What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up?

It's always fun to document what children say they want to be when they grow up. Little Miss has been saying she wants to be a construction worker for the better part of this year. Sometimes, she'll go so far and say she wants to work specifically with bricks. She was very obsessed with bricks. Later, when she got her doctor's kit, she's been wanting to be a doctor. As I posted on Tumblr, as of last month or so, she wants to be a construction worker, doctor, and a hockey player. I'm thinking of leaning her towards sports medicine and at least knock out two of those things.

Regardless, she's been taking her medicine all week and very proud of herself because she's mostly good at taking it despite hating it. So, this morning, she wanted to tell the doctor that she's been taking her medicine. I told her she could when we go to her physical next month. Then, she asked me if the doctor wants to be her.

After a few minutes, I figured it out. If Little Miss wants to be a doctor when she grows up, it's only natural that the doctor would want to be Little Miss.
