Since it seems to be human nature to jump to conclusions about the intelligence of our children, I thought I would compile a list of sure-fire ways to determine your child’s future career. Many of these are viable choices for my kids, but I have my fingers crossed for doctor.
Dentist- Mr. Man was for a time, completely obsessed with putting his fingers in my mouth. He thought it was hilarious when I “bit” him. It was all about the teeth. Clearly, I should sign him up for dental school.
Plumber- Another fascination that Mr. Man has is the toilet. He loves to look at the water, remove his big sister’s potty seat and unroll the toilet paper.
Olympic runner- When Little Miss was a few months past her first birthday, she discovered running. She decided that it was preferable to walking and ran at all times. I saw a gold metal in her future.
Fashion designer- Does your child pair the sparkly purple shirt with jeans, a yellow tutu, a floppy sun hat and Mommy’s sunglasses? Get ready for the runway!
Chef- Kids who take apart their meals and reconstruct them into something new or those who insist on dipping their strawberries into ketchup have an eye for new interesting food combinations. Imagine their future as a celebrity chef.
Drummer- Be it toy drum, highchair, garbage can or plastic bin, this kid can keep a beat. Let’s clear out the garage now.
Architect- Little Miss is obviously going to be a house builder when she grows up since she talks about Lego houses all day long. Granted I am the one who does 90% of the building, but maybe she can be the project manager or something.
Doctor- Mr. Man is obsessed with Doc McStuffins. I doubt it is because of the cute characters and catchy songs. Must be because he enjoys learning medical terminology.
Proctologist… or Vet- Never does Mr. Man pet the cat in any other area than behind her tail. He tried to poke her with a magic wand the other day. I am not a fan of these behaviors, though, do proctologists make good money?
What are some of your kids’ future jobs? I’d love to hear them!
