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.
I don’t want for much. My mommy and daddy pretty much take good care of me.
I have all I need and so far that’s good enough for me.
But if I could want something, I might want a cutting board.
My daddy’s student, Josie owns the web site Mac Cutting Boards. And she invited me to guest blog at her site.
So I wrote about What Little Girls Look for When They Buy a Cutting Board.
I don’t much cooking, other then pretend cooking.
And to do that I don’t need anything other than a pretend knife and a pretend cutting board.
But what I wished for in a cutting board if I really were to get one was something shaped like a pony or a princess or a fairy or my daddy.
Or how about a cutting board shaped like China? But I don’t know what they would do with Taiwan. Taiwan would keep falling on the floor.
I think making cutting boards out of stuff that would otherwise be thrown away is a great idea. My mommy teaches me about being green. Not quite the same but still a good idea.
China will have to learn this lesson, too. China needs to learn how to use material over and over again.
Maybe this is something I will teach them when I grow up.
Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.
