hiro had his 18-month-old check up today, though he is nearly 19 months. LOL he is small (knew that) but balanced, so i guess that's a good thing. we were shown how we should be brushing our children's teeth...lots of tears (not from hiro) and struggles from parents. hmmm. we brush hiro's teeth, but it's not a traumatic occasion in our house. he may not have the cleanest teeth in the 18-month-old set, but he's not traumatized, either! geesh.

there were lots of questions and now i am not sure of my baby or my ability to be a good mother to him. *sigh* would things be different back home? i don't know.
