Driving to dance class, Sophia, out of the blue, says, “I want to be you.”
I start to wonder why she would want to be me…because I’m so cool?…because I am a teacher?…because I am an amazing mom? So I ask her, “Why?” And the following conversation occurs.
Sophia: Being a grown up would be fun.
Me: What would you do?
Sophia: Take naps.
Me: You know you could do that now. What else would you do?
Sophia: Take a shower everyday.
Me: What else?
Sophia: Be bored because I’m a mom.
And there you have it! Apparently being a mom means you are bored all of the time but at least you are clean because you take a shower everyday! Oh, and you get to take naps!
