The family went skating tonight. I love seeing them all get out on the floor. Wishin' my toe was better. It's really painful and challenging to skate with a broken toe. I'm supposed to be off of my feet.
My toe's been broken since October. I have skated like 3x. I don't think I can keep doin it. I guess I just need more time to heal. Honestly, since having the c bug I haven't been able to get well and recover from any illness, not jsut this broken toe. Multiple infections and colds since August. It's been a rocky road since the beer bug invaded our lives.
I'm not feeling sorry for myself. I was actually super grateful and happy to get out to the rink tonight and spend time with the kids and Jack. I can't wait to see these kids get more into it. The girls will be experts on wheels in no time.
Stella's 2nd birthday was a unicorn theme. She loves dressing up, as does her big sister, and they both adore unicorns. Clara has been wanting me to throw Stella a unicorn bday for months, so we went with it.
The girls and I had fun doing our makeup with lots of color and sparkles. Stella really wants to have makeup on, but she's also fiercely independent and also wants everything on her lips, so it's challenging.
Everyone had a great time. It was sunny and actually not cold out during the day. William was able to make the party, which was so nice. He made it to her first bday, too. I'm always so happy when all my kids are together.
Stella was gifted wonderful things, unicorn stuffed animals, dinosaurs (she loves dinos, just like her big sissy, and as I did as a little girl) clothes, a doll for the bath, beautiful antique plates, and a balance bike without peddles to get her going.
After the party, later that night, William and I went roller skating, and my friend Asher went with us. Turned out being an awesome day!
Happy second birthday, my ferocious and sweet two year old girl. You're my baby. I love you so much!
