Sometimes we don't brush our hair.

Thanks to YouTube, I found a phonics song that is 20 minutes long. On top of loving the song, like any self-respecting nerd should, it really does help her to learn the sounds of the letters.

Music Theory. It's more my favorite subject than hers.

Counting beyond 10. She gets pretty lost after 13.

School stuffs.

That's the quick brown fox jumping over the lazy dog.

I-i and J-j today.

The dreaded number 14.

Again, thanks to YouTube, I found a counting song that will take her to 20.
Time for Shortland Street. Haven't watched that show in yonks and after watching for almost a week, it's all on.
I don't like that Pania.

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!
