November started on a shatacular note, and it ended on a super collosal shatacular note. I’m glad it’s behind me.
It was so emotionally challenging I can’t even properly articulate why it was so awful. The election, my grandpa’s death anniversary, Thanksgiving, being in Ohio over the holiday, its all just been one great big fucking nightmare that I felt like wouldn’t come to an end. Of course it did, December is brightened by my Twins’ first birthday, followed by a whirlwind trip to Indy for doctor’s appointments and other errands I’ve been shuffling off forever.
There’s also Christmas to look forward to, which means spending plenty of extra time with Hubs. This year is really the first year Little is extra excited for the Christmas holiday. She can’t wait. I feel bad that we don’t have all of our decorations here. She was looking forward to a tree, and decorating it but with all the moving around we’re doing it’s been left in storage. She did make me this tree though, and I think it’s much better than any of those store bought things.
She helped me make the Twins’ smash cake last night! I’m still trying to figure out how to accomplish a smash cake event in my apartment without ruining the carpet lol. I think I’m just going to put out a sheet in the living room floor or something. They need to smash cakes. It’s a rite of passage for all children from infancy to toddlerhood. Lol.
Or, hey! I could give them the cake IN THE BATHTUB. Yes! That’s it! Totally giving my kids their smash cake in the bathtub. That’s a parenting win right there for sure!
Ugh… the month is young, but starting off on the right foot. Let’s all hope it stays that way. Good riddance November!!
