I’ve been going to get this posted for days now and Susan Adcox’s great post this morning entitled “Kids say the Darndest Things, Edition Three” finally got me motivated! This is just such an Amarism!
Amara’s Mommy and I were talking the other day about some homework Amara had been doing and one of the questions was “What do you want to be when you grow up? And why”. Amara told her Mommy she thought she wanted to be a Fashion Designer. Her Mommy asked her why?
“I just think I have a good eye for fashion.”
I thought this was really cute and so typically Amara — kind of like her feet that just know how to dance. But
Me: “That isn’t what she told me she wanted to be when she grows up.”
Jenna: “What did she tell you she wanted to be?”
Me: “A librarian.”
Jenna: “Did she tell you why she wants to be a librarian?”
Me: “No, I just assumed it was so she could be surrounded by books because she loves to read.”
Jenna: “Nooooooo, it’s because she likes the little short skirts and sweaters that librarians wear!”
That’s MY grandchild! I was suspended from Catholic school for 3 days when I was a senior for wearing a shirt that was too short and daisies in my hair!
