Pee-pee Attack, Shiso!?! and a New Blog!

1. I've been gradually getting into the swing of being a mom, the feeding, the bathing, the sleepless nights and the pee-pee and poopy diapers. I guess I was a little bit too cavalier about the diapers though because a few days ago when I was changing Rin, he let fly with a little yellow stream right all over me, the mat and the futon. Now I make sure to put a wipe down over his little equipment before initiating the diaper-change.

2. It's that time of year again; time for Pepsi to come out with a new weird limited edition summer beverage, and this year is a topper. They've made shiso soda. Shiso is a green leaf with a bit of a pungent flavor that's apparently called perilla in English, though I've never heard of it (and neither has the spell-checker, apparently). I'm a big fan of shiso in all kinds of dishes, (especially cold shiso and pickled plum spaghetti), but I never would have thought to make a soda out of it. Give it a try if you get the chance, I guarantee you're in for quite an experience!

3. Since all my relatives are clamoring for pictures of Rin, I've decided to make a new blog just with pictures of him which will hopefully be updated daily.
