Out of the mind of Bria

On the way home from violin lessons:

Bria: "Mommy? Can you be whatever you want to be when you grow up?"

Me: "Sure you can."

Bria: "But, does it have to be what your talent is?"

Me: "Not necessarily."

Bria: "Good."

Me: (A little scared that she doesn't want to be a musician....not that it should matter, but, you know...) "Why is that good?"

Bria: "Because I don't want to have to be a runner when I grow up. I'd get too tired."

(Phewsh. I guess she discovered today in P.E. that she is the fastest girl in her class...we're still good with the music stuff.)

************************************

While waiting to meet some friends who were running late:

"When are they coming? We've been waiting for a hundred years! I'm practically an old lady now!"

************************************

While watching me make dinner (gasp!) for the sister I visit teach:

Bria: Why are you making dinner for her?

Me: Because she had surgery today and she can't do it herself.

Bria: Well, why can't her husband just do it?

(I can see that living in a household where Daddy is the main cook has skewed her point of view quite horribly.)

  1. That last one is a skewed point of view more people should have. :)

  3. That is so cute. She won the race and then started worrying that she'd have to run for the rest of her life. I think I won the 50 yard dash in 4th grade or something. You can tell Bria that, and that I only every ran a little bit for fun since then. :0)

  4. I agree with Annette! I was kind of thinking the same thing your daughter was.

    I love the glimpses into a little girl's mind. She's a funny little thing!

  19. I feel like an old lady every time I have to wait for my kids to get dressed (or brush their teeth or eat breakfast or...).

    What a cutie.

  20. That sounds like something an ex RS Prez said once.

    (she didn't believe in bringing meals for new Moms. she said husbands are perfectly capable of calling in for pizza.)

  21. She's funny.

    Is she the tallest in her grade too? For some reason I'm remembering that she was tall, but she's also a grade ahead, so . . . maybe I'm just losing my mind.

  22. GO BRIA!!! Hehe!!! I definitely think she should keep that idea of men helping in the kitchen when she's married! ;-P Though it's good to help out a friend in need as well.
