Question of the Day #933

"C'mon Sue, let me show you my room!" A said and bounded up the stairs.

I ran after my girlfriend's four year-old as he dashed down the hall and took a flying leap on his bed and began to bounce up and down.

"You can jump on my bed too," he said.

"Well, thank you for the invitation, but I don't think that's a good idea." I looked around. "I really like your room."

"Did you see my guitar?" A pointed to a toy guitar in the corner of the room.

"That looks cool! Can you play it?" I asked.

A jumped off the bed and grabbed the guitar.

As his fingers hit the strings, a familiar rock song played. A leaned back like he was slamming a solo in front of thousands. He dropped to the floor and wiggled around on his back strumming the guitar the whole time. Then he sprang to his feet again and banged his head back and forth.

"Wow. You're really good! Maybe you're going to be a rockstar when you grow up," I said.

A stopped playing the guitar and stood up straight.

"When I grow up, I'm gonna be a rockstar, an artist, a construction builder and a spaceman," said A.

What do you want to be when you grow up?



  1. I want to be a Grandma who takes little kids to the beach, teaches them how to bake chocolate chip cookies, reads betime stories when they have sleepovers and takes them to see Mickey Mouse.

  2. I never want to grow up! I never want to be just one thing. Hopefully, I'll be many things over the course of a life: teacher, mother, writer, lover, travel channel host, gardener, cook, artist, and endless student.

  3. A "businesswoman" or a chef. I have become this
    "businesswoman" but in hindsight should have become that chef. All day long in the office all I can think about is getting home to cook. It's never too late though...

  4. Growing up is overrated :)
    Keeping the child in you is the goal.

  5. I finally found it, working for a pharma company that supports cancer research.

  6. That's so cute! I love it! What do I want to be when I grow up? I am pretty much graduated from Office Administration but it is not what I want to do. I am thinking of going back to school for baking and cooking. I love doing that. I am always making cool things at my place. One of my friends told me he thought I should be a club owner. Like run my own club. I think that would be cool too.
