The first day of our December started with a lunch date with my parents. My mom’s birthday is in December and my dad’s in February so we met together on a day Kaden didn’t go to work and had lunch together.
We went to Gourmet Tree in Keum Ho Dong. It’s a nice little Western restaurant that serves salad, soups, sandwiches, pastas, and steaks.
Our firstborns are born in the same year, our seconds are also born in the same year. Our third children are one year apart. I realized today, how important REAL TRUE friends are. To have people care about you and to be able to call people with a beautiful soul, your friend, is an amazing thing.
Not just growing pain, but PAINS with an S, because I have three.
This was last Saturday. Andrea’s daycare was participating in an event with the SUNG DONG GU’s private daycare association and so they were doing a little performance at 서울숲 (Seoul Forest?? I don’t know the English name for that place). Anyways, Andrea started getting car-sick on the ride there and when we got there, we didn’t have enough time to settle in, she had to go right on stage. So she started crying….
In the Korean culture, we celebrate the 100th day of a child’s life. Why? Well, some say it’s to thank the child for living the full 100 days. Long ago when there wasn’t enough food and diseases that used to spread so fast, it was hard to keep a child alive for more than 100 days. So people would make a 100th day table full of goods and food for the GODs and thank them for keeping the child healthy.
Some say that it’s just to celebrate the child’s 100th day because 100 is a good solid number.
Other’s say it’s to give thanks and to wish for the child to live until he or she is 100.
