The Kappa In Japanese Folklore

  • Kappas are legendary creatures that inhabit the rivers and waterways of Japan. They have beaked noses, shells on their back and a depression on their heads that holds water. Kappa are mischievous troublemakers. Their pranks range from the relatively innocent, such as loudly passing gas or looking up women's kimonos, to the more troublesome such as drowning swimmers and eating children. They feed on their victims by sucking their liver though their anus. They love cucumbers and if you write your name on a cucumber and throw it in the river, the kappa may be appeased by your gift and allow you to swim in peace.

Happy Birthday to your girl! She look so sweet in that dress!

I hate throwing parties too. I'd love to be the sort of mom who keeps a tidy house and wouldn't find it a big deal at all to throw a theme party, but I'm not. I'm trying to talk M. into going out to dinner with a her family and a couple good friends- but it's not easy. All her friends seem to be having big parties this year.

I love that dress with the apron!
