One thing I learned very quickly after I came to Japan was that the fruits are super expensive here! Especially the ones that we used to eat all the time, and blueberries are super expensive too! So we hadn’t had blueberries since we came here! Wee! Blueberries!

Came to play with more sand. This part is not a sand pit but for some reason there were lots of sand here enough to play with like a sandpit! This playground has sandpit right by a slide but, this part is more smooth sand lol

今日も歩いて水郷公園へ。今日もバケツを持って☆

実はここは砂場じゃなくてほんとの砂場は滑り台の下。でもこっちのがさらさら砂で、逆に水使わないほうが一人で自由にのびのび遊んでた〜♪

前回砂場でうちがしたことを覚えていたみたいで、自分で水場に行って、バケツやらを洗いだしたDD。

Quite impressive, it’s not the play area for the mall, it’s inside one store. And there were many other stores with those facilities!

My mom took us to the new shopping that just opened in June. It was so big! I will need like 3 full days to go to all the stores I wanted to go. They have Forever21, H&M and Old Navy too! I couldn’t help but buy kids clothes at Old Navy (my mom ended up paying for it) but, I guess I shouldn’t be clinging to all the stuff that I used to do in the States, right? LOL

First went to fresh bean curd restaurants! Yum yum! Bean curd over rice.

Jolly bebe riding Anpanaman car! It’s awesome those carts are like staples at big shopping malls, it’s not only Anapanman, they had Mickey, Minnie, Pikachu, Thomas, and something else!

Last time we went to the closest playground, I realized we could use the sand pit! I didn’t think we could use it because it had a cover with locks but realized not all of the locks are used and just flip the mat and we can use the sandpit! Weeee!

We came prepared with the sand bucket set today! She didn’t care for a slide and swings and just spent the whole hour playing with sand. But lately for having people around her all the time? She might have forgotten how to play by herself, doing self directed play that I love watching her do, she kept yelling “Moma, do it~~~!!!!!” and cried. I kept telling her that I really love watching her play and I don’t wanna do the play for her.

It took a while but she started playing by herself, for a lil bit. I think I need to make some time everyday to watch her play other than her playing with adults where adults kinda lead.

DDと歩いて10分くらいの公園の砂場が使えることが発覚。砂場に布がかけてあって、フックみたいなので鍵がかけてあるから使えなくて残念だなあ〜と思っていたら、半分の鍵は閉めて無くてめくって使えることが発覚〜、やった〜!

DD、大好きな砂遊びに没頭。

最近、一人遊び、自由遊びを全くしていなくて、いつもだれかが遊んでくれることに慣れてしまったのか、公園でも「ままやって〜〜〜!!!」「でーきな〜い〜!!」の一点張り。うちも頑固なので、DDが遊ぶの見てるの大好きなの、うちはやらないよ、の一点張り返し。

諦めて、自由に遊びだしました。ちょっとだけ。自由遊びの時間もちゃんと作ってあげなくちゃだなあ。

Getting chilly in Japan too! はみぱん!
