Worst aunt goes to this guy (pointing to myself). Happy belated birthday to my precocious, daring and wonderful niece Rosie. I’m sorry I momentarily forgot your birthday yesterday, it’s all because of reasons.
It’s been an exhilirating but exhausting trip to Ottawa this long weekend. I’m already on the train home and I can’t wait to put my feet up and relax.
I stayed at my cousin Theresa’s — gasp! — new house. It was a lot of fun with the charming but tireless Rosie who will wear you down. Luckily she really enjoyed the two unicorn toys I got her, which she dubbed Cee Cee and Poofy. We hit up Winterlude in Gatineau for ice sliding and tubing with my plethora of nieces and skating yesterday. I am truly a terrible athlete.
Rosie and I were on the ice (Rosie for her first time, mine for my second) and I was soooooo bad. My feet hurt, damn it! And little kids were zooming by, all fancy and skilled. Jerks.
Last night the wine flowed and I had a great time meeting my cousins’ fellas and playing with the kids. I was the first one up in preparation for my departure but things quickly turned into a madhouse when Rosie peed in the bed.
