14 years ago, I was pregnant with you. Your mom feared that you might be abnormal. I took an antibiotic for my Urinary Tract Infection then, and I was not aware you were inside me. I religiously prayed to our dear Lord that you be healthy. And God listened to my prayers. Aside from giving us a healthy boy, he even showered you with intelligence, patience, and kindness.
I remember those moments when you invented your toys and even relayed to your mom how your teacher chose you to represent your class and even the school in competitions. You made us proud parents. And you continuously make us proud.
Young Inventor of Catapult
May 6, 2013, 11 years old
Wikipedia says that a catapult is a device used to throw or hurl a projectile at a great distance. This is without the aid of explosive devices—particularly various types of ancient and medieval siege engines.
The best example of a catapult is used in an Angry Birds game. It is the slingshot used to attack the pigs even of greater distance. The literature says that a catapult has been used since ancient times. And it is proven to be one of the most efficient resources during warfare.
And so, with nothing much to do in the house (the boys might have been too bored playing online games and PS2), Firstborn made a catapult model.
