When I Grow Up

The conversation this morning went as follows:

(I was getting ready for church. The boys were being occupied by a video.)

Brendan (yelling from the other room): Hey Mom!

Me: What's up?

Brendan: When I grow up, I want to be a paleontologist.

Me: Oh yeah? You want to hunt for dinosaur bones?

Brendan: Yeah, and put them together like a puzzle!

Me: Cool. Sounds fun.

Wyatt: Hey Mom!

Me: Yes??

Wyatt: When I grow up, I want to be a monkey.

Me (speechless, but absolutely cracking up in my head): Awesome!

That is the most hilarious thing ever. And Wyatt probably doesn't want to be any monkey, probably a kung-foo monkey.

When I grow up, I'd like to be an electric blanket, then I'd never have cold hands again (like I do now).

I am little disappointed that neither of them said they wanted to be professional fishermen, though monkey sounds like it could be fun.

Why a monkey? Funny.

(In response to Krisy)

Me: Wyatt, why do you want to be a monkey?

Wyatt: Because I want to climb trees.
