Closing off 2012, this is what I think…

December 18, 2012

Dear Max

I’m wrapping up this blog for the year. We have two weeks at home and I’ll be ticking over with some work, teaching some blog lessons, and spending time with you.

I still have a pile of magazines to read, the rest of Downton Abbey to watch, and a lot of baking and cooking I want to try. I will also be seeking an outfit for Kevin’s wedding, and finding ways to convince you to wear a suit for the wedding as per your pageboy dress code. I lightly joke that it will be easier squeezing myself into a mini suit than it will be you, but dude, I just can’t see you wearing anything against your will. But we have a few weeks to try.

This year has been a good one, and there were opportunities and highs that I never saw coming.

There were lessons, and as it is, some of them were painful. If this year taught me anything, it’s how much much self work I still need, and how I am nowhere close to being the friend, mother and handler of life that I’d like to be.

I have fallen into the same holes over and over, erred, misjudged, overreacted, underreacted, felt too deeply, and not felt enough. But I’m hoping with a bit of self awareness comes change, and I hope that next year I can do things a little smarter. And finally lose those last few kilograms. But what would a round-up of the year be without a new year’s weight resolution?

Thank you for another year as my son. You seem to have my back whenever I’m in a hole, and are swift to get me out. You are the absolute light, and you remind me to do better, and be better.

Love you, and will be back blogging early next year

Mom
