Everyone is still unsettled. We still wind up sitting at Mums for hours just enjoying being together and so the baby doesn't get to bed until late and we don't spend as much time at home as we could be. I've tried, but I always get drawn back to Mums. If I ever won the lotto, I'm moving this house 5 houses down the street and into Mums backyard.

Took Hubba to the aquarium today. She hated every minute and there were only 10 of them because of it.

Here she is dressed up in her christmas costume making up her own modern dance moves to "Clarry's song".

I'm excited about this year. Not so much that all of what I intend to do will be done without you, but it's ok. We're going to be ok.

First on the list.
Potty training ... because changing diapers is gangsta and I gag everytime.

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!
