Aidan frequently tells me how things are going to be when he grows up. They mostly make me smile, but sometimes they give me a good laugh. In addition to being a big time Hockey player, here are a few of my favorites that he has told me:
When I grow up, this closet (pointing to his Dad's closet) will be mine and yours will be my wifes!
Aidan: When I grow up, Mama, where will you live? Me: Well, right here, I guess. Aidan: No you won't. You'll have to live somewhere else because my wife and I are going to live in this house! (I guess I should be happy that he loves his home so much that he never wants to leave it!! )
When I grow up, Mama, I'm going to have six. Six what? Six kids. I'm going to bring them all home from Russia! (so sayeth my only child. . .)
And finally, I have won a major award! (Doesn't that make you think of the movie A Christmas Story??) It is scheduled to be delivered around 10:00 tomorrow morning. Stay tuned for pictures. . .and yes, it is tall and nicely shaped, but it isn't a leg lamp! Although I will have to keep Aidan's hands off of it!!!
Happy Veteren's Day!
