What do you want to be when you grow up?


My sister has a lot of work to do around her house.  I volunteered to watch her kids for her while she got some things done.  As soon as work was over, I hopped in my car and drove the hour it takes to get to her house. 

Abby, my three year old niece, has a personality.  She’s pretty stubborn, definitely sassy. 

I decided that I wanted to have a Bill Cosby and have a little show of my own, asking her a bunch of questions.  I asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up and here’s our conversation:

Abby:  SUPERMAN!  (she says this pumping her little fist)

Me:  What does superman do?

Abby:  (looking at me like I’m crazy)  Mommy, what does Superman do?

Sarah:  Superman saves people honey.


Adam arrives home and I ask Abby again.

Abby:  I want to be Superman.

Me:  Why?

Abby:  I want to be Superman and save people.

It would be pretty awesome if our three year old dreams would come true and we could be super men and women and go out and save people, wouldn’t it?

My memories are something that I treasure. Some memories I want to capture in writing because I want to be able to share them from generation to generation, others are just something I want to keep in my heart. Whether it's something that just happened or something that happened years ago, I want to have it to keep.

    I love it that you are writing down the memories you are making by writing them down. All of us need to grow up and become Superman or Superwoman. I think the kiddo is on to something.
