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.

me: oh…..


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.
