Today, my two-year-old told me, “Mommy, I’m going to be a scientist!”
I encouraged her, “Oh, that would be fantastic. To be a good scientist, you need to go to school and learn lots of things. It will be so much fun to learn about science.”
My little one responded, “When I go to school, I’m going to learn how to jump rope.”
In the mean time, her five-year-old sister had gotten out paper and crayons and was diligently working on an art project.
When I asked her what she was making, she replied, “It’s a game. You have to follow these lines I drew to get to the end, but if you don’t do it right, you end up in the dungeon, where you get all cut up.”
