My Kids Want to Grow Up to Be...
My then 4 year old daughter came up to me this summer and said, "Mommy! I know what I want to be when I grow up?" "Oh really? What?" "I want to be just like you! A Mommy!" Now, isn't that just the greatest compliment in the world?

My now 12 year old wanted to be a "yellow firetruck" when she was about 4. Now she's just happy Hillary Clinton wasn't elected President because there is still a chance for HER to be the first female Prez!
At 3 (now 4) my girl had many ideas of what she'd be growing up: doctor, vet, gymnast, garbage truck driver, chef, and more. When I asked how she'd find the time to do it all, she responded self assured: "Mommy, I'm a girl, I can be anything I want!"
