I Wanna Hold Your Hand
Holding Girlie Girl’s hand.
Sometimes I take it for granted. We get somewhere, jump out of the car, and immediately grab each other’s hand. It’s almost become a habit.
However, when I was walking her to school one morning with her tiny hand in mine, I began to wonder how much longer she’ll let me do this. All around me I saw other families with older children who preferred to walk a few steps ahead of their parents. They were “too cool” to be seen being escorted by an adult.
It made me sad. Girlie Girl and I have a strong bond but even then I know the time will come where I’ll need to let her grow up and show some independence. Until then, I’m going to hold her hand every chance I get.
BTW, for those who were asking me about shoyu and mochiko, here’s a little explanation:
- Shoyu – Shoyu is a soy sauce, which is a dark brown liquid made from soya beans that have undergone a fermentation process. Shoyu is one the most important condiment used to flavor food and can be found in most grocery stores (Asian food section) or in health stores.
- Mochiko – Mochiko flour is flour made from mochi rice and is popular in many Asian countries. You can find this sweet rice flour at most Asian grocery stores and a number of online stores, including Amazon.com.
