When my son was three or four he said, "Dad, I want to clean bath tubs every day when I grow up!" I'm sure there was a little disappointment in my response when I came to the realization that I will have no say in what he wants to do as an adult. I thought I'd given him useful tools in making his career choice but alas, I've deceived myself.
My daughter, on the other hand, simply wants to have cats. She knows that I'm allergic to cats and says that I won't be able to visit but she really wants cats. She's four (for another couple of weeks).
So, I have a burgeoning custodial tub engineer and a future cat lady. Sweet.
You've probably had this conversation at some point with your own kids. What have they told you they want to do when they grow up?
