"First I will try to be an actor. If that doesn’t work out, I will be a writer. If not that, an archaeologist. If not any of those, I will just be poor."
The 9 yr old’s career goals.
The joke’s on her. None of those make any money.
On drive to school this morning, 9 year old asks “What is the Phantom of the Opera about?” After I give her a brief description she replies “Does it have Oprah Winfrey in it?”
While cleaning up the 9 yr old’s puke, she says “Sorry, Mommy” and “Thank you Mommy.”
I hate that she is sick but I can’t help how feeling proud in that she is, at her core, such a good kid.
When I was a new mom to both my baby girls, I couldn’t wait for her to talk. I would imagine what she would say and how she would say it. This would make me that more eager for her to grow out of her initial blob state.
Hearing “Mom, can you wipe my butt?” is not exactly what I had anticipated.
