Is NZ a likely place for an uprising? I know you've got bucketloads of political unrest and all, but... Oh, I just had a thought; at least if you guys do ever get into trouble, we'll be willing to send peacekeepers! We're always sending our troops around the region. You see footage all the time of our military teaching the young kids cricket and stuff...




... what?

Could you send over the cricket team to teach our cricket team how to play?

sensitive
non judgmental
a good sense of humor
curious about the world, current events
well behaved, have manners

Orphans.


No, what sort of question is this? I'd like them to be pretty damn good, obviously.

This is my hope for my 2 girls -

To laugh often and much,
To win the respect of intelligent people
And the affection of children,
To earn the appreciation of honest critics
And endure the betrayal of false friends,
To appreciate beauty,
To find the best in others,
To leave the world a little better
Whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition,
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson

what an absolutely gorgeous thing to say

it made me stop and think harder about what i hope my kids will be . . . essentially i just hope they are good people who are content with themselves and where they are at any given stage in their life

You want your kids to be narcissists?

I'm raising Lily to be Austrian. No one ever makes fun of Austrians.
