Week 1 down

I’ve done it again. I’ve gone and over-loved another baby and now she’s obsessed. She cries when I leave the room, even though there are other people in the room aka her brothers and Aunty Hubs. She follows me to the bathroom and observes like a psychopath and this … this is how she must go to sleep when she stays over otherwise, she’s not going to sleep.
She kicks her brother when we’re all in bed. He’s not allowed to be near me. So we hold hands secretly.
Uncle Jasiah arrived from the big smoke today to spent his second week of school holidays with The Livian’s.
A date with Hubs at our spot in town. The closest thing to a diner with comfort food that Hastings has to offer.
The boy asked Nan Nan for a tent to make a hut. She granted his wish.
Dreamy Dumplings the food truck .. the best tasting I’ve had ever, but 6 pieces for $10.
Tonight I have 4 kids. All I wanted to do was watch the rugby in peace. 
It wasn’t meant to be.

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!
