If anyone is wondering how lip gloss as a bath toy works out, 1/10. She may be pink for a few days. We may need a new tub. But I found a surprisingly endurable lip gloss. Silver linings? I was just trying to be “fun mummy”… Oops!
Hamish is out tonight so I’m in charge of the bath/milk/bed routine for a change. Normally this is when I disappear into my office. At the sound of starting Isla’s bath, she turns tonight and says “no, no! mummy no start working! no emails!” Routine can win just as much as it can fail. Mompreneuring can win just as much as it can fail. Glam, y’all!...
Prince! Live! Upgraded from the nosebleeds to 10 rows from front stage, yesthanks!!! Girls night for the win:) Ps. Prince is older than my dad. Truth.
"No more pokes today, mummy."
She’s generally so very happy-go-lucky about her needles and sugar checks but this is Isla’s new thing to say when I put her down for a nap. Heart. Ground. *stomp.stomp.stomp* Frig.
World Diabetes Day
So, today is World Diabetes Day. You can tell how much of a newbie to this world I am in the sense that I had no idea. But for next year, I’ll be prepared. And each year after, until there is a cure. I’ve been trying to put into words the experience of Hamish and Phil running the New York City marathon under the context of which they did. Personal achievement, an incredible life...
Isla is *still* singing “happy birthday” to herself. She even carries the right tune. And, when it’s done, she enthusiastically asks for cake. Somebody needs to tell what is clearly the world’s most optimistic diabetic toddler it’s not even her birth month anymore, let alone her birthday!
In a cab, crawling thru traffic. The boys are in a world of pain and, while they’re thrilled they finished, are saying marathons might not be their thing. (I wonder if it’s like immediately after labour and you swear you’re never having any more kids?) All that said, they’re thrilled they finished and we’re so proud! Phil at 4:42 and Hamish at “I have no...
Hamish is at mile 23! So proud of these two!!!
Phil just crossed, Hamish should be about a half hour more if his knee stayed bad!
