Lillian’s preschool did an exercise the other day with all the kids. They asked them what they wanted to be when they grow up, how many kids they wanted to have, and what their parents did for a job.
Lillian’s answer: I want to be Ariel so I can dive into the water; five kids; and the best – my daddy works in Seattle and my mommy cooks dinner.
Although her perception might be that I cook dinner when she would like me to be playing dollhouse with her, I do love that she knows I am doing it and someday, we will do it together.
Some of the answers were really quite funny. My favorite was: My mommy is a doctor and my daddy lays by the pool. Somehow I am not sure that child’s parents were too thrilled with the BIG posterboard relaying this information.
