Amara Says the Darndest Things

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!

      Catholic school in the late 60s and Sister Thomas Francis was very strict! Remind me to tell you the story about Grad Night at Disneyland!

    LOL so cute! Since Amara looks darling in everything she wears I suppose she has a wide range of careers to look into!
    In high school we were required to have our uniform skirts hit below the knee. It was easy to fix that by just rolling the waistband! If we saw Sister Principal coming, we’d just roll it right back down again!
    Also…LOVED reading your “roll call” of cats this AM! Between you and Amara, that’s like a “colony” of them or something right? Just like over here!

      Oh the memories of Catholic High School. Our skirt was required to touch the floor when we knelt down. Our VP was Sister Thomas Francis and I can still hear her yelling down the hallways “Young Lady! Is that skirt rolled?”

    That is funny! I think its great that Amara can set a new standard for librarian’s fashions. I don’t think of short skirts and librarians together either. As cute as she is I think everyone would want to be like her and follow suit 🙂 thanks for linking with me.
