Nik: “Mom, I want to write an article about how to give your mom a massage by walking on her back.”
Nik: “And I want to send it to a magazine so that they can put it in there so people can read it.”
Nik: “Do you think I could write articles like that when I grow up? Because I think I could do that, and it would be a way I could make money? I think I could do that?”
Me: “That’s a great idea, Nik. Why don’t you write that article when we get back home from school tonight? I think you write very well now, and will get even better the more you write.”
Nik: “Yeah, I think I want to write articles for magazines. Because I don’t think it will be that hard to do. And I think I could do it.”
I love the fact that he is thinking so hard about what he wants to do when he grows up.
But starting now.
