I thought this was cute

The boys and I were sitting reading books this morning. We were reading O Say Can You Say, by Dr. Seuss. Near the end there is a little diddy that talks about what you want to be when you grow up. It goes something like this:
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A cop in a cop's cap?
A cupcake cook in a cupcakes cook's cap?
A fat flapjack flapper in a flat flapjack hat?
Or perhaps you are one of those choosy chaps who likes cooky captains caps?

Then we had a little conversation that went like this:
Ewan: I want to be a fireman when I grow up.
Mommy: That is great! Isaac, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Isaac: CAKE!
Ewan and Mommy look at each other and laugh.
Ewan: Isaac, you can't be cake when you grow up! Maybe you can be a fireman with me when you grow up.
Mommy: Isaac, what do you think? Do you want to be a fireman with your brother when you grow up?
Isaac: Yeah!

Ewan is so good at inviting others along to join in the fun he is having. It warms my heart that he thinks about his brother and wants to be side by side having adventures together. I think it is every little boys dream at some point to be a fireman. Can you blame them though?

Isaac IS pretty sweet, and cute enough to eat up! And it's true--you really do have sweet boys who love adventure. :-) -monica

haha! i love that - CAKE! That reminds me of his pic with cake all over his face =).

in an Asian family, the little boys will say, "I want to be a doctor!" or "I want to be a lawyer" and mommy and daddy will applaud with pride. haha.

BUT, we won't do that in the Lin household =P.
