I know I've been a very bad blogger :) Spring has been very busy!!! Lots of projects going on… But I had to share this story…
We were riding along in the car, and Sean piped up from the back seat… "Mom, when I grow up, I wanna be a Rock Star!"
So, I said, "Cool, sound like a fun job!!"
Kathryn says "I know what I wanna be, but I can't be what I wanna be…"
So, being "uber Mom" I immediately launch into "well, of COURSE you can grow up to be whatever you want to be!!! It wasn't too long ago that Barack Obama wouldn't have been allowed to vote, but he's the president of the United States now… Of Course you can be anything!!!"
I wait a minute, and say "Honey, what did you want to be when you grow up?"
Her answer: "A Mermaid"
ummmm… well, hmmmm, OK, maybe you can't be a MERMAID… ummmm… We can take swimming lessons, and learn to swim like a mermaid :) Note to Self: I need to wait before I launch into the speech :)
So she decided… Now she's going to be either a Princess or a Fairy… Ok :)
