Good for the family.

God forbid that a woman gives birth to a child and a whole country collapses.

Welcome to the new normal, hopefully.

Yes... but Kismit is from NZ, so if you re-read the first sentence of her post...

Yes she was. And coincidentally today is her Birthday. 

And now the announcement: Wee girl born just now. A little over 7pounds.

I suspect it may be interesting, hopefully it goes well. 

I saw Jenny Morris in concert after her first child. I wanted my money back. She spent most of the time on stage rabbiting on about her new life and home land when all we wanted was some good music. I reckon she sounded half cut as well. Most of the crowd left before she finished her first set. New life is amazing, I have had kids, I know what a joy they bring, but there's a time and a place new parents...... 

Hope she keeps her head in the game. New life is a big distraction.

That's sad. Jenny Morris should have been good. 

I  hope it goes well.  Her partner is planning on being a stay at home dad.

First baby photo 

And on a side note I have tickets to go see James Reyne and Mark Seymour in January. Super hyped.

I know right! 

I was quite looking forward to it  but it was a terrible let down.

That's got to be a great help.

Love the Baby Animals.  Pretty sure my husband is the only kiwi ever to have heard them though.

I remember I saw them when I was in my 20s at the playroom on the Gold Coast and Suzi asked the crowd for a smoke and I just happened to have one and she singled me out if the crowd had accepted mine, I was pretty stoked. 

A photographer took a photo and I saw it framed in a cash converters about 5 years later. A very jealous girlfriend stopped my from buying it. 

Shame that

Congratulations on the new arrival! Everyone looks like they are doing well in the picture. I'm sure your PM will be just fine.

The baby won't be there. As stated earlier once she has seen out her maternity leave her partner will take on the main parenting role. 

But it wouldn't matter too much we already have a sitting minister who has brought her baby to work and breastfed on the job on a number of occasions. 

This truly is a free country.

understanding and accepting without conditions is certainly the sign of a progressive and free country. i must say Jacinta Arden carries her motherhood confidently in such a political environment. sadly i find it hard to imagine an Australian PM doing the same. i think we have more special interest groups and political minorities that would make such a fuss over it that it wouldn't be worth it. which brings me to the ex-Pakistani PM Benazir Butto. like wow... that women certainly had guts to do what she did in such a politically and socially restricted country. kudos to her.

Ohh can you imagine it here?

Paul Murray calling her “the top Sheila”, Alan Jones squeeling that anyone breastfeeding is disrespecting the role of PM, various shills going off on how it shows how forward/modern their party is compared to the other lot, Barnaby Joyce making a sexist comment, Matthias Corman’s programming activating and his attempting to terminate the baby in order to complete his mission from Skynet...
