Not sure if it's Bumbo or Bunbo but today Ryu had his first try. I bought this one for Shou and has certainly done it's dash. Sturdy things that they are though and it will be doing another child - it has done a couple of other people's kids in between!! The latest was Coffee Chiemi's son Uta-kun. They brought it back today as I had said I thought Ryu was getting ready to be able to sit in it - although I thought maybe his head and neck would need about another three weeks or so - but not too much Stevie Wonder action going on.
And all on his own just for the fans...
Post office lady came over this morning - after I had been walking, done some house stuff and made myself presentable. She was here for an hour! Everything got written out correctly, the 't's crossed and the 'i's dotted - and of course I had to inkan my life away - or rather 10,000 yen a month for the next eighteen years!! There are two courses, one that gives you 1,000,000 yen when the child turns eighteen and 1,000,000 in installments at various times before that. It also gives you a basic insurance for your child that when calculated comes out to about 500 yen a month which is jack shit. Really is quite a good scheme. Especially as Japan savings schemes at the bank are almost non existent. Anyway we got the other course that gives you the one lump sum at age eighteen of 2,000,000 yen.
After she left Ryu and I had nap, did some shopping, had some lunch and some coffee with Chiemi, taught some English, fetched some kids, fed them dinner, bathed them, put them to bed and DIDN'T YELL ONCE - in fact writing that in capital letters is the closest I have been to yelling all day. What an achievement!! Long may it last.
An add (commercial) for the African Safari Park an hour and a half away came on this morning and Shou and I had conversation about going. I asked him what animals he wanted to feed. You go round in a bus and feed the lions and tigers etc. He said he wanted to feed the elephant, ride the giraffe, and feed the sparrows!!
I will try my best. One out of the three I do believe he could do one in the back yard.
Sleepy sleepy tonight. A bit of blog hopping, a cuppa and bed.
Nighty night campers.
