When I have time for myself, I tidy up my rooms and study.
So I can’t make time for blogging these days.
For 2 months I had been worrying about going back to work sometime.
But now there is a thing that I want to do and I spend fun time and save
positive energy every day.
Then there were many incredible synchronicities and timings.
So I couldn’t be better.
My maternity leave is ending in 3 months.
When I imagine the moment when I go back to work, there are some worries.
But it must be good. Actually there is a pleasure thing next year, too.
Every life goes to happiness. Yeah, it’s true!
I took this picture in Kyoto 3 years ago.
Today I had lunch with two friends of mine at a funcy Italian restaurant. I met them at the English play group. The restaurant is funcy and gets a lot of sunshine also every dish tasted really good. We were able to be at the basement of it by ourselves. Kids and mothers were relaxed like being at somebody’s house. Both of them used to live in foreign countries and work using Enlgish. At first I was gonna using English but after all we enjoyed talking in Japanese all the time. They said “ I had a image you always talk in Enlgish. When you say something in Japanese to your kid, I think you get to speak Japanese.And it’s kind of strange to speak Japanese. “ to me. I don’t know why but I was kind of pleased or something like that. We live in Japan but we used to talk in Enlgish most of time. So it was our first time to enjoy talking in Japanese. We spent four hours together but time flied. Every experience is different from the image when you experience. Especially being mother is tottally different from my image for me. I think my baby son is cute much more than I had imagined and his life is much more important than my life. Plus I hadn’t imagined I love him that much and my feelings and the way I think changed. Now I think that's what friends who have kids are for. I wanna cherish such a happy time with my baby son and new friends. By the way I took this picture in Kyoto this time last year.
After my baby son sleeping at night it’s time for myself. Recently I do housework even though I can use time for myself. Last night I tidied up the walk-in-closet and threw away some stuff. When I was pregnant I thew away many things and clothes but we need the space for my baby son. It’s difficult to do it and I’ve been thinking about the way I make the space. Then I got a book for making the simple and clean and organized room on impulse. It says you keep the things that you get exicited and throw away other things. I decided to throw away a box of clothes from the way. I’m sure there are many things that I should throw away. So, tonight I cleaned the blind spots of the bathroom. I hardly clean the spots. So it was dirty….. Putting back the covers on it, you can’t realize where it gets clean. But I felt really nice even if I can see it outside. And I just fried croquette that I’m gonna bring it to my mother tomorrow. Potato that I cooked coroquette was potato that my father-in-law sent us. He lives in the south of Japan and he often sents vegetables us after the Great East Japan Earthquake. I appreciate it always coz I can get safe vegetables. And now I’m thinking what I cook for my baby son tomorrow. I gotta do quickly! Now it’s over at midnight. I took this picture just before. I like him kicking the cover. Coz he is boy!! The happiest time when I slip into the warm inside beside him!
I’ll cook something delish for my baby son and I want him to eat much more. So I’m plannning for it and writing down the stock of baby foods and things that I’m doing tomorrow. It’s like preparing for the party. I gotta enjoy it not to push myself not to get out of breath.
Last Wednesday I took part in a playgroup for a caregiver and children in English that Canadian friend called Amy asked me before. We meet once a week and play and sing with children. We use English only. But there is no English teacher. So it’s different from learning English at school. But it’s good not to forget English phrase. And also it was lucky to join there because I made friends with mothers. By the way these days I hadn’t been caring radio active materials in the air. Last Wendesday one of mothers said “ Takeda-prof said “Much cesium is falling now. “ “ to me. I tottally didn’t know that! And I found out much cesium has fallen since the new year. I started to be scared since I found out it. So I put a mask for kids on my babyson that it might not work and I wear a mask. Then we went shopping to the grocery store. I hung dry my laundry in. Today I thought I didn’t need to go out and we were at home all day. I lied on my stomach with my baby son and handed up like a plane together. When our eyes met, he moved his face to me and pressed his forefead to me. Way too cute!!! I’m head over heels for him already! Then we took a bath around at 6 and.he fell asleep after breastfeeding. Falling asleep after taking a bath is nice, you know. He waked up in 30 minutes and ate baby food. Then we lied on the floor. I put a picture book at my babyson’s side and I was writing a diary about him. The he rolled over and turned a page himself. I know it but he really liks picture books. I like reading books. So I’m more than willing he likes picture books! I spent happy time today as ever.
When you raise your baby, you can discover new things and you’re impressed every day. For instance when I spoonfed my baby son the day before yesterday, I heard the ticking of something from his mouth. So I put my finger in his mouth, I found some teeth there! I was impressed! And I found out why he crys a lot in the middle of the night! And yesterday he suddenly started to make the sound “Bryu ryuryuu”. And then he started to put the baby food out with the sound today. I laughed automatically! He removes his socks right away. But also he removed the leg-warmers when I realized! When he pooped, I wiped his bottom and went to wash my hands to the bathroom. Getting back there, he rolled over twice and put my camera in his mouth! There are a lot of funny things every day! It’s fun to think of it and I’m looking forward to seeing him and laughing tomorrow again.
