This week i was asked to sub at the old daycare i used to work at.... i ended up working with the little 5 and 6 year olds. [and just for the record it really is true that kids days the darndest things... ] i had the pleasure of meeting a little boy named Linden who was blonde, blue eyed and smartly dressed. one might call him "special" but he was the sweetest thing with his glasses and wide eyes! he took to me immediately and began to ask me millions of questions... ex. where i worked... to which i replied starbucks... he then when on to talk all about himself and his family, proudly promoting his mom and dad and their occupations in great detail. then i asked him the age old question "what do you want to be when you grow up?" - - - as he walked backwards, with a stern, twisted look on his face, as though he was thinking really hard, he replied after a long pause "i think i'll work at starbucks" and scampered off. oh my word! it was the most adorable thing. i was smitten with this tiny little 5 year old who wants to be just like me someday... although i hope his lifelong dream isn't to work at starbucks :)
