'I pēhea ngā mahi i te kurai te rangi nei, Huia?' te pātai a Māmā. 'He āhua pai e Mā, engari ko te whānau te kaupapa hou.'
E whakamā ana a Huia ki te kawe i tētahi whakaahua o tōna whānau ki te kura.
Ka pēhea ngā kōrero a ōna hoa ina mōhio ai rātau tokorua ōna māmā.
Ka kataina ia? Ka whakaparahakohia ia?
Heoi anō, ka kite a Huia i te maha o ngā momo whānau o ōna hoa.
'How was school today, Huia?' her mum asked. 'It was okay... but our new topic is our family.'
Huia feels too shy to take a photograph of her family to school.
What will the others say when they find out she has two mums?
Will they laugh at her? Will they tease her?
But Huia discovers that in her classroom, there are all sorts of families.
