Dreams for the future

As we were driving home tonight, Colby said to me, "Mom, when I grow up, will you come visit me every day?" I said, "Well, I may not see you everyday, but I will come and see you and your wife and kids as much as I possibly can." "MY kids???!!!!"Colby exclaimed. "Sure." I said, "Don't you think you will have kids one day?"

Colby stopped to think about this for a while, then he answered, "Yeah...but first I am going to search the WHOLE world for my wife and when I find her, I will love her and we will get married and THEN we will have kids." "That sounds like a great plan, son!"

This made me smile inside and out. I'm feeling like, "Wow! Even at five, my son gets it! He gets what it is all about!"

Then Colby says, "Yeah... and maybe I'll be a truck driver or a garbage man."

Okay, maybe, we can leave that part out of mom's fantasy future for her son.- LOL

  1. Hey, I wanted to push carts at Target when I was little. I think I turned out okay.

    I don't think you have to worry too much about Colby. He's a very caring individual. Jury's still out on Sam....JUST KIDDING
