ゆきね６歳、かなた３歳 Yukine 6, Kanata 3
We came back from Japan a week ago. I couldn't update my blog even once while we were there! It was busy last two weeks since we went visit back and forth between Kyoto and Nagano. Though other than that, I was supposed to have a lots of time in Nagano. Now that we are already in Seattle. Time flies.
On the other hand, I feel like I have come back from Japan since it's been for a year or something. It took for a while for me to adjust to Seattle life again.
I'll update Japan trip as soon as I can. Hopefully...:p
Anyway, Yukine had her birthday today. She turned 6 year-old. Kanata tuned 3 year old when we were in Japan, right after new year, On 7th Jan. We had a party for my mom who had her birthday on 7th Feb, Yukine and Kanata in Japan, though No cake and no birthday song. So Today we had a small birthday party for two of them. Yukine will have a party with her friends sometime soon (Awwww I have to think about it....) So it was a really really small one. I and Brit wrote their birthday cards and baked an instant cake, put candles on it. It was not fancy at all, but the kids were still very happy about it. I was glad that they are very sweet kids when I saw their faces :-)
Is Yukine already 6? I can't believe it! She is a happy, sweet, kind, has responsibility, good kid. And she also has very sensitive part, sometimes she doesn't know how great she is, worry how her friends think about her. I understand that since I am too. I mean I can't be confident either. Some point, that's why she can be very kind tho, in my opinion. Good and bad.
Her dad never care about anyone else. And he is always almost very happy. So I hope that she will get some way to think thing from her dad. In addition, I feel that she is getting closer and closer to teenage girl..... I fear it.
As for Kanata, he is going to his very way. He still loves trucks and cars, not much trains according to him.He loves fighting, kicking, punching right now, by which his mom is not appreciated . I have no idea how he got the idea. He didn't see TV much, especially, I didn't let him witch fighting scene or games tho. I seriously want to put him in Karate club or something so that he can kick and punch without my stopping :p He is a big boy, he is strong. He usually doesn't listen to his mom and just run away. I chase him a lot recently.... He speaks a lot both in English and Japanese. Thanks to his my Kirino family and Japanese friends, his Japanese vocabulary is increasing a lot. His English sounds like very Yukine :p
And I have been a mom for 6 years. Still there are so many things I don't know, I bump the wall. Raising kids job is always challenging for me. I'm trying to ,at least, remember not to compare with other people, tell my kids how much I love them, have leeway.
