Career Path for a Four Year Old
Micah has decided he wants to be a train engineer and drive a train.
So there was this morning he said, "Mom. I don't want to go to Aunty Mable's school anymore. I want to go to the Train School. now."
Hence Mommy had to explain all the different levels of schooling he has to go through until he is ready for train school, because he still can't read instruction (so cannot operate a train), still can't count (need to know how fast to go or to slow down) and needs to know more about how things work so that he can help fix a train when it breaks down.
He agreed to start with Aunty Mable's school.
But he will sometimes come tell me,
"When I am 5 years old, I will go to a different school, one for bigger children.
Then when I am 10 years old, I must go to another school, for even bigger children.
Then when I am.... Then I can go to the school to be a Train engineer."
Happy dreams, Micah.
Let's see how far you'll take this...
Mommy and Daddy are always supportive of what you want to do for a living. :)
