Maybe I'll be....

(c) 2010 ComfyDenim
I don't often post pictures of the kids anymore. Not since a picture of Mini-Me was popping up on my sitecounter as one of the reasons people were visiting my blog. It was weird. So I don't post pictures of them any more.

In order to get the full impact of my story, you have to see this face. 
He's 6. 

He gets caught up in the conversations of his bigger sibs about what they want to be when they grow up.

Mini-Me wants to be a marine biologist and save the blue whales. She rather enjoys the thought that she might have to go to Hawai'i to go to school. If this is where God takes her - then I plan on visiting. 

Often.

G-man wants to be a guitar playing, spy who builds things. He has a list of buildings. He is going to build a house that The Professor will design. He wants to build a church - because no one will suspect he's in the church. Spying

So really, J-man gets caught up in it.


Once he wanted to be an animal rescuer. 
Then he wanted to be a spy with his brother.
Sometimes he wants to design video games.


Tonight I prayed over the boys that "my boys will be arrows in Your hands" and I explained what that meant. Because he's six and he thought the wording was weird. So I explained.


Then he told me that he wanted to be a spy.


"Cool." I said and went on to put Mini-E to bed.


He followed me later and said, "I've changed my mind. I think...um ... that I want to be a regular guy. You know. And ...um .... get married and stuff."


That's cool, too.

LOL! Love it! And now you know he really IS listening! That is an adorable face, by the way!

One year General Mayhem decided that he wanted to be a pilot, then an astronaut, and then Batman. At least he had them in their proper order!

Giggle.
Let me enlighten you about the picture thing. When I do Google searches for images, anything with that particular word will come up. This can lead to some embarrassing searches if you aren't careful in your wording. Sometimes clicking on the link takes you to the blog, but not directly to the picture, so you search for it.

More than likely, people are searching for images of Mini-Me from Austin Powers.

Usually, image searches to my blog have to do with my edible models.

Very cute picture. It's nice that he wants to get married "and stuff." :oD

Merry Christmas!
