Big Dreams For A Little Girl

Posted by MANDI at 5:51 PM
Offspring #2 has decided that she will be a doctor when she grows up. She's also decided that she will have a pink 'Herbie car' ie a VW Beetle, and a pink purse. These aren't new plans, she's been talking about them for at least the last four months.

Today she added to them. Her latest plan is that she'll live next door to me so we can have "lots of cups of teas together" and "we can talk to each other over the fence". Sometimes I'll even be allowed to go to her house for dinner, though I might have to cook it because she'll be very busy working, "being a doctor and fixing all the people who are hurt".

Those are big dreams for a tiny little four year old and of course she's going to change her mind a million time between now and actually being a 'grown up' but I'm loving these conversations.

My friend was having a blood test recently and her 4 year old daughter was watching with fascination. The nurse asked little miss if she wanted to be a nurse when she grew up, and little miss said, apparently with a look of "how silly do you think I am" on her face, "no, a doctor".

My goodness, she's organised. My 4 yo wants to be an 'artist' and live 'on top of a hill' in a 'cubby house but bigger'.

Wow! No idea if I had plans as structured as that at age 4! Amazing, especially also the foresight considering the cooking :-)
