When I Get Big

Actual Conversation with LaLa-

LaLa- When I get big I am gonna be a fireman.
Me- Really?
LaLa- Yeah or maybe a police man.
Me- You could be a doctor!
LaLa- But that is a BIG JOB!
Me- Yeah it is.

*few moments of silence*

LaLa- And when I get big I am gonna get new parents too.

Gee thanks kid.

omg that cracked me the hell up.

Michele said...

We wouldn't want her to have a BIG JOB. This was too funny.

Keep persevering. Maybe talk about how dangerous it is being a policeman or fireman, and casually make remarks about how great your doctors are, what nice cars they have, etc etc.

Trust a child to have no reservations in telling them what they really think about life :-)

Oh god, if that were only possible I would have done it a long time ago. She is really cute Kat.

Aunt Juicebox said...

My daughter used to tell me that I could live with her forever, and if her husband didn't like it, she'd kick him to the curb. Sigh.

honeywine said...

LOL How dare you have high expectations! Dammit woman!

honeywine said...

Wuuu...next time offer her "crack ho" as a profession and see if she bites! :D

Big Mama Cass said...

Captain Dumbass said...

Want to trade kids for a couple weeks? Then they can see that it just doesn't get any better.

Pollyanna said...

Wow, that stings!

Oh, well, she'll learn the cold, hard truth later - you're pretty much stuck with your parents. Jokes on her :)

Jenni said...

Jen said...

Erin@TheLocalsLoveIt said...

Politely explain that getting new parents is like getting a new teacher. Sometimes the next one isn't any nicer than the last one.

I needed that laugh! Give her a little thank you hug from me :o) She probably doesn't mean it...

Foursons said...

Cute conversation! I came over her from Mimi's blog, He and Me + 3.

I was wanting to start a Mr. Linky type post in which I write a letter. Turns out you already do that! Would it be OK if I do it on my blog too. I don't want to steal your idea, but honestly I didn't know you had this going on. I will call it something different.

Catharine Withenay said...

Oh yes - my two are trading us in at some point too!

Rob said...

LOL. Sounds like my son.

Miss Grace said...

Snap, you're getting traded for fancier models?
