Darn It, I Knew That Being Illiterate Would Get Me in Trouble Someday

Remember how I was so pleased with myself a few weeks back when I found that board book featuring one of my dad's favorite cartoons, the blue Chinese cat? It turns out he's a Japanese character called Doraemon and my dad had the comics in translation. And the board book that I bought? Yeah, Japanese too. I knew that being basically illiterate in Chinese would get me into trouble someday! Fortunately, the story is pretty obvious from the pictures, and Q loves it anyway. The picture above is Doraemon in his World Cup gear, from J-List.

Here's Q, fast asleep on SwingDaddy's shoulder at dinner. Just like the old days, when all he did was sleep and eat. Now he eats and eats and eats!

I never knew that Little Ding Dong's name was in Japanese. Interesting....
