As we opened the door to the house this evening, coming in from her school/hoikuen:
me: hun, i’m so proud of you–your English is stronger and stronger everyday.
You love love reading! Everyday it seems you are using a new word,…
girlie girl: yeah, but i’m not proud of you because you don’t have Japanese.
wah wah wah. probably a great idea if she sees me actively working at expanding my Japanese
& expanding my brain. or i’m thinking this thought she shared may/will only get worse as she gets older.
how’s that for motivation? thud.
