"just kidding... i just want to be a veterinarian."

Tonight over our (very fancy) dinner of TJ's Fish Nuggets and Bell Pepper slices, Brent asked the children (8, 4 and 2) what they wanted to accomplish this summer.

This led to a conversation about their future goals.

Mercedes wants to go to BYU (UT).  During her time in high school and college, she'll work as a cashier and earn money to buy a mini-cooper or a mercedes.  Then she'd like to be a veterinarian or do hair and be a mom.

Cooper wants to go to USC.  He'll drive a big blue truck.  First, he wanted to be a train engineer after college (because he'll be too young in high school).  Then, he decided that he wants to be a veterinarian and a dad.

Once Brent illustrated the joys of being a Father - namely cleaning up barf and poop - Cooper said:

"Just kidding.  I don't want to be a dad.  I just want to be a veterinarian.

Smart boy.

FUNNY! I don't want to be a dad either...

Also, I'm surprised that a Lincoln Towncar isn't in the running for Mercedes car choices :)
