It’s never too early to start planning for your future or to start thinking about your career choices.
Madeline, 3 1/2: Mommy, I want to be a doctor when I’m older and bigger.
Me: That’s a good idea. You’ll have to be in school a long time.
Madeline: Or maybe a zookeeper. Or like that lady at the grocery store…
Me: A store clerk?
Madeline: Yes, and like at Wal-Mart, too. And maybe a hairdresser. And I want to be on the stage. And a writer and artist like the ones in the books from the “libary.”
Me: That sounds great.
Madeline: Can I do them all?
Madeline: I want to be a mommy, too. Like you.
Looks like I’ve got the best job in the world…
