Happy Birthday, G!!!

I can't believe it but he is now 10 years old!

This is from school...kids from March birthday.

I can recall the day clearly...went to pee at 4:45am then when I came back to bed, I felt like doing #2 but that was it! It was the contraction! He was born at 8:45am. So, I really had an easy NATURAL birth but....it was so painful.....

I love you so much!!! 

入隊!? Army

I am going to share this story both in Japanese and English...first my poor English then my poor Japanese...

Well, since I can't find a job, I was thinking about joining Army! I went to the recruting office which is located in the back of our house.

I was thinking....am I going to be like this?

But it's more like this...

But that's ok....

I can't be on active duty because...
 1. I am not US citizen
 2. I am not married and have kids

I knew we can join military with permanet resident status but my license (RN) will make me an officer automatically and to be an officer, you have to be US citizen.

I wanted to join Army (or anything) so I can live in Hawaii or Japan!!! So, doing the reserve (two days a month for $400 a month) in NYC was not my option.

Ok, so...how much do I need to become an American? $675!!!

I need a job to make that money for naturalization process! But if I have a job, I don't need to join Army!

As for marriage, I don't know. I feel that's not fair but at the same time it's understandable. We are in love and we know we will be together for ever but the whole marriage paper work thing is not our priority at this moment of our life. We don't want to just get married for me to join Army for sure!!! We need to find a way which both of us can feel bottom of my heart to show our love and commitment. We don't know how to do that yet. I am Buddhist and my BF is Catholic. United Nation Temple? Hmm....I am not sure.

 So, joining Army is not going to happen at this moment but I may think in the long run, it will pay me to go back to school and I may able to live in Japan or Hawaii! Great option! But I gotta hurry up, so I won't be too old to join Army (41 is the limit for Army. For others, it's much younger!)

abNormally Nursing

This exhibit is done by a wonderful woman who have been studying about extended nursing and she also photographed me and my little one. (but this is not me and baby's pic!!) She's not only a great student but also amazing photographer, sweet person, and beautiful woman!!!

According to her, she will have private exhibit after semester is over! I can't wait to see all her works (study and photography). Congratulations to her hard works and all the moms who nursed extensively!

Nursing wasn't easy but it was  truly very special time and attachment. (and the best nutrition for baby)

This is it!!!!

I really wanted to watch this movie as soon as it came out but I missed the chance...

I just watched it on Movie on Demand.

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa. Speechless!

I love Michael Jackson! I remember I pre-ordered his video (yes, VHS, of course) when I was in junior high school (maybe high school...) and wanted to see his dance everyday. I listened to his songs everyday...! (Even though I can never remember any lyrics)

He's so wonderful and I love him so much! (I am sure he will tell me he loves me too! That's how he is)

RIP to Michael Jackson, he will be always in my heart and my FUTURE iPhone (or Gsomething...I have the SMALLEST-cheapest-phone in the world for now).!!!!

Special gene

It runs in my family....but only in men.


My brother just went through the surgery and my sister sent me his picture...

He looks so miserable.

I wonder if it will affect my boys someday...

Get well soon!!!
