Mister Ambitious

My eight-year-old son had a project in school.  It was to list his plans for the future.  Here's what the boy had to say:

1.  When I'm in the sixth grade, I hope to be tall.  (Good luck with that, because I was really small until I was sixteen.  Hopefully you won't take quite so long to grow!)

2.  When I'm in high school, I would like to be a millionaire.  (Then you'd better start working, kid!)

3.  When I'm 25, I hope I will be a master skydiver.  (What?  Where did that come from?)

4.  When I grow up, I would really like to sleep all day. 

I had to have a little talk with Bubba about that last one.  "Dude," I said.  "You can't just sleep all day when you're a grown up.  You have to work!"

"No, Mama," he said.  "I'm going to be a millionaire in high school.  Then I won't have to work when I'm an adult, and I can sleep all day!"

Wow. I wish I had thought of that when I was eight years old!


  1. He's got it all planned out. lol.

  2. Wow, that would be nice. He'd have the life of a cat, a rich cat haha

  3. That's hilarious. I have to say, I often wish I could sleep all day too! LOL.

    1. I don't know if I could sleep all day. There's too much I want to do!

  4. When my son was in fifth grade, he told his First Communion class that he wanted to be a race car driver. He became an auto mechanic and several years ago, he refurbished a race car. He drove it once and never again because it was so loud, but I think it's fair to say he reached his goal.


  5. Let's see if my son reaches his goal of being a millionaire in high school!

  6. It's always good to have goals to work towards. : )
