Kid Truths

Me: "I'm sorry."

Kahu: "Why?"

Me: "I'm sorry for being such a grumpy Mummy."

Kahu: "You're not."

(Gives me a huge hug, pulls away, gingerly takes my face in his hands and gazes deeply into my eyes.)

"And all those times when Tahi says you're fat? You're not. Ok? You're not."

I should add here that Tahi has NEVER called me fat (to my face, anyway) soooo ummmm...

Happy Friday! Better go work on my beer gut...

Pinwheels all day, errrrday! I think I've found my passion, yo! What did I do before these came into my life? They are the ultimate school lunch saviour. Pizza (spinach and cheese) and Vegemite and Cheese Pinwheels. So easy to make and the kids aren't sick of them....yet!

Here's a link to the recipe:

This Is Not How You Eat a Pie

My sons' school had a PTA fundraiser last week - Bogan Bingo Night. It was brilliant - BYO (bring your own) drinks and snacks and get dressed up and act silly. It was great fun. Apparently, that day at school, my son's Year 5 teacher was telling the kids to remind their parents about the fundraiser that night. That's when my son raised his hand.

What he should have said: "My mum's going with a bunch of her well behaved friends to have some good, wholesome fun and raise funds for our school."

What he actually said: "My mum's going, and she'll be DRUNK!"

How do I know this? Numerous mums from his class told me that night. In my defence, they were drunker than me. 
Their kid just didn't sell them out.

(I've protected the identities of my lovely friends here, they do have actual faces.)

The boys were digging around in the yard and found this old car. Crazy to wonder when it was buried by some child - in the 50's or 60's maybe?
