What do you want to be when you grow up?

Sofia: I want to be a gypsy.

Me: Hmm.. that’s interesting, what exactly do gypsies do?

Sofia: People pay them to come and sing, dance, and throw fun parades all of the time.

Same question to Gabe

Gabe: Probably a pony.

Me: That’s a good one, but it may be a little tricky since you are a human and not a pony.

Gabe: Well, maybe a magician could turn me into one.

I guess I won’t have to be encouraging my kids to “think outside the box” when it comes to choosing a future career.

I love it! That is my favorite thing to talk about with my kids, because they come up with the greatest things. Macartney often says paleontologist and teacher and mom. Thatcher usually says a truck driver or construction worker, but a few times he’s said a police man, which kind of surprised me. I even still like to be asked that question! ;)

Depends on when you ask me. Is it still too late to become a dolphin trainer??
