This record of events was established in 2005 when our three person family was residing cozily in a downtown Tokyo studio. We have since grown to five members and after many wonderful years in the suburbs of Chicago, we've returned to Tokyo. My husband and I both work full time; my name is Jamie and I'm the author of this blog!
Hoping to speak here more in 2015.

Here's a Japanese-American cultural difference (or maybe it's just the Third Culture of Japanese Folks in Chicago Suburbs): when we arrange a playdate, we mean it. While we're having lunch and drinking coffee at the "Chiharu Cafe" the kids will be playing for at least FIVE HOURS. And then I'll still get complaints on the way home, "how come we can't play longer?!".... Gochisou Sama Deshita, Chiharu!
