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?
