Lofty Aspirations


An excerpt from a conversation on the way to school:

Claire: Mom, I don’t want to be a princess in a high tower anymore when I grow up. I think I’ll be a doctor or a singer.

Mom: Why’s that, honey?

Claire: Because of the dragons.

Mom: You mean like in Shrek?

Claire: And Sleeping Beauty. And that movie we just saw. (Enchantment–that WAS a scary scene, btw!)

Mom:  Well, babe, I’m happy to tell you that, actually, dragons are just pretend. They’re not real! Just in the movies.

Claire: Really?

Mom: Really!

Claire: Okay then. I’ll be a princess in a high tower then.

Adam: (previously sucking his thumb and clutching Munchy): I wanna be a dad goat.

I LOVE IT!!! You can’t make this stuff up, you know?

    Just a plain ol’ goat would have been hysterical. The addition of a “dad” goat is just awesome. I would love to get inside their little heads for a day to see what thoughts lead up to these declarations!
