Love the Boy...His Thoughts on Future Employment

About a month ago, I was in the car doing the unthinkable, talking on my phone.  I was returning a phone call from one of the workers with Lutheran Family Services regarding questions I had about getting our homestudy completed.  Kenson happened to be in the back and wanted to know who I was talking to.  Since he didn't know the woman, I simply said it was someone who helps kids who don't have families find families.  I added that that must be a pretty cool job and Kenson agreed, saying with a very serious voice, "I want to do that job when I get big."

Fast forward to this week.  Again, we were in the van.  Kenson and Conleigh were having some conversation about jobs.  I don't remember the exact words but somehow Conleigh offered up a suggestion to Kenson for things to do when he got bigger.  Offended, he huffed back "I'm not doing that!  I'm helping families and kids.  What job do I want to do again, Mama?"

Oh my deep thinking little boy.  What other 5 year old do you know who would like to be a social worker when he gets big?
