What should I be??

Conversation I overheard while driving:

Josh: I think I am going to be...a doctor?  Caleb, what should I be when I grow up?
Caleb: a whale
Josh: Caleb, people can't change into animals!  We stay human.  *Sigh 
Caleb: Oh, then, a boat?
Josh: (shaking his head) Oh Caleb, no what should I be when I am a dad?
Caleb: Oh, when you is a dad, you should put your kids in the car and drive.  (I could tell by his tone of voice that he was very proud of his response)
Josh: Caleb!  I can't do that when I need to be at work.  What should I do like for a job?  What should I BE?
Caleb: Oh!  Um, an airplane....driver?
Josh: Yes!  That's it!  I love airplanes.  I will fly them in the sky.  Now I just need to find an airport where I can work.  Mom, is there an airport in Texas?
Me: Yeah, there are lots of airports in Texas.
Josh: Perfect. (pause)  Except, then I will be flying lots and be gone and won't be home for dinner.  Then my wife will be taking care of the kids by herself.  Hm, I can't do that...

And that is all I heard before I pulled up at the city building to pay the water bill.  Isn't that precious though?  What five year old thinks about coming home for dinner every day and helping his wife?  So cute.  I think I have my adorable husband to thank for that.  :)


  1. wow. you're kids are deep, i'm thoroughly impressed. Love Calebs answers.

  2. I love it! Especially the part about the wife being home by herself and needing to be home for dinner. :)

  3. LOVE it! Everything that you write about their conversations just crack me up. :)

  4. This is pretty much the cutest conversation ever!! Your kids are adorable. How sweet of Josh!

  5. Um, cutest thing ever? I think yes.
