It’s true. Every now and then I feel myself itching with it. It’s hard to get out of the habit. And then every now and then I want to say ZOMG look how amazingly beautiful they are! And the toddler said ‘please mum’ the other day and it was brilliant.
And then I realise that it’s boring. I’m boring myself right now. Leave it on instagram and #drunktweetfriday. Those people are very forgiving. It’s not to say if I had a really funny idea for a story or had something I interesting to say about parenting or being a mother, I wouldn’t share it. I would. It’s a huge part of my life.
But really, my goal should be at the very least to not bore myself. So in the interest of not boring myself into some kind of coma, here is a picture of my biggie being beautiful. And here is something I wrote over at Kate Says Stuff about running.
I’m talking about how to make that 20km run non-intimidating. The first time I attempted it I was terrified. It’s SO FAR. And I’m talking about getting over the idea that if you stop to walk it’s cheating or it doesn’t count. And how intervals can actually do something for your tortoise pace, if like me you are the slowest runner on the freaking planet.
