I Want to be an Elf When I Grow Up


Today we were sitting at the kitchen table discussing school, the school bus bully, and the process for a heroism award that my middle son has been recommended for.

Out of the blue my youngest declares, “when I grow up I want to be: a hockey player, veterinarian, or an Elf!”

Hockey player was the obvious answer, veterinarian has developed out of his desire to be around an animal again (we miss having a dog), and an ELF totally caught me off guard.

He continues, “yes, I want to be an Elf. They are funny, make toys and I can make myself my own toys!”

I love that kid! He just may grow up to be a comedian or toy engineer but I like Elf!
