Mom, When I Grow Up I'm Going to be...


We were driving to town in the car one afternoon when Jed spotted a policeman astride his motorcycle.  

"Mom, when I grow up I want to be a motorcycle police man!"   

Then Levi chimed in with his opinion, "When I grow up, I'm going to be a soldier and drive a big machine with a gun!"

"Soldiers die, Levi," Jed said matter of factly, a reflection of his cautious personality.

"Nuh-uh, Jed," Levi retaliated, "because I'm going to hold the gun--a BIG gun--and shoot it at the bad guys {insert boyish sound effect} and say, 'Goodbye!'"

I laughed out loud.  At least he has an accurate understanding of the American military.  Go get 'em Levi!  I wouldn't be the least surprised if that actually happened.  

Jed and Levi, with a bit of work, both you boys can do whatever you set your mind to do.  I have no doubt you'll make me a proud mama... because I am already.
