This is why I am a mom...

I just had the funniest conversation with McKay and I had to share. McKay ALWAYS has something to say as some of you may know. Tonight we talked about what he wants to be when he grows up. Here's how it went:

Me: You should be a doctor McKay because you are such a good memorizer.
McKay: No. I wanna be a dodgeball guy.
Me: Yeah? Do you play at school?
McKay: Nope, I saw them on tv. But maybe when I get fired from there, then I'll be a doctor. After that I want to be an astronaut. Then I want to be a firefighter. I know you have to be strong to be a firefighter because when you turn on that water, boy does that hose get heavy! After that I want to be a 7-11 guy. Then I want to be a missionary. How old are you when you are a missionary?
Me: (barely able to talk through my laughing) 19.
McKay: Hmmm..... 1, 2, 3, 4,....(counts to 19) Man, that's gonna take me a hundred years. That's okay. After that I want to be a car fixer. Can you give me some examples of car fixing?

I couldn't give him any examples because I was laughing so hard. I love my boys!


  1. Wow 7-11 huh? That's some pretty serious stuff. Stop spending all your time hanging out there and take him some place educational, that may help. Just kidding.
    What a cute kid. Glad you shared that.

  2. Dude, think of all that kid is going to accomplish in the hundred years before his mission!

    I love that he's going to wait to get fired from dodgeball before he takes up medicine.

  3. I love it so much! I love watchin the wheels turn in that kids head. He's such a gem
