Emma's future

We took Maddie to the doctor the other day to check for the infamous ear infection. While there Emma said something she' s never said before. She said "When I grow up I want to be a doctor"

wow what a proud moment. Not sure why it evoked pride, maybe because it is a huge goal that our culture esteems as being better than something else. Anyway, we came home and told daddy about her new interest. Then he asked her why she chose this. "Oh", she says, while holding onto her candy cane from the doctor "because when i'm a doctor i'll give ALL the kids candy too!!!"

Oh yes, so proud.

The next day we were filling up at the gas station. Emma says to Jon, "Daddy when I grow up I want to be a gasser" A gasser? he asks "yeah" she says as she motions to the gas jockey filling up our vehicle.

Oh, so proud.
