Dual Employment

"You have two jobs, Momma. You take care of people, and you take care of us."

She may not have figured out yet what she wants to be when she grows up, but her assessment of what I do is right where I hope to be!

Process of Elimination

"Oh, no, Momma!" says the 4 1/2 year old.
"What's the matter, darling?"
"I don't know what I want to be when I grow up!"
"Oh, that's ok, honey. You don't have to know that right now." (I was nearly 22 when I figured it out for myself.)

She starts ticking them off on her fingers, "Ice skater? No. Fire fighter? No. Police? No."

Sometimes you have to know what you don't want to figure out what you do want, right? She's on her way!
