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.
LATER IN THE DAY:
Adam arrives home and I ask Abby again.
Abby: I want to be Superman.
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?
