What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

I got to go pick up this handsome young man yesterday. I took him to get ice cream and most probably spoiled his dinner. But that's one of those things a Memaw gets to do.

As we were coming home, he asked, 'Memaw, do you know what I want to be when I grow up?' I told him no, what did he want to be? He said he wanted to be a dog brusher. He wanted to give dogs a bath, clip their fur and brush them. I told him I thought that was a good job, but what about being a cat brusher too.

He then asked what I wanted to be when I grow up, and I told him I would like to be a cowgirl that ropes cows and shoots bad guys.
He suggested that instead of that, that I should be the cat brusher.

I explained that I really didn't want to be a cat brusher when I grew up, that I'd rather be a cowgirl. He said I probably should just be a Memaw instead.

It was such a cute conversation. He is so matter-of-fact about things.

What do you want to be when you grow up? I know I can't be a cowgirl, but since I don't consider myself grown yet, I should still have a few possibilities. I guess being the best Memaw right now is my most important thing to be.

I hope you are having a great Tuesday. Love one another.

That is too cute. I don't know what I want to be when I grow up either. But I did just get home from Wal-mart and found the dogs have killed a pretty good size snake. Good dogs!!! Just hope they are ok. They are pretty much just over heated and I worry about them, but I don't see any bites on them. So along with all my other "critters" I had at my house today, I guess the snake wanted to come visit also. Too bad he didn't pre-arrange it. It is still in the backyard, I am not getting it, that is what husbands are for and I have one. Plus he needs to look at it and see what kind it is.

Kids are so funny! My son once told me he wanted to be an apple tree when he grew up. And I could pick apples any time I wanted to.

Who's to say when we are actually grown up? I'm about to celebrate my 20th wedding anniversary and I'm trying to consider what I want my career to be in the next 20 years? I feel like a change! I just wish I could have the simplistic thoughts of a child - I really hate the whole responsibility thing! UGH!!

Hope you guys had a wonderful evening together - he's a cutie pie - but then all of your grandkids are absolutely adorable!
