25 Dec: Japanese Phrase of the Day! What’s that smell?

“What’s that smell,” could be said two very different ways! Ha! I hope the GOOD way was used yesterday for Thanksgiving!
But the bad way… Man, have you ever burned popcorn in the microwave? That smell is the worst!! A friend of mine had to throw their microwave away after one of their kids burned popcorn in it. They couldn’t get the horrible smell out—no matter what they tried!

Whichever way you use this phrase, add it to your daily conversation!

17 Nov: Japanese Phrase of the Day! Don’t walk in the puddle.

Have you seen that video of the kid jumping into the puddle, but he goes head under. It’s totally a special effect the dad did, but when my boys saw the little clip, they became convinced it was real! Now the boys are scared that every puddle is a sink hole. It’s the funniest thing. I wonder how old they will be before they get over their fear of puddles. Use the phrase, “Don’t walk in the puddle,” the next time it’s raining, and then show them the clip, and you may never have to worry about it ever again! 😂

03 Nov: Japanese Phrase of the Day! You are a great singer.

Okay, no one will ever be telling me, “You are a great singer,” because that is definitely not a talent I was born with! Ha! Currently the only person who likes me to sing is my baby, which is totally fine by me. Him and I get to have our special singing time together… until his ears mature! How about you? Can you carry a tune or are you betting in the back of the choir? Haha! Use this phrase the time you can honestly say, “You are a great singer.”

31 Oct: Japanese Phrase of the Day! We read together every day.

If you’re someone who considers audio books “reading” like I do, then I’d say, we read together all day long. 😜 Darian is always turning on an audio book for him and his brother as they do their daily chores, walking around listening to an audio book, or listening to one before falling asleep. He can’t get enough of them! Can we just give a shout out to the first person who thought of the idea that we should record books to listen to?! It’s the best. I love both physical books and audio books, but I know many have a preference. What do you prefer: audio or real book?
