My son has just turned 17...
It feels like yesterday, I was in labour room, waiting in anticipation and in pain for our bundle of joy to arrive. One can never forget Magical moments like that (even the 'moment' when I told the nurse and hubby off, for trying to comfort me by giving me a tummy massage... ).
He taught us what parenting is all about (prepared us well to become parents for the second time round)
He gives us so much joy... ~ drooling and teething at 3 months old, uttered first word at 8 months old... I was desperately wanting his first word to be Mommy but NO!!! it was 'Lowee...' for lorry.... harumphhh Boys!!!
He never stopped from then on...he would talk and talk and talk... followed by questions and questions and questions...
Talking about him and his questions...
One day, we were walking along the pavement from the carpark to the shop... and my 2 year old saw a manhole, he turned to his dad and asked
'Dad, why is this call a manhole and not a womanhole?'
I was trying very... very hard not to laugh in front of my 2 year old... Logical, innocent question but we adult took it the wrong way ... he'd 'kill' me if he knows that I blogged about this.. the big IF... he ever read my blog anyway...
Happy 17th Birthday…
1 cup sugar
4 lemongrass stalk - coarsely chopped
- Cut and diced the watermelon and place in blender.
- Blend and sieve.
- Refrigerate the watermelon juice.
- In a small pot, bring sugar, water and chunky lemongrass to boil then simmer for 10 minutes or until the syrup thicken (just slightly). Leave it to cool.
- Mix the watermelon and lemongrass syrup (note: I'd go easy with the syrup if the watermelon is sweet)
