Phew – I say it every year, but this time of the year is crazy busy! It kicks my butt every time. I’m back at work (I run an after-school program at a TK-8 school) and the last month has been tons of prep and yesterday was our first day of school. Hideko is also an educator so work has been super busy for her as well, and smack in the middle of it all is Yuki’s birthday. I seriously wish I could change her birthday – maybe June? July? Even early August would be fine – she’s too young to notice, right!?
Well, somehow we have a 4 year old now. It’s pretty unbelievable. I had this idea last year to do an interview with Yuki when she turned 3 and then we’d do it every year and we could look back and see little snapshots of what she was into or some of her thoughts at the time and how she changed over time. I never actually got around to doing it last year, but I was pretty determined to do it this year. So I came up with some general questions to ask her and then I wrote up her responses exactly how she answered. I’m really excited to do this with her every year! And eventually with Kaya too.
