You Want To Be What When You Grow Up????


Yesterday was the first day of school for the kids. I had 3 kids in 3 different schools. Luckily...1 rides the bus....(to far to drive him too)...1 rides the bike and the other has me take him and then he rides bus home. So really it's just a matter of timing. What's worse is this year they changed the school times so I'm totally confused myself!

When kids came home it was chaos....back packs flying...papers shoved at my face to sign...loud fast talking (that would be mini me)

I tried to settle everyone down with a little monkey munch snack...it worked ...for a bit...then off they were again! My kitchen look like a bomb of notebook paper exploded! Next thing I knew it was time to start dinner and oldest child walked through the door...not 5 mins later hubs came home from work...that's how late the bus comes w/my child...whew!

Dinner was fun hearing about all their first days and who was in their class and how lunch was etc etc.

Later that evening I noticed some note cards 2nd child (the 11 yr old) had for me to sign. Basic info...student name...dob...favorite food...music...
You know the 'getting to know you cards'
It wasn't until I got to "what do you want to be when you grow up" that grabbed my attention. He wrote ..

MATTRESS SALESMAN.

Ok? ummmm How on earth did he come up with that...no one in our family sells furniture...and I don't think he's ever been shopping with us.

So I did what every good mother would do

Me: "Umm honey...you wrote Mattress Salesman...how did you come up with that?"

2nd child: "Well I like to sleep and thought that what better place to work than around beds and mattresses all day"

Me: (stares trying really hard not to bust out laughing)

That's my boy!!!
