When I grow up...

It's really late and I can't sleep but I can still dream can't I?
One of my favorite things to ask kids is what they want
to be when they "grow up". I love the responses.
"I want to be a teacher... or a princess"
"A Fio-Fito"
"I wanna be a ballerina"
"Im gonna be an artist"


I love encouraging them and helping them dream. Why
shouldn't kids dream about their future careers and
why shouldn't we encourage them? I find it sad when
people tell their kids they can't be or do something. Let
them dream because eventually they will wake up and
realize they can't be a princess in real life but they can
achieve some of their other dreams.

It is such a blessing to see a smile on a little girl's face when
you tell her she would be a beautiful princess and that she
would make a great teacher. Try it... it is amazing.

So what are your dreams?

What do you want to be when you grow up?

Me? Well, I want 100 children. :)
