Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
My daddy has a good friend who writes a blog like me. His blog is called My China Connection.
He writes about idiot moms. (Ed: idioms). I don’t know why anyone would say bad things about their mommies. But, anyway…
I have a connection to China, too. My gong gong and poh poh are in China. (Ed: Grandpa and grandma)
In fact I am in China now. Mostly because my mommy is here and my daddy says it’s a good time for me to come.
Daddy says it has something to do with lane, gigs, and quit sitting down. (Ed: language acquisition). Right! You try saying those words when you are only 2 years old and in one ear my daddy is speaking English and in the other everyone else is speaking Chinese!
Daddy says that we little people learn about 80% of the words we use when we are big people by the time we are just 8 years old. Daddy knows that kind of stuff about learning because of his pees hate dees (Ed: PhD) and he can still write.
I am almost 3. That means I know almost half of everything I need to know. Wow! Life is pretty easy.
Some people get a late start on learning how to say stuff in English and Chinese.
I guess that’s why they need people like my daddy’s friend at My China Connection. He can help them out.
Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
