First day of day care.

Everyone else told me it would be good for her and for me and so she is currently enjoying her first official day at Kohanga/Daycare.
She was excited.

I had Tyler take her in the event she cried and wanted to come home, because I would have caved and bought her home.

Huevos Rancheros on left over enchiladas for breakfast.

With her new cape, she's wasted a bunch of pull-ups keeping to the theme of being Super Girl.

Yesterday she asked me not to call her Hubba because she was a 'big girl'.
She said she'd like to be called EJ Shultz.
Still wears a diaper and has a binky ... but is a big girl.

Ahh, no girl.

e.j. ?

i love that she likes that cape so much. i got really frustrated making it and almost didnt send it until mahonri was like, "ariel, does superwomans cape look perfect? no. its probably all burnt and dirty from saving the planet from an asteroid or whatever." i thought that was a good sentiment. its better to get into life and maybe get a little dirty than worry about a little dirt or how straight a seam is :) hugs to her!!

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
