So, I had to go up to work on Thursday to give a test to my on-line class. I promised Alex that I would pick him up from school and that we would run a few errands and then go to McDonald's. For those of you who know Alex, he LOVES McDonald's. And we are not just talking the food. It is the excitement of seeing what wonderful plastic toy is coming up next so that he can start his plan, along with his co conspirator, Grandad, on how to collect them all! Alex is definitely a collector :)
Well, we order his Happy Meal, and he pays with his Arch Card that he got from my grandparents for his birthday. Then, he picks out the perfect table for us. As we are sitting at our table, he starts to eat his dinner and gets a very excited look on his face. He says, "Mom, you know what would be really awesome?" Of course I ask him what would be so awesome. Then he replies, "When you and I both grow bigger, we can work at McDonald's and make the food for the Happy Meals!" I was cracking up inside, but I assured him that would be really awesome.
I will have to remind him at sixteen that once his ambition in life was to be a short-order fry cook! Although, he has said from the age of two he wants to be a doctor. Guess we will see!
a New idea!
