When I Grow Up

This past weekend, we went to see Brett play basketball and his Grandparents came to watch. Basketball probably isn't his Favorite sport, but since his friends are doing it, he isn't going to miss an opportunity to be there! After the game, we decided to hit the Whataburger near by. (I think the last time I have been to one was the last time I visited MetroCenter in the early 1990's!) Anyway since we were all sitting in the same booth..Brett has a captive audience which means he is in control of the conversation the whole time.

This time he was talking about what he wants to be when he grows up. This is the Conversation.

"Grandma, guess what I want to be when I grow up?"
"What?"
"A Lawyer!"
Me interjecting--"Brett, do you know what a lawyer does?"
"Yep, they go to court and make sure people obey the law. I think I want to be a Lawyer of Houses like Aunt Seeshe (Cynthia)."

Well probably in 15 years when he is ready to be a Lawyer of Houses the real estate market will be up again. Then the conversation keeps going.

"Mom, I want to have 4 kids when I grow up. And when I die, I am going to leave 25% of my money to the first one, 25% to the second one, 25% to the third one and my last kid will get my LAST QUARTER!" Hopefully he wont have 5 kids then his ratio's will be off.

Later in the car ride home, he looks at Mike and says. "Dad, maybe I can be a lawyer for UPS when I grow up, then I will be in charge of YOU!" Mike told him FAT CHANCE..He will retire before Brett can be the boss of him.

He also asked if he could take Law Classes in College, cause he wants to be a lawyer as soon as possible.

I am pretty sure whatever he ends up doing, he will have a plan for it!!

"Are You Kidding Me?"!

That is so funny!

Brett-
I'm so happy you know what you are going to do with your life already. Some guys don't figure it out until they are in their
30's!

That is so cute. He sounds like a pretty smart boy.

I'm glad Brett has some good ambitions. Dallin wants to be a candy maker when he grows up. I really hope he changes his mind, but the upside is that he informed me that he would bring me candy every day. He knows the way straight to my heart.
