My boy Jake is a thoughtful little fella, this much I have learned.
We were in the reception area of the children’s gym, where the 3 of us were resting between the running, climbing & jumping that we so enjoy there.
He was enjoying eating a ‘treat’: a little chocolate bar.
Thoughtfully, he said to me, between mouthfuls:
“Daddy, you know how I’ve said to you that I want to be a Scientist?”
(It’s true: he has, on many occasions.)
“Well, I think I know what sort of Scientist I want to be. Do you know what sort of Scientist I want to be?”
(An unusually talkative one, probably!)
“No, I don’t: what sort of Scientist do you want to be?”
“I want to be a Chocolate Scientist!”
He likes investigating things, & he likes eating chocolate: it’s just logical!
He was delighted to learn that it is actually a real job, that he can indeed be a Chocolate Scientist! Although I suspect the job spec may not involve as much chocolate eating as he probably expects…
Still, I wish him luck: watch this space!
