Me and my eight year old son were having some one-on-one time the other day. We were chatting about various topics when he started talking about what he wanted to be when he grew up.
He wants to be a cop. I asked him why and he said because he could go on car chases. I told him that rarely happened except on cartoons and movies. He corrected me and said that I was wrong, he had seen real video of it on Cops. I told him, yes, that was real…but it still doesn’t happen very often. He replied, “That’s OK. I’m sure I will still be able to eat all the doughnuts I want.” As long as he has goals and dreams.
Speaking of goals and dreams….during this same conversation he asked me what I wanted to be when I was a kid. I told him that I had wanted to be an astronaut. He replied, “That didn’t work out so well for ya, huh?” Nope, I guess not.
