...and a partridge in a pear tree...

We're off on holidays tomorrow, a fancy house by the beach with L's family - I'm really looking forward to taking the babies to the ocean.

Blog entries you haven't read in the last couple of weeks include:
- a brief summary of the hot steamy picnic in the park for the babies' first birthday, complete with a photo of the bunny cake (courtesy of Women's Weekly Kid's Cake Book). Next year their party is at the pool.
- a much longer rendition of the excellent rainbow families Christmas picnic I organised last weekend in Brisbane. We had Santa, and races,and even sang Jingle Bells. It was a lot of fun and the kids were SO excited by the whole affair. It definitely needs to be an annual event
- an apologetic yet angry entry explaining why I've taken down the previous, very cute video. It's because it has Junior's nak3d b0ttom in it, and the federal government is introducing new anti-pornography legislation, and one reading of this legislation could be that if you have ever published any nak3d pictures of chi1dren on the internet, then you are liable to be prosecuted. And I watched a program some time ago where a respected photographer - a woman - was arrested because she had pictures of her own children nake3d. In the end she was found not guilty of p0rnogralhy, but it took something like 3 years and a lot of money. My children run around without any clothes on a lot. It's 35 degrees here! But presumably it's good policy to have no bare flesh on the internet. It's funny - I didn't even register that he was only half-clad while I was taking the video. It wasn't until I looked at the clip afterwards that I realised he didn't have clothes on.

There's much more I could say about our current society's obsession with paedophilia but it will have to wait until after the Yuletide celebrations.

Merry Christmas.

(I can't remember the last time I went this long without a computer...hope I'll be okay...)

Have fun on your holidays. That is so strange that you can't show your own kids' bottoms on your mommy blog.

Looking forward to these other posts. Happy holiday to you and I agree that the nekkid chil'ren bit is getting just a little insane.

The govt is definitely obsessed with paedophilia. It's bizarre.

Btw - it's great to read the blog of another local lesbian mum! We're also in Brisbane, with an almost teenage boy. :)

Australia. The Nanny State.

Yes, don't get me started on a rant. Like KRudd could raise my children better and have more of an idea of what horrors are on the internet than I would....
