Friday Fictioneers: The Logic of a 6 Year Old

For Susie’s 6th Christmas she only wanted toy household appliances. Her parents complied but her mother was distraught.

She sat Susie down Christmas night and told her she could be anything she desired when she was grown, “there are a lot of important jobs to do” her mother said.

Susie asked who would do the jobs at home and her mother told her she could hire someone just like they had.

Susie thought for a moment then she told her mother she would do the jobs at home and be there to take care of her family. “That’s an important job” Susie said.

  1. When we teach children that they can be anything they want to be, we must also be prepared to hear that their choices of what that is may be very different than what we’d imagine for them … 🙂 Nicely spun!


  2. Out of the mouths of babes. . . .all that aside, it really IS possible to “do it all” but I’ve always been glad I was able to stay home when my kids were little. And since I was a teacher, my summers were also free. Best of both worlds.
