This happened last year when M was barely 4 years old :
“M last evening, out of now where threw the question at us – I’m assuming they had a discussion about the topic at his child care.
So, What would you want to be when you grow up – Mummy ?
I was lost for a moment : I believed I was a grown up already – I’m 31 and I’m an Engineer (atleast by what my degree says ;-))
I presumed – ” My growing up ” to be about 50+ years and I decided to play along….
I said ” I want to be a lecturer M – I want to teach because I’d love to teach or train and that is my passion !
Then – he looked at his dad and asked his very first question – It still began with a “So”
So, What do you want to be when you grow up Daddy ?
J being the most logical guy he is , said ” I’m already grown up, M !!!”
M not accepting J’s words asked the question again –
So J said ” I want to be a ‘Good Father’ when I grow up”
I decided to ask M his own question :
So, What do you want to be when you grow up – M ?
M said ” I WANT TO BE AN AMBULANCE DRIVER WHEN I GROW UP !”
Curiously I asked – But Why ?
So he said – I want to drive fast and save the people who are really sick and dying !!!
My Heart skipped a beat !
May GOD Bless you for your noble intentions – My Darling !
