Spring is just around corner 💮 New school year is starting from April and we got a result of my son’s daycare from city office. I opened the envelope with trembling hands 👐 and took deep breath when I saw the document.
Yes,he’s going to our first choice daycare!
We didn’t think we could go there. Entering daycare is like winning lottery. It’s point addition score system. City office calculates our family point based on our application. For gaining points, I changed work hour from 9am to 4pm(9points)to 9am to 5pm(10points) because my husband’s point is 10 points and if my point is 9, our point is calculated from 9 points. We did everything we could do. But still it wasn’t easy to get in our first choice. My mother-in-law is a neighbor, which is good for us but it wouldn’t be good for this screening. Family who doesn’t have their family around takes high priority when we have same points.
I went to city office a couple of times to check a present state of month. Every time I was tense and desperate. It was like never end. In addition, my mother-in-law is against daycare because he’s still a little baby. She hasn’t been happy about this result😥 When people who should be the best supporter don’t work the way, it’ll be hard to get along with, but about our son, we decide everything in our way.
A week earlier before we got the result, I had meeting with my boss who always comes to near my place and we have meeting at a burger shop. At this point, I was not sure if I could be back to work but he talked about my assignment. I’m most greatful that he prepared my place in the office. Eventually I can go back to work😀
I’ll send my son daycare at 7:30am and pick him up at 6pm. Gotta busy but I’m thrilled as well👍🎉
My son likes playing with a toy in the video,which is made by Quercetti.
This toy develops creativity and concentration power. When he plays, he really focuses on it. So, it helps me, too. The highlight of the toy is making a form as he wants in many ways. In addition, each color of gear is beautiful and it impacts him.
My mother-in-law bought him a box of wooden blocks but shows no interest in it. I feel very sorry for her.
However he found his favorite toy and that’s great source for mom and dad.

Since I had my son, I’ve been trying to make homemade things. Today I made pancake without pancake mix.
Flour 200g, 1 egg, Tofu 150g, Sugar 50g, Milk 200ml
I used Tofu instead of backing powder. It’s less fluffy but it helps softness and eventually pancake has a mild taste.
This little man likes this pancake and once he eats, he craves over and over again!
When I asked him ” Do you want more? ” in English, his answer was like “Yeah!”. Maybe it was by accident 😋
This little man let me learn new things 📝 What’s next?
On October 20, my son turned 1 year old. I’m so greatful that he’s spent this year healthy and he makes me happy everyday. When I look back on my pregnancy , it’d been rough days.
He was a breech baby and ended up placing right position. I was doubted to be suffered from pregnancy diabetes but I was not. He had a possibility to have spina bifida but he was not. I was suffered from pregnancy hypertension and delivered him by c-section. During the procedure, I got transient tachycardia and had to take medicine for a month and couldn’t let him practice breastfeeding. Eventually he was never breast-feeded.
I do understand these things were paths that I had to go through to be a mother and felt like being tested if I could pass each issue. About breastfeeding, I was the only mother who gave a baby a bottle in the hospital. I was unavailable when my condition was insecurity and it got me hurt and was heartbreaking experiece’d never experienced.
Now He’s adventurous . He eats well and doing yoga himself. If I choose the best job in this world, I’d say mother. Mother is on the go from morning till night for a kid, but can’t be replaced to other. I also appreciate that he chose me as his mother ❤️
My son started to attend English class recently. Even though he’s 11 month old, he gets homework. (Mommy has to do most of it. )
This time, coloring! Look what he was doing. I liked how he picked up a colored pencil and he looked so serious.
I was little surprised that he hold a colored pencil like an adult does.
I’m sure it will take time for him to understand coloring, but I always have a fun to stay with him doing something together. Learning English is also a part of it. Now I’m trying to show him speaking English and watching TV in English together. What I want him to do is not just speaking English, but also he can communicate with people from all over the world and get more informations than informations in only Japanese. I will quit giving him this environment if he feels to be forced to do it 😊 At least I’m so greatful that I understand English🤝💕
My son likes to watch a process of cooking. When I’m cooking, he needs to hold him to let him watch cooking scenery. I made omlet with miced meat and vegies.
Dinner and he were ready to eat. I went to kitchen and looked away for a second, this happened.
He ate omlet for dad and mom and the egg was dropped. Omg 😵
He didn’t touch his dinner yet. This was planned
Last Thursday, I had lunch with mom friend at Grilled meat restaurant(Yakiniku in Japanese ). This restaurant is awesome! They have private rooms with kids play space. TV, DVD and toys are prepared.
My son was so excited about toys and Thomas DVD. Mom friend’s baby and my son had a great playdate.
We,moms took our time eating 😊 and babies stayed away from a griller, so it was safe. Many moms are negative about Yakiniku with babies. This room just make us happy😍😍😍 I definitely had such a great time ⌚
