Son number three: Hey mom, you know what I’m going to be when I grow up?
Me: no, what?
S#3: I’m going to be a scientist
Me: (Nodding) yep, sounds good to me –
S#3: and a gym teacher.
Me: Uh, well that’s certainly going to be interesting… you like gym class huh?
S#3: yep. I’m going to have my own gym
Me: oh, that is a great idea! You can have your lab and a gym too.
S#3: yeah and when people come in I’ll tell them, “You can’t use that bathroom, it’s for the Scientists only!”
S#3: and they will have short fingernails because scientists have short fingernails ONLY.
Me: Glad you got it all figured out.
S#3: uh huh.
