Thanks for all your comments in the post I wrote about my father in-law. While the commentors were all female (as per the commentor’s name displayed), I hope those busy fathers, Japanese or not would have a chance to read it and rethink their relationship with their children. Honestly, I would want my husband to read that post not because of what his father told me but because he, sometimes, is guilty of the same. Sometimes I feel he puts a lot of priority to his work beyond my understanding that he lacks the time for his only daughter.
Anyway, I’ve also received comments as to what happened to Pristine’s forehead in the last photo where she bade goodbye to her grandfather. No she isn’t injured or something – thanks so much for all your concern. What she has on her forehead is a FEVER REDUCING COOLING SHEET- just one of the Japanese items she’s recently discovered and amazed with. I’ve bought some just in case she gets feverish during our travel and she found it and put it in her forehead even though she has no fever.
