Yuko from Yokohama in Upper West Side, NYC & Capitol Hill, Washington D.C.
Hi, my name is Yuko and I’m from Yokohama.
Currently, I live in New York City with our two kids.
We enjoy living in NYC. I am always out and about with my girls; 3 years-old and 7 months-old. I feel weird about the term "stay-at-home-mom" because we are literally never home! We love all the fun places the city offers; museums, parks, libraries, pop-up exhibitions, zoos, botanical gardens... the options are limitless!
We are a homeschooling family. I had a traditional Japanese school life in a big city but I want something drastically different for my kids. I've been trying to give my girls as much outdoor time as possible so they won't be scared of bugs and dirt like me! Since we do not have a good old American backyard, we visit Central Park and enjoy the nature there. We love being a part of Free Forest School there.
Aside from parenting, honestly I haven't been able to do much for myself... I do enjoy going to barre class when I manage to get up early enough in the morning. Otherwise, the best form of my entertainment has been limited to Netflix and Hulu for the past 3 years. But I am a pretty happy mom!
