….on Wednesdays when my three-doors-down neighbor’s boy (from girl2’s kindy class) arrives home on the schoolbus after staying after school for ESL and girl2 arrives home by car from her Japanese class at the same time.

Girl2 (US mother)= extra Japanese

Neighbor boy (Japanese mother)= extra English

Sigh. Some days it feels like we’re all just running nowhere on a hamster wheel…
