As we were cycling home there was an interesting conversation.
5 year old When I grow and be a farmer I am going to have a flock of 10 sheep and you can use the wool mummy to make all the jumpers and blankets the children will need.
I said I would love to use the wool form his sheep. (He decided very young to be a farmer.)
The 3 year old said when I grow up I want to be your sheep dog
5 year old.. you cant be a sheep dog, you are a girl
3 year old but I want to be a sheep dog
I said you can be my sheep dog
3 year old nooo I don't want to be your sheep dog.
I said maybe you can be the 10 year olds sheep dog.
3year old said hmmmm ok
5 year old changes his mind and says she can be his sheep dog
3 year old asks what will you do when you get bigger Mummy?
I reply that before I had children I was a teacher just like at school
5 year old replies ignoring my answer about being a teacher when Mummy grows up she want to be an artist
I reply it would be good
5 year old tells me you would have to go to art school if I wanted to be an artist. That's what Pedalo Picasso did and we've been learning all about him in school.
so at least that's all sorted out.
