The Splinter.

Hubba got two splinters in her foot at school today. This is what happens when you don't wear shoes on the playground. I'm a little annoyed that her teacher left them because they lodged deeper into her feet and by the time she got home they were not reachable.

I tried with tweezers.
She hyperventilated.

Took her down to the The Livian, and that only left two mothers traumatized and a little girl on the verge of a panic attack. I did not take photos of this. I did not think to. I wouldn't have anyway. It was a sad 30 minutes watching her fight and scream and lose her breath. I told Mitchy I wasn't going in when it's time for Hub's to have a baby in the future. Worst. Patient. Ever. Pretty sure she was speaking in tongues during that ordeal. She was fine ten minutes after cuddles and 'wear your fricken shoes' counsel.

At The Livians. Pretty much my third home, after Mums.

YAY!! I got a blog nickname!!

In the states we aren't allowed to take kids splinters out, and it would always make me so sad. We would have to call their parents. It's considered an "invasive medical procedure" :/ Most parents aren't able to leave work due to splinters tho, so kids end up suffering through till end of day. But they could have at least called you. Also, aren't you at the school?

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!
