When I grow up.....

I had a funny little conversation with Little 1 the other day. On the way to the supermarket she was merrily skipping and prancing along beside me, as I was pushing Little 2 in the pushchair, when she sudenly stopped and said...

'When I grow up I want to be a Tooth Fairy'

As I smiled to myself and we continued walking, my first thoughts were to the financial implications of her decision and I said ' That is a lovely thought, you would make a great fairy, but you won't have much money as Tooth Fairies give it all away to the children'. I probably shouldn't have been so negative after all it is not a likely profession she will take up!

But then she replied with, 'I think they have lots of money, that's why they give it all away'.

So there you go, that is a classic example of my positive thinking, generous, fairy loving 4 year old and I love her so...

My Gorgeous Little Fairies
I asked Little 2 later on what she wanted to be when she grew up, not really expecting her to understand the question or grasp the concept at 25months old and she said...

'I not grow up, I stay little.'

That suits me just fine if she stays my baby for a little while longer, they are growing up far to fast for my liking anyway. I do wonder what they will do when they are all grown up. Little 1 would make a great teacher. Little 2 really loves planes at the moment, I really have no idea about her!
