Future Stay-at-Home Dad, Future Accountant

Jude must be having a growth spurt because he's been waking in the middle of the night and carrying his "pilly" and stuffed animals over to our room.  After several days of disturbed sleep, he was getting pretty cranky.

On the way to daycare Monday morning, Jude was crying over every little thing: the seatbelt that wouldn't click, the shoes that were alternately too tight and too loose, the pants that no matter how many times we readjusted them still didn't fit since his pre-growth spurt tummy disappeared.

Finally after a long talk about growth spurts and missing sleep from growing pains, Jude got frustrated and burst out, "But I don't want to grow tall and I don't want to go to school.  I just want to stay home with my babies."

Did I miss something?

"What babies?" I asked Jude. "Do you mean your stuffed animals?"

"No," he said. "I mean my real babies when I am big and I am a daddy.  Those babies."

"But Jude," I reasoned, "you need to go to school so you can learn all the things that daddies and mommies know so you can take care of babies."

"Yeah," Karenna added, "How are you going to read to your babies if you don't go to school?"

"Mommy can read to them," he answered.

"Well," she thought, "you'll need to know math.  How are you going to pay for your house?  How are you going to pay your taxes?"
