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.
