2Y1M 20W4D 大忙し Busy busy...

AraTakara


帰国後たった2週間しか経っていない気がしない。毎日のように出かけていて、すっかり日本のママ生活にも慣れた。


水曜日、シノさん紹介の集まりに東大宮まで行く。コミュニティセンターの和室で、何組かの親子が集まって子供を遊ばせながらおしゃべり。昨日は図書館にアラタの会員証を作りに行き、新幹線の本を借り、午後は、さいのこで知り合ったお友達のうちへ遊びに行った。


今日は、大宮のJackにある

「子育て支援センター大宮」

へ。ここは0から2歳児を対象としたさいたま市が設置した施設(運営業務は
社会福祉法人の保育園に委託)で、平日9時から4時までオープン。利用は無料で、常時スタッフがいる。おもちゃが置いてあって、好きな時にちょっと遊ばせに行ける。子供向けの音楽クラスなども開催している。今日は0歳児のリズム体操にタカラと参加したあと、センターで遊び続けるアラタカラを両親に任せて私は美容院へ。


I can't believe it's been only 2 weeks since we came back to Japan. I take out Aratakara nearly everyday and I feel as if we'd been living here for a long time.


Wednesday. We went to a mums' gathering in Higashi Omiya. It's organised by Shino and her friends and held in a small washitsu at a community centre. Their children are around Arata's age and Arata looked enjoying playing with them. Thursday. I took Arata to a library to have his membership card. He has borrowed a couple of books of transportation. We then went to visit Yoko-san, who we met at Sainoko.


Today, we went to

child caring support centre

at Jack Omiya building. The centre is open from 10 am to 4 pm on weekdays for children under 3 and their carers. It's free of charge and there are lots of toys and books. There are small classes for children or parents from time to time. We took Takara to their 'Song time' for under 1 today. Takara enjoyed it. After that, I asked my parents to look after Aratakara at the centre and I went to have hair cut!
