A Minotaur, costume made by Kahurangi and Aunty Donna
And a ninja (I know, I know he is wearing Chinese, not Japanese clothes, you try reasoning with a stubborn 4 year old)
At the moment they are playing duck duck Zeus.
Seemed like a good idea but I spent most of it trying to stop the kids lying in the middle of shop floors.
The maraca is the scanner, the big thing is the library card. Apparently Atarau owed fines, so had to go looking in his piupiu to try to find some money.
Chris: Why are you in that plastic bag?
Kahu: I’m trying to sleep.
Chris: Go sleep in your bed, not in a giant plastic bag
Kahu: Oh yeah.
Laurel: Atarau, stop driving your car into my face
Chris: If you eat this medicine I’ll give you $100
Atarau: Araarrgh bleargh *spit* *spit*
Chris: Ok, I tried to hide the medicine in his spaghetti.
Kahu (when opening his presents): Oh a book of Maori words, that’s just what I wanted!!
(Never mind the huge car garage and the cool marble game he just got, nope the dictionary is his favourite)
Kahurangi borrowed my phone to take some photos at Te Papa on Saturday, not too bad for a 4 year old.
And it’s not just about the rugby, although for the most part it was a weekend of excellent games, a lot of which were tense and undecided for the best part of the game.
But for me, it’s also all the other things going on, highlights of this weekend include
I reckon it was a great opening weekend, I wish Wales and Argentina had won, but you can’t have everything. Fiji day at Te Papa on Saturday, you’ll find me and the kids there, bring it on.
