My husband made Soba to his ex-colleague's family. His wife and two children came to pick it up; coincidentally I was about to do my English class for a young girl who you might have seen in my previous posts. We got togather in his hobby room and spent a time for a while. I was happy that two children seemed to have a nice time. My husband loves to have guests especially after his retirement. He loves chances to have kids visit his room, even snacks and ice-cream are always ready especially for neighborhood's kids.
At times, at a loss how to be with little kids,
Our next-neighbor's seven-year boy and four-year girl sometimes knock lightly at the back door (really cute manner) and visit us. However little kids tend to get carried away, not all of them know the decency at other's house. It is totally different from teaching English for Junior-hi or High-school students. If I show irritated attitude, they stop comimg or starting behave better. Although I love them and the feeling some kids love me back or respect me is GREATLY REWARDING for the person who wasn't blessed with a child, it is easier for me to think disciplining isn't my job when facing restless young students. Funny that I'll never write this in Japanese. Well, I'll try to be honest to my feeling for the little cute guests within the bounds of common sense. Sometimes I can be a tiny stern old lady, haha. Love hubby who Loves kids,
