a cute little M story - because I'm not up for the theatre reviews I was planning...

First off you have to know that when M is asked what she wants to be when she grows up she tells you a doctor. Then she amends that to being an animal doctor. (we've taught her the word veterinarian, but she mangles it pretty badly so we just stick with animal doctor)

Of course, being an animal doctor is not good enough for her - her plan is to be THE animal doctor for Animal Planet. I don't know where she got this idea - but she DOES watch an awful lot of Animal Planet... it's her new favorite channel. (hey, we don't have much in the way of cable...)


So... the other day M was drawing a picture of Mrs' Claus. She had written "mommyadadddy" on it - so I asked if that was mommy or daddy... silly question I guess because then she pointed out all the curly blonde hair beyind the hat and her high heeled boots.

We had a good laugh that Mommy was going to be Mrs. Claus when I got older - but then things got serious. Somehow she pieced it together that if I was Mrs. Claus then ManOfTheHouse would have to be Santa - and that the current Santa would have to die... this concerned her quite a bit but not as much as the fact that if we lived at the North Pole that:

"I will never see you and then you and Daddy can only watch me on Animal Planet!"

I told her I didn't want to be Mrs. Claus after all - life is much better now :)

At least you would've been able to see her on Animal Planet---and she would've been warm:)

Ha! I love it. Hey, what do we know, maybe she WILL end up the animal doctor on animal planet :-)

I LOVE the "literal" stage in a child! Let's hope she "literally" becomes the doc on animal planet! You can have whatever YOU want for Christmas! LOL!

haha - my word verifier says "lowadoc" - Lo and behold, if this girl becomes a Doc I won't be surprised :)

and Barb points out an obvious flaw to my Mrs. Claus plan... I really hate being cold!!! good thing there's a new plan!

I suppose it is good that you watch animal planet. Think of other scary things she could pick up from TV watching.

I like how M thinks...
If the Animal Planet thing doesn't work out maybe she can just be an animal doc to the reindeer, then nobody has to miss anybody.

Wow. That's going to be a lot of school. But it will be worth it for the fame.
Missed you guys at the family party!

Saw you on New England Bloggers and that you're an ENFJ (like me!) I also have a little Miss M that I write about often. :-) Nice blog!
