What do you want to be when you grow up?

So I had the conversation with Walker at the ripe age of six.  I simply asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?  You know you can be anything that you want to be."

Here’s the list

1. Police Officer

So can I assume that he will be a law abiding citizen?  I am keeping my fingers crossed.

2. Cowboy

Well… as most of you know… cowboys are cool and quite often cute.

3. Karate Teacher

He has never taken a lesson in his life but… as he recently showed me… he made himself a karate teacher’s licence.  Ummm… does this mean that being a professional forger is in his future?  Goodness I hope not!!

4. A Diver

Don’t know where the heck this came from but at least sounds interesting.

So I ask the rest of you parent – what do your kids want to be when they grow up.  Go ahead and put yourselves in that category.  I am still trying to figure it out myself.

  1. When the Blue Jay was abour six or seven, it was teacher, Tim Horton’s (big coffee shop chain in the Great White Up) worker, bus driver and cashier at Zellers. Okay, she didn’t know the word cashier but it was something like take the people’s money. The thing was she wasn’t saying either/or, she meant all four. At the same time.


  2. Update on Abby’s Career intentions: This morning she informed me:"I want to read lots of books on animals and dig up dinosaur bones."So, is that a Librarian/ Reasearch/ Paleontologist? And isn’t that going to mean travel? I don’t think my baby needs to travel away from me.


  3. At any one point you could hear – doctor, astronaut, racecar driver and the newest from Eric (after seeing one flyover the parade his sister was in) was a Blackhawk helicopter pilot. I don’t think he realizes he has to be a soldier for that – don’t tell him that it would freak him out. Of course the first three would apply to either child. Grace B. wins the Daytona 500!! Sound reasonable???
