over thanksgiving, the bp’s wonderful mom, barb (aka my mother-in-law), served us some delicious punkin cake. but alas, she did not have enough forks! so she gave me this tiny pickle fork:
barb was apologetic, but eric’s equally wonderful older sister thea (aka my sister-in-law and mom to the cutest and smartest baby ever born) immediately said, “don’t worry, mom! laura loves anything that’s cute and tiny!”
truer words do not exist. and in honor of thea and her soothsaying, i’d like to post two tiny bits of information:
1. i have officially been approved for a continuous glucose monitor! i am 100% covered by blue cross blue shield (i knew my wonky blood sugar would eventually lead to something good), and it shipped yesterday! i should have the cgm by tuesday, which means that i am one step closer to becoming a robot. next year’s halloween costume will definitely involve a red dress and pinafore.
2. another long run with my team is in the books. the freakazoid in tights (me) completed a six-miler at a much quicker pace than usual. hootie hoo!
book recommendation for a tiny person:
bread and jam for frances, by russell hoban, pictures by lillian hoban.
my all-time favorite picture book… i wish i had little salt and pepper shakers that i could pack in my lunchbox. that frances was so lucky!
