A real job

The Hippie has told us a whole variety of jobs she wants to do. Everything from a person who rides cheetahs to someone who saves animals who are almost extinct. Lately if you ask her she says she only wants to be a Mommy when she grows up. The Genius wants to be an x-ray tech and she has not varied from that in almost 4 years!!! She had pneumonia and even though she could not sit up without help she was very impressed with the x-ray tech and the machines and then they brought her back and let her look at the pictures. Then when she was attacked by the dog she got more x-rays and she said she still wants to do that and "be able to see into so many different bodies and see all the different bones." The other day they started a job discussion with me and the Hippie asked, "Mommy they really isn't a job where you ride cheetahs all day is there?" I told her no. The Genius asked, "Well what about a cheetah tamer?" I told her that I had never heard of a cheetah tamer but had heard of people who tamed lions and tigers. The Genius looked right at me and said, "Well I'd never want to tame a lion or tiger. They are mean and scary and eat meat!" That's the logic of 5 and 6 year olds. Gotta love it!
