Love so Life Chapter 31
A three month old....!?
Yeah. They want to take care of it for a week starting next week...
While her husband is out on a business trip, // the wife got a lumbago.... (Seems like she can barely stand...)
Is that so... (How unfortunate...)
A three month old... that's just about when they hold up their own head....
Yeah. No baby-food either, yet. (Only milk)
Shiharu-chan, you haven't seen a three month old baby yet?
No! It'll be my first time!
Friend is coming?
Yep! Starting next week.
Be friendly, okay.
And with that
Then... I'll leave it to you.
(Okay,) Kids (Gather around)
This is Takahashi Akari-chan. // Be nice to her~~
Shiharu-tan, want to feed her milk? (It's about feeding time)
There's powder milk in the kitchen. Will you prepare it?
Here, your milk.
Want to drink too!!
Now, put him on your shoulder and give him a light claps // so she makes a burp.
(Will it work?)
Aoi-kun, Akari-chan is small, but not a battery. // Try and touch her, she's warm.
(And she's breathing.)
Okay, since she fell asleep, let's put her into the baby bed.
She's indeed so small
that it makes you think she's a different living being...
But in the past
there was a time I was this small too...
You don't need to give her any snacks---
Let's give her something else since that's hard and dangerous---
Akari-tan // snacks // toys // no want?
(Ehm) Akari-chan is still small, so she can't eat the snacks. // And she can't grab the toys with her hands properly, so she might get injured..
But thank you, you two. // You're nice older brother and sister.
(Okay) Hold on tight.
A- Are you okay?
Where does it hurt? (Let me see)
That startled you, huh. // Pain, pain, fly away~
The bath felt great // since it was so hot today, right?
Shiharu-tan, you won't do splash splash?
I'll do it at home, so don't worry.
Nice big brother and sister!
Can you give it to me shortly?
Put your legs one after another in these tunnels!
*clatter*, Legs are passing through the tunnel~
Now you just raise it to your stomach--
Yep, yep, good!
Me do tunnel too
Okay, let's practice.
You see, the clatter in pants. Shiharu-tan is amashing.
Passing two tunnels I was in my pants.
(Hoo. that's great)
I have no clue what they're talking about----
Raising child from year 0 on.
You sure like studying, Shiharu.
The center has a three month old baby at the moment.
So, exactly how big is that?
Do you have memories of the time you were small, Rio?
No... (Not really...)
Ah but, I remember that // my mother told me I that I would run off wherever
whenever she took me with her to shopping...
Seems I couldn't stay put back then. // What about you, Shiharu?
I'm the same. I only remember parts.
Like the warmth I felt when she hugged me...
Or how secure I felt then.
Sometimes I played sleeping, because it felt so good...
So in place of the busy mothers in this world, // I want to become a childcare worker that can give the kids that feeling of security.
I want such a dream where I become the support of others too~~
(Rio, more quiet...)
Maybe I'll try various jobs over the summer vacation <3
Well, that's only if I don't get any detention~~~!
(I just don't learn~)
You girls! // You're too loud!!
The fifth day since Akari-chan came. // The other kids completely grow attached to her---
Atari-tan, lesch play.
Play with me.
A- Akane-chan, if you cry here...
(Let's go over there and talk)
Did Akane-chan's loud cry startled her?
That startled you, huh.
Pain, pain, fly away~
I will pat her.
What a good older sister.
If you look back on it, the early years
are over in a flash
Specially because of that
Akane-chan, where are you going with that picture book?
Will read it
Shiharu-tan, zis won't hurt Akari-tan?
Ah, // Yeah!
