The other day I noticed Naomi was able to turn the light switch on by herself. But until recently, she couldn’t reach the switch and always asked me to turn it on for her.
In all this time in lockdown, I’ve been home with my children. But I was too busy to notice that Naomi had got taller!
Children grow up so fast. Before I knew it, they become capable to do various things.
Life is hectic. But I’d like to be more present so I won’t miss the process of my children growing up.
Here is this week’s cartoon.
Artist and children’s author Noriko Matsubara documents her family's experience during COVID-19 lockdown with relatable cartoons.
