So I guess I should probably say hi.... Hi
About me. Well..... Firstly it is not MY fault that I am as obsessed with the boys as I am. We (my 2 little boys and I) had just come back from our holiday to New Zealand sporting silly thick, kiwi accents and phrases and this guy that I work with, it's his fault.... he kept telling me that I would love this show about these 2 dorky kiwis that sing. I had been in 'kidland' as far as TV and movies go for the past 9 years, watching pretty much Disney movies while my 2 little boys grew up. So, one night, up late, couldn't sleep, and a re-run of FOTC aired on SBS...... and that was it.
I must admit to being dissappointed I missed the first flight the first time, but I am oh so grateful I managed to get on board just in time for all these new movies, Oscar nominations and upcoming NZ and Aus tour!!! My boys are going to be very, very dissappointed that they can't go!!!
So a bit more about me? Well, I am a recently redundant wife (divorced) with 2 little boys, aged 6 (the Rhymnocerus' birthday was today) and my hiphopopotamus just turned 9 last month. They are pretty special kids as they both have taken after their dad and have Asperger's syndrome. It's has it's pros and cons. One pro/con (I haven't decided which it is yet) is my Rhymno is very musically gifted and can remember song lyrics and tunes after only hearing them once or twice. That's all fine until I realised he had heard Mutha Uckas
It all happened in the fruit and veggie section at the supermarket when he spied advocardos and mangoes next to each other.... he picked up an apple..... a lovely red delicious and sang at the top of his lungs............... (see who can fill in the blanks there!!!) One little old lady was mortified, I just nodded and agreed with her that some parents are just disgusting (pretending he's not mine)!!!
I also work in Special Ed, so my days and nights are filled with pretty special points of view, a fair amount of heartache, a lot of gratitude and an awful lot of belly laughs!!! What other workplace allows you to use the 'talking stove' as a valid conflict resolution tool and get a group of 7 and 8 year olds to sing songs about epileptic dogs!!!!
Of course there is a bit more to me than that, but that will do for now..... I have a problem though, that I need help with solving..... I have made a little 'mash-up' video and tried to upload it to Youtube, but it has been blocked because of some sort of copyright thing..... Where is a good place to upload a video to so I can share it on here? I think you guys would appreciate it.
Hoping to make some new conchordian friends on here and share some of my crazy stories with people who will appreciate them
