What do you want to be when you grow up?


For as long as Sebastian could talk when questioned what he wants to do when he grows up he has answered that he wants to be a garbage man. We have no way discouraged this, as we have not questioned his decision nor have we attempted to offer him other alternatives as to what he can be when he grows up. Lately he's making garbage a whole family affair. His daddy is going to help and so is Uncle Danny. He's sitting beside me right now looking at his library books so I'm going to ask him a question or two about this and just type what he says:

Me: So, Seb, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Seb: Garbage man
Me: Why?
Seb: Cause I want to be a garbageman with Dan.
Me: What are you going to do?
Seb: Dan the garbage man will take out the garbage and and I will stay in the truck. And Dan will stand on the pole and I can stand on the pole And when I grow up Dan can be a garbage man, I can be a garbage man and Alice can be one too. We can all be garbage men. Dad can be one and you too.
Me: What's the best thing about being a garbage man?
Seb: It's because I want to take out the garbage with Dan.
Me: Why Dan?
Seb: It's cause I haven't seen Danny what he does when someone wants to pretend they're a garbage man with Dan.
Me: Why not a doctor?
Seb: It's because Dan's so cool. I haven't seen Dan before and Dan hasn't seen me in awhile.
Me: Do you love Dan?
Seb: I do. That's why I want to be a garbage man with Dan. Because I love Dan.

Dan - I really hope you are reading this!!!
