That funny boy
I’ve been meaning to post this story all day, and I’ve been busier than hell all day long, so I haven’t had the chance.
But this morning, on the way to day care after dropping L off at school, we were listening to a song called “When I Grow Up” by the Asylum Street Spankers. Sam liked the tune, and was singing that line happily. So I turned off the music, and asked him what he wants to be when he grows up.
He paused for a second, then said “I’m going to be a FIREMAN!!! I’m going to be big like Daddy!”
Because I’m a mean mommy, and also because I saw an opening, I told him that if he wants to be a fireman, then he’ll have to be big and strong so that he can help people, and the way to do that is to eat good healthy foods like fruits and vegetables.
Because, you know, The Boy never met a vegetable he’d willingly eat, except for french fries.
And then he said “Then I’ll be a leeeetle fireman, and I’ll push the button to make the siren go!”
