I asked Lizzie over dinner last night what she might like to do when she's a grown-up. She immediately answered that she would like to have babies (preferably adopted) and be a stay-at-home mom with them. I was a little surprised, but the thought of her wanting to do something like her mama had me glowing just a little on the inside.
The glow wore off quickly, though, when I asked her what made her want to be a SAHM.
She crossed her arms across her chest and leaned back in her chair with a deep and longing sigh:
"Because then I can just relax and do nothing...and I can sit around watching tv with my kids...or I could get my kids to clean everything up."
Sigh. Clearly I have some more educating to do!
