So, with school starting, what do our difficult children plan on growing up to be? When easy child was about 4 yrs old, she was going to grow up to be a boy so that she could be a fire fighter. I had a talk with her that she could be anything she wanted to be, even if she was not a boy (or maybe because she was a girl). As she got older, plans changed to being an elementary teacher. difficult child is going to start a new car company with cars named after constellations. He is also going to open up a HUGE mall called "Downtown" with advertising, "Why go downtown when you can go Downtown". Each store front is going to state what they are selling - no more "Kohls" or "Footlocker", ect. It is going to have seperate stores for each item, "Shoes", "Toys", "Clothes". Then of course, if these plans do not work out, he will settle on being a bank examiner like his dad. I like to hear the plans of our children. For those who are not open to telling you, let us know what occupation you see your difficult child doing. I would like my easy child to take her dream one step forward to be a speech therapist - she is so good with phonics and language. After my conversation with the political party fundraiser yesterday, I think there is a place in telemarketing for all our difficult children. Just pretend you are talking to your mom or dad and get that money out of them!
