fancy doing lots of cleaning and tidying with a little toddler following me around who wants attention.

I took this photo because I loved the lighting and it was only until I transferred the photo onto my computer I saw the grubby hand prints. First I was embarrassed and thought¬†‘there is no way in hell I’m sharing this photo’,¬†but actually I’m not bothered by it now. It really grasps what parenting can be like sometimes. Sometimes our house is a mess and I’m always hard on myself for it. I need to remember a lot of my time is taken up doing other things, including looking after this little one. So for now, I’m okay with a grubby window.

    Ahhh it’s such an adorable photo of him though, look at that face!
    I totally understand what you mean, it’s so hard trying to keep on top of everything, and trying to keep babies entertained inside can get really hard and tiring at times! I hope you feel at least a little more relaxed this week!

    I love this photo – it’s one of my favourites from the week. The lighting is perfect and I didn’t even notice the smudgy window! x
