So Sorry!

Dear Readers,
I'm so sorry for not updating!
I'm in the middle of applying to graduate school and it has pretty much consumed my entire life!
As soon as I put these applications to bed, I'll be back...which should be soon!
I promise I'm not ignoring your requests for more posts. :)
Even my Korean Mom asked me what was up!

You'll hear from me soon.

Love,
Chiyo

Your blog is amazing! I had to corral my mom and grandma around today at Nordstrom Rack and they went on and on about those "Misook clothes."

It'd crack me up if you had an entry about that and St. John. EVERY KM has them in their wardrobe, haha

Hey Chiyo:

Happy New Year and hope everything is working out on the school front.

I love this blog. It makes me laugh so hard. I, too, have a foreign mother. She may not be Korean, but oh lordy she does many of the same crazy things as Korean mothers. My mother, (who is from Spain), has given me the stank eye countless times, force feeds the family and guests, loves bargains, loves Jesus, and loves talking smack. And just like you, everything is always my fault. It doesn't matter if it's something I've done, will do, haven't done, or if it's something I saw on the street, it is always my fault.

Still, I love my mom. :) Foreign mommies for the win!

Just want to say "Thank You" for ths hilarious list. I'm not a Korean son, but I am married to
a Korean Mom and both my daughter and I really get a kick out of this
list. Thanks for making us smile!
Funny while still maintaining
an appropriate sense of "Hyo";
we all love our Korean Moms,
even if they do do some really silly things.

I've been enjoying reading your blog and am looking forward to more posts.

Being a teacher in Korea I've noticed a few things about Korean moms. One thing I've grown fond of is having my kids say "my mom says don't do _____ part of the homework" so I didn't do it. It's wonderful to be overruled by the same person who goes insane when "Solar" doesn't have homework because of test day.

I also love how the kids will tell me their mom said I'm wrong about something to do with a lesson. I could tell the kids that a noun is a person, place, or thing and the next day be told that "mom says you're wrong". I usually just say "which of us speaks English, me or your mom."

I don't know if either of these will make it to a post but I hope to see a new one sometime soon.

Hey, I love this blog! It's hilarious, and so true. Keep it up!

Another thing my mom like to do is reuse pickle jars for Kim Chee and sugar. She also reuses plastic water bottles.

I don't feel so alone anymore! I remember one of my Omini's forms of punishment was for me to sit on my knees on a hard woodfloor for as long as 30 minutes to an hour! My legs would start feeling numb and I would try to very carefully shift my weight from one knee to the other with her seeing....nope, my Korean mom had eyes every where on her head and she would reach over and smack me on my bare thigh with a long handled wooden spoon!

Another form of punishment was while she was telling me how worthless I was, she would smack my leg with yet again, a wood spoon. Smacking me continously in the same spot until she felt she was done. I never made a sound, tears would run down my face. I never pleaded.....

Thank you for your blog....now I know that I am not the only person who has a crazy and frizzy permed hair Korean mom .... I love my mom!!
