What has a birthday, an anniversary, a parenting milestone and a significant cultural event in it? That’s right, the December rewind! In December my son turned 18, we had our 20th wedding anniversary, the same son finished high school and did well enough to get accepted into uni and we had Christmas. It’s a big month in our house!
DECEMBER REWIND HIGHLIGHTS
Well there are so many to choose from! Having an adult son is a pretty big deal. Getting away for three days to the beach was also a big deal. Having a keto Christmas was another big deal. What wasn’t a big deal was our anniversary. 20 years of married life is a milestone for sure, but we just are not those people who make a big song and dance about it. We did make plans to go out for breakfast, a keto breakfast date, but a silly arguement first thing in the morning on the dog walk culled those plans. Marital bliss indeed!
DECEMBER REWIND – OUR FIRST BORN
So my highlight really is my son. Graduating and receiving a result good enough to get into his preferred uni course. I am SO PROUD! I feel like we have ticked that parenting box. I feel like getting through the teen trauma years of 13 to 18 intact is parenting gold. I am equal parts relieved, thrilled and tired. Those last couple of high school years was a BIG uphill push. But we have plateaued now. Hallelujah! One down, one to go.
Here are some happy snaps of the boy I adore. The boy that taught me to be a mum.
DECEMBER REWIND – CHRISTMAS
Christmas is always a highlight right. We ate, we laughed, we gifted, we ate more and it was a lovely family day. Hope your day was special too. Here’s my Christmas menu blog post. It was a very keto Christmas, and I was very happy about that. I did eat more carbs than usual, and there was an impact. Fudge is my thing. If you want to know about that, here’s the video. Warning …. it includes bloating. Plus I did a post Christmas check-in, it’s here. So it took me a few days to get back on track, but I’m there now. Here are my tips and tricks for getting back on the keto pathway after a detour into carb world.
