When I Grow Up

21 Feb

One used a #2 pencil. The other used markers. Such innocent and casual ways to document such ginormous life decisions.

At the ages of 7 and 5, the kids have named what they want to do with the rest of their lives. They were both recently asked at school what they wanted to be when they grow up. Nia answered with “teach, movie star, sing, dance, draw and be sassy.” Sounds amazing and exhausting. I guess not as exhausting as Nate’s aspirations though. His drawing depicts them perfectly.


Who knows? It may all happen. Andrew was about Nia’s age when he drew the picture below and he grew up to go to West Point, ride in tanks and look way hot in an Army Captain’s uniform.


On the other hand, I used to draw pictures of a big haired, huge lipped, strapless dress, high-heel wearing lady who may or may not have represented a prostitute.

I was never good at art though.
