The last hurrah

I'm not sure where this blog is going. What have I got to say? I wonder.

The babies turn one in just over a month. I am going to try and blog every day until then. For some reason I think this will help me make a decision about whether to continue.

I've decided to organise a Rainbow Families Christmas picnic in the park, a couple of weeks before Christmas. I'd like to meet other same-sex headed families in Brisbane, and I think it's a good time for the kids to gather with other same sex headed families. There are so many representations of nice straight families in the media around that time, it'll be nice for them to see their own family structure reflected. I'm modelling it on the State Electricity Commission employee Christmas parties I used to go to when we were kids - races with ribbons for the winners, icy poles (banana or chocolate) and a visit from Santa who hands out cheap presents. We have a thick velvet Santa suit (courtesy of Melbourne Santa events) for our Brisbane Santa to swelter in - we just need to find a fun, camp helper.

Baby awake!

I for one would miss your blog if you didn't continue it. I want to see those beautiful babies grow up!

I agree with Kelly. Keep it going. I'd love to see what happens to the twins as they grow, and I like your social commentary.
