Strike 1.

Yesterday when I picked up the child from her Kohanga, she was very sad about something. Tried to make her happy with glove box butterfly lollies, but it only worked for the duration of the short drive home.

Checked her bag to see what needed to be washed in it and saw nothing had changed. Checked her pull up she had on and it felt heavy. Counted what was in her bag and realized they hadn't checked or changed her all day (6 hours). I ripped it off quickly and was welcomed by a raw rash.

I called Michelle first, which only pee'd her off, then I called the school. They have a roster of when and who is changed and Hubba wasn't on the list - at all. At the end of the conversation, it was assumed that because she was 3 she was trained. In saying that, they have a nearly 4 year old there who isn't. I sent her, out of a pull up, this morning and hope they're more vigilant about asking her if she needs to go.

Several of the workers at the daycare I wanted to send her to said not to bother, that there are alot of ugly politics between management and staff and they'd be out of there if they weren't bonded to the place for a few years so I didn't enroll her there. She's at this one mostly because of convenience.

Ngawi didn't go to daycare. He merged into school life fine without it .. sneaks playing minecraft when he's supposed to be using the calculator on the class iPad, but still likes it.

Today is wacky Wednesday.
I was cornered lastnight and I'm having myself a WW today. Shailahzay doesn't know she's coming too. She'll enjoy it.

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!
