Bamboo shoot Soup

Winston is at the stage of changing teeth and one of his front teeth is swinging and still hanging there. I cooked bamboo shoot and bone soup Saturday night. The bamboo shoot was hard at the bottom and tender on the top. I gave Winston the tender parts to eat and told him: You are little now so you eat the tender parts. Daddy is strong and he can chew the hard parts. But when you grow up, it is your turn to eat the hard parts. Mom and Dad will be too old to chew.
Winston tried the tender pieces and said: We will not cook bamboo soup when I grow up.
I asked: Why?
Winston: Because I don't want to eat the hard parts.
Still Wondering to feel sad or laugh, I asked:Then what would we cook for soup?
He said: Bean Curd Soup.

~Very tender and nice~


Lesson: Never expect or ask for feedback from kids.


And think of what to cook for our elders.

I can say here is everyone is so unique by himself, so as your son. The way he look at the thing from his perspective, entirely different from you. His wisdom telling him why let someone else suffer, if you can make everyone happy. My answer to you is you should laugh because God is so blessing that He give you this wise son. Congratulation to you and your husband. Therefore, excellent solution is Bean Curd Soup for three of you - tender and nice. Make sense and logic.

"Why let someone else suffer, if you can make everyone happy." I will put this to my collection of words of wisdom.

True,we should look at things from the positive side. At least, he let us eat. Ha!
Thank you.

童言童語的可愛,不要說Winston會這樣,我家的Angus也會。Mandy說:以後你們生小孩,媽媽不幫你們帶小孩,Angus說:媽媽不帶就請阿媽帶。聽了我和Mandy也都啼笑皆非。

Hi June,
I never cease to learn amazing things from my little ones and getting a good laugh as well. It's part of the joy of motherhood.
