To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Score one for New Zealand!

Many people have children. Many are good moms. Many are ridiculous.

Sadly, here in the U.S. we tipped over the fulcrum of reasonable and right, we are WAY too focused on being politically correct that we don't really stand up for anything it might hurt someone's feelings.

But, not New Zealand! I might move there!

There is this little nine-year-old girl whose parents SERIOUSLY named her Tulula Does The Hula From Hawaii. Yep, that's right. That's her whole name! Tragedy!!! But, some decent judge MADE her parents change her name because it was cruel! Hello?!? Who does that? Well, apparently a lot of New Zealanders... because there were also these names (which were also banned - Thank Heavens) "Fish and Chips", "Yeah Detroit", "Keenan Got Lucy" and "Sex Fruit". But, unfortunately he let the names "Number 16 Bus Shelter".

All of this is so disturbing to me!

So disturbing.

People are crazy!

All of the parents of the aforementioned children should NOT have given birth. But, if they HAD to do so, they all should have given their kids to me! I would have given them decent names and cut their sandwiches in half, wrapped the sandwiches in a napkin and put them in a ziplock and written their cute names on the bag encircled by a heart!

I actually remember watching you wrap one of my sandwiches for me and I loved it so much I have adopted your technique for my own children. Thanks Ali, for making me be a better mom! However, I have been completely missing the heart thing so I guess there is room for improvement! :)
