my son is asleep
it’s time to enjoy a cup of coffee
on my half seat
Flying a long distance trip with a toddler is nothing but constant battle to make him stay in his seat. We took a flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo which is eleven hours, and he wanted explore everywhere in the airplane. I was a peak of exhaustion by taking care of him, and finally he fell asleep. Good thing is that the person next to him wasn’t complaining (Thank you!) and I had a time to sip a cup of coffee in peace. A quiet moment during the flight with a toddler.
It’s wake up time!
I love going back to Japan with my son and spend some time with my parents. However, I never like jet-lag. Adults can understand the time concept, and we try to adjust time difference. On the other hand, children don’t have the concept of time nor effort to adjust to local time. As a result it’s time to have a breakfast and play when they wake up, which can be 2:00am. Dealing with Jet-lag is just harder with children.
A Luggage is to carry a kid
A stroller is to carry a backpack and his favorite piggy
And a kid’s hat is on my head
Traveling is fun, but traveling with “kids” could be challenging in many ways. One of things parents have to deal with is languages. My son loves to ride on a large luggage instead of on a stroller. He loves to wear a hat but for two minutes. Ending up, I wear his small hat, carry my son on the top of the luggage, then put a backpack and a piggy on the stroller. Traveling is so much fun!!
Daddy, I’ll share the milkshake with you
Daddy! Go faster!
We have a wagon to carry stuff to go to beach or to farmer’s market. It’s super useful and we put everything in that.
And not only putting bunch of stuff in the wagon, my son wants to ride on it, of course.
mommy is not a superhero
she gets sick, sometimes
and gets to stay in bed
Mother’s life is incredibly busy, and there is no time to stay in bed. And overworking makes mothers sick. However, this is the time mother finally gets to stay in bed. All mother needs rest, but it’s so hard to get it with kids and work.
A Little baby crow
Where is your mother?
We found an injured baby crow on the ground. He got blue eyes, and one of his legs seemed to be broken. Other crows were making noise around him and they were probably worrying about this little one. But they weren’t able to do anything to help him. Finally, we brought him to a veterinarian and they took the little baby crow for necessary care. We all hoped he get better and fly back to where he belongs.
Round, round and Merry Go round
Go round with your smile and dream
Merry Go Round is the things to do for toddlers. My son is on a merry go round at least once a week and does at least two rides at a time. Merry Go Round (Carousel) has been around one hundred fifty years, and it gives dreamy moment to kids – and moments of rest to parents.
A little handsome man with
red converse and a borsalino
I bought first pair of converse for my son when he was around 2 years old. He loved it and wore it everywhere. The shoes and a borsalino straw hat made him a fashionable little man.
Aren’t they too big for you?
Kids love wearing adults shoes. Shoes are too big and clumsy to walk for them.
But they smile proudly with big shoes.
