This week I decided to start jotting down some of the things he's said. Here's a few of them:
...I want to be a mechanical engineer and a scientist. And work at a restaurant, and a gas station."
...I want to travel to all 50 states to taste pizza and then see which one is best. (I’ll take my kids with me.)"
...I'm going to earn $35 and then take it all to a store to buy gum – all different kinds."
.... I'm going to start a car company.
.... I want to be an archaeologist.
... I'm going to take my kids to a different country every year.
...I'm going to start a gum factory and make all kinds, like pumpkin-pie gum and cinnamon-toast gum, but especially healthy ones like Mint-Alfalfa."
...I'm going to -- this will just be a hobby because I probably won't make a penny at it -- but I want to have a half-priced bakery for all the poor people. They should still get to have good food even if they're poor!"
...I'm going to study zoology. There are a lot of jobs for that, right?"
And my favorite one of the week:
"When I grow up, I want to love God like I mean it."
Meanwhile, Miles is starting to pick up on this theme. This morning he told me, "I used to want to be a police when I grow up, but now I want to be a radio man (DJ)."
Can't wait to see which things come true!
