My firstborn is 14 today and an incoming freshman high school this fall! Can you believe? She’s undeniably taller than me now, although she doesn’t like the idea of being “tall”. She’s smart, compassionate, stylish, and still very much in love with Japanese culture. One time during her gymnastics class, someone asked if she’s Japanese and she was thrilled! She’s definitely growing up to be a wonderful young lady. We always push her to perform to the best of her abilities but we’re very proud of her. Happy birthday Mica!
