Bright up and early today.
We’ve got to be out the door early today.
Got to switch different trains and get on a bus today.
Off to Fujiko·F·Fujio Museum
Time to hop on the Ding Dong Bus – using the Suica card it’s actually slightly cheaper to ride
Doraemon is everywhere.
Not a lot of seats but fit everyone waiting in line
Fun and playful already
This is Daddie’s childhood
They gave us instructions prior to opening the doors to the museum
Pulling the lever up and down will bring this boy up from the well.
The faster you do it, the quicker he comes out
We took some sticker pics
Galen was very lucky
He went to put money in the 扭蛋 machine, and got all the characters he wanted in first try at different machines.
And now we’re going to watch a short film
It will be Aiden’s first time in the theaters
How did he do?
Great! It was a very short test to see how he would do
probably about 15-20 minutes
But it will be a while before Aiden goes to a long movie
Well at least Aiden knows him as Ding Dong and not Doraemon
We were in a rush to get to the museum this morning that we hadn’t had breakfast.
Super hungry now!
But just a few more snaps….
Aiden isn’t into Christmas at this time.
He still doesn’t know what it is.
Or who is Santa.
Daddie’s delicious Latte.
But someone was be naughty.
And from that point, the meal was on and off tantrums.
The meal was actually alright.
Surprisingly the tastiest item was the tofu skin, and normally I don’t like to eat it.
Now time for the outside tour/pics.
After the little tantrum, Aiden is now back to normal.
He was even posing the signature Asian V sign.
He kept hiding behind the statue.
I told him to imitate the pose, but he didn’t even try.
He must have thought it was cute though!
But it’s dirty…..
But he wouldn’t take a picture with Daddie.
He wanted to be free and not be held.
Seriously I felt every moment could lead to another tantrum.
He’s definitely been naughtier since we got to Tokyo
If we say don’t, he has to do it.
And unlike in the States where you might have a few other kids throw a tantrum, he was the only one there that did it.
Made more noise than a baby.
Good thing he is so cute… and he’s my son
Or else we might come back without him (I can say things I don’t mean from time to time right?)
Rough day indeed.
Here he had yet another trantrum.
It has to be his way or he begins to cry/scream.
Easy to lose patience…
But even then, he still had tons of fun.
Even then, we’ll remember the good times too
But can’t erase those bad ones either.
Finally the small crowd has dispersed.
Aiden didn’t want to be in front of Ding Dong, but butt to butt.
He’s a proud little one.
And as stubborn as they come.
I was too busy catching all the hidden statues around the area.
And Aiden wanted to go around in circles and see each item, again and again.
He wanted to close that pink door behind.
But of course he can’t.
But he really wanted to.
I don’t know if he was too excited or too tired, but…..
Time out again!
Rough day for Aiden, which makes it a pretty rough day for us too.
I was kind of glad we were done at the museum.
At least we can try and wipe the slate clean and try again for some good behaviors in the latter part of the day.
Aiden kept saying bye to the bus and bus driver.
I thought it was sweet.
Time to say bye to Ding Dong.
