Australia is awesome http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,22741465-421,00.html
When I was 13 and I had nothing better to do, I spent my free time loving all things Australian. All of my favorite music was Aussie, especially INXS. I loved the landscape and the history, even though its filled with bad things, like ours. I got so I could tell accents apart. I went to the Embassy just to see it. I've never been down to the actual country, but I hope one day to get the nerve (& $$$) to go that far on a plane. Then today I read that they have banned routine circumcision of newborn boys in their hospitals. Yes! They are awesome. Lots of happy, whole little guys will be coming home there, with much less risk of MRSA too. Hopefully the US will soon be as enlightened as Australia (and Europe, South America, Asia, England, Canada...)
- I'm just a mom in the world. A crunchy Catholic mama of 6 trying to make sense of it all and stay positive. 5 boys here & 1 in heaven. One awesome man who I get to grow old with. I help new moms breastfeed. I`m happy. I don`t go to shows or dance clubs every night but I would if I could. Where`s the nanny? When I see her she`s SO fired! One of my boys is super sweet and sensitive, another one is a holy terror. I learn a ton from all of them daily. Like Nigella says, as any parent of small children knows,there comes a point in the day where you can`t go any further without a drink! I love cocktail hour. I`d like nothing more than to be with my family and some good friends surrounded by tropical plants drinking a margarita listening to the Eagles. I don`t care about trendy, I like that grungy 70`s vibe.
