One night, my youngest daughter was excited.
She said, "Mom, Takumi at my nursery school
doesn't know any English."
I replied, "Oh, really? Get your pajamas on. "
She continued, "He doesn't know white is shiro in Japanese,
black is kuro and water melon..."
I also continued, "Bee, you might catch a cold.
Then you won't be able to go to your lovely nursery school. "
Ignoring me, she added further,
"Mom, water melon means melon in Japanese,
doesn't it? No? Itmeans suika?"
"Anyway, hurry up and put on your pajamas,"
I also added further.
"Oh my... How many times do I have to tell you?"
However, to my surprise
it seemed that she didn't hear anything I said.
She said to me, "I wonder if I'm deaf.
Pon and I can't hear you sometimes, Mom."
I don't think my daughters are deaf.
