I just heard from one of my bestest buddies: successful healthy birthing this very morning. Baby Girl, brand new, hours old. Welcome! I long to rush to her side but the thick green nose of my toddler (SORRY…) will keep me away. For today, at least.
All this on a day where the morning radio news was full of grim news about life for kiwi children. One in five in poverty … UNICEF is unimpressed. Our school results indicate that not enough kids are getting the education to score the jobs to lift them out of poverty.
I will return to my serious and relevant advocacy when I do not have a toddler on my hip, clawing for the computer. Naughty mama am I (“bubby’s turn ‘puter!). Meantime, enjoy the coolest Christmas music EVER right here.
