'The Pom' - a new breed of animal....

Recommended Posts

Just had to share this with you all! We are moving out to Australia in June (my partner is already with you, in Canberra) with our two children. My daughter is 5 and is very interested in Australian life, partly because of the impending move and also because she recently studied Australia in school. This evening I read her the usual bedtime story and played our usual 5 minute 'guess the animal' game. Following several questions I had ascertained the animal she was thinking of was small, grey, lived on land and was wild. I guessed at a squirrel and a few others and met with a resounding 'NO!'. So, I gave up. What could this animal be? 'A pom!' she announced proudly. 'A pom?' I enquired 'Yes, they live in Australia, sometimes you call them pom-poms'. :jiggy:Can't wait to see the country finally, though I'll keep a look out for the Poms.....

LOL children, they are so sweet and innocent.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.
