Month: June 2010

Boy are we learning our lesson. Not that I’m not UNHAPPY we came on our very first family holiday (note that while we have travelled extensively as a family, both throughout Australia and the world, we’ve never just set up camp in the one spot to relax and enjoy it, thus the newly embraced “holiday” status), but just that, well: – we chose a place that had tons of kid-friendly stuff to do; – we wanted to be close to the myriad of theme parks, especially seeing as our family passes expired this week; and – Trudging from theme park…

Alrighty, as promised, it’s the all-new question time! It’s the first one now, so brace yourself: here we go! Dear, darling Comic Mummy reader Isabel asks: …when something breaks why does it take so long to heal? Ah indeed. There are several points to ponder here. 1. This was not the kinda question I was anticipating i.e. one that treats me like an all-knowing, omnipresent being with answers to the secrets of the known universe. 2. In response to answering the question itself, I have no idea. 3. But neither of the above have ever stopped me before. So excuse…

There’s a whole long story about my connection to Eva Cassidy, not the least of which is that she’s an absolute dead ringer for my real mother, who passed away when I was just a little tike Anyhoo, will go into more detail on that another time, namely when I’m not on holidays with the kids and thus resigned to 15 minute internet spurts an an uber-expensive kiosk! But for now, just wanted to share this one. It kills me every time.

Here at Comic Mummy headquarters, I’ve decided that we’re gonna introduce a little tradition known as “Question Time”. Because what am I, if not modeled on Parliament? *Note to self: last sentence = strange. But I can’t do it with you! No, I’m not talking to the person next to you, I’m talking to YOU, LADY/MAN/TEDDY WITH OPPOSABLE THUMBS! So, for the next few days, I’m leaving the comments open to questions. Questions, which I shall endeavour to respond to at my leisure over the next little while. They can be: – silly; – serious; – life-pondering; – completely disconnected…

This week, at the exact moment that Australia was shedding its current Prime Minister, (well, okay, the exact half-hour bracket, but now who’s being picky), my littlest bundle of comicness – otherwise known as Cassidy – was shedding its current full-leg cast. I know, poetry in motion. But wait, there’s more! A follow-up x-ray showed that while things are definitely progressing in the right direction, his leg still hasn’t completely healed. Thus, back down to the plaster room (or as they’ve christened it at the Children’s Hospital, the “Flipper Repair Shop”) for another round of goodness, only this time, it’s…
