Esmé (4yo) has been struggling with an age-old issue:
Esmé: I CAN’T figure out what I want to do with my life!
Mom: Oh? Well, what options have you been considering?
Esmé: I can’t decide if I want to roller skate, or be a ballerina, or play!
Mom: Oh! Tough choices, huh?
Esmé: I think I will roller skate one day, do ballet the next, and play the next. Then I will roller skate again. That way I can do everything.
Subsequently, she’s decided to go with a more spider
humanitarian occupation. That would be AFTER she accidently broke a leg off her *pet* Daddy Longlegs.
Esmé: When I grow up, I’m going to be a spider nurse!
I love her perspective on things. A store front window had been painted with balloons, and she noticed they were missing.
Esmé: Look! The balloons are gone!
Mom: Oh. They must have washed the paint off the windows.
Esmé: No, Mom! They sprayed the balloons with invisible spray. So now the balloons are invisible!
Ahhh. The invisible spray. I must get some for my housecleaning tasks…
