Living Arrows | Fun With Ben and Holly

Living Arrows | Fun With Ben and Holly What The Redhead Said Living Arrows UK Parenting Blog Link Up Khalil Gibran Quote

Fun with Ben and Holly? An interesting title considering the look on Iris's face. She doesn't exactly look like she's having fun! This is one of my favourite ever pictures of my daughter purely because her grandparents had been telling me for weeks how much she enjoys 'the ride outside Iceland' and when I finally got round to seeing it myself this is what I was met with.
Iris may not have been having fun but her grandparents were, they were having a whale of a time convincing themselves that Iris was in her element. As you can tell from the look on her face I think she's actually rather underwhelmed by the whole thing! I personally would like to avoid the habit of going on a ride every time we go in town but I understand that as grandparents it's a rite of passage for them. They have to rebel against 'what mummy says' and seeing the joy on their faces is worth it.

The most hilarious thing about this whole scenario is that Iris actually prefers going in the lift or up the escalator in Wilkos rather than being on this ride. The bonus of being on the ride though is that she gets to wave at Tracey in the butchers opposite!

  1. Hehe, this is fab! My boys have always liked sitting in those rides but I had been a mum for five years before I actually succumbed to putting money in one! #LivingArrows

  2. Ahh she doesn't look very sure about the ride does she? I agree with you about grandparents though - they love to spoil the grandkids! #LivingArrows

  3. This is not related to your post at all BUT... that is a rainbow cardigan of dreams! I love it so much! x


Thank you for supporting me on my journey to raise awareness about mothers on the autistic spectrum. We do exist, we just need people to know we do!
