I was fixing breakfast with Mikhail this morning.
Now, let me just say, that all my kids chatter CONSTANTLY. It’s non-stop. Truly, it’s enough to drive a person insane. Just when I think I’m getting a quiet moment from one, another one will come onto the scene.
With that said, I guess I would have to say each of them have their own quiet moments. . . However, I don’t get them. Because, as soon as one is away being “quiet”; another comes and takes their place.
I guess they don’t want me to be lonely. 😉
Anyway, this morning we were making muffins. And Mikhail was just going on and on.
I’ve learned, sadly, to tune a lot out. But, there are instances when you catch something and it holds your attention.
So, in the midst of the jabber, Mikhail pops out with, “I’ve decided,” (this is a key word cue for mom to start paying attention) “that I’m not going to decide what to be when I grow up.”
“Yep, because there are so many things to do out there. And there are other things that people haven’t even thought of yet. So, I am not going to decide what to be till I grow up.”
Isn’t that just brilliant? From a 4 year old!
Then he pops out with this,
“But, I know I’m not going to be a cop.”
