Christmas letter

2009.12.23.02:40

Suddenly, it's Christmas time again.
I was surprised to see that I haven't posted anything to this blog since last March I've been busy, so has my CLM! (cute little monster)
I have so many things to write about and so little time to sit in front of my PC... What a shame!

Anyway, I somehow managed to write a Christmas letter to one of my friends in Canada. I hope this will lead to another posting in the near future.

How are you and all your family doing?


First of all, let me apologize for not writing to you for such a long time. My English is getting lousy and every time I write some, I feel like googling the words to see if the expression really exists. Well, this letter I AM going to mail for sure!


Cordy became two last August. When we celebrated his very first birthday last year he didn’t seem to realize anything. This year, he was able to sing “Happy Birthday” with us, thinking the song was made for him. When we tried to sing the song on someone else’s birthday, like his daddy’s, he still sang it with his name in it.


I never thought 2-year olds could do so many things. Cordy runs, speaks, dances, sings a song, and even tries to cheat. When I catch him reaching for something he shouldn’t touch, I call his name in a low, scary voice, and he turns around and says “Here’s your mobile phone, mommy!” as if he was just trying to get it for me. (But I know he wasn’t!)


I’ve been working part-time since Cordy became one. I started to look for a job around his first birthday, but he was so small and I couldn’t imagine how I would feel being away from him every day. However, at the same time, I desperately wanted to do something other than just take care of him. I was having a hard time weaning him off my breast. He needed to start eating food by then, but refused to eat anything and kept crying until I gave in.


Fortunately, I found a part-time job as an in-house translator, and it solved all my problems. Cordy’s weaning went incredibly smoothly as he was physically away from his mother during the day. Also, Cordy went to daycare only on my working days for the first six months, so I guess I didn’t miss out much on his dramatic progress in becoming a toddler from a baby. Cordy now goes to daycare from Mon. to Fri. so that I can enjoy some totally baby-free time every two days. What a treat!


So far, I’ve been a very happy mom. Every day, Cordy surprises me with his newly learned words. Aki comes home late every night as every other Japanese businessman does, but has been a perfect husband and father.
I hope to bring Cordy to Canada to meet you two some day.
