Sweet Innocent Childhood

My daughter at 2 : Loved sweeping, mopping, washing utensils
"I want to grow up and become a HOUSEMAID"

My daughter at 3 : Just when she started her school
"I want togrow up and become a TEACHER"

My daughter at 4: After a visit to the supermarket
"I want to grow up and become a SALESGIRL"

My daughter at 5: After a ride in the bus.
"I want to grow up and become a CONDUCTOR"

My daughter at 6: Just after getting off from the lift.
"I want to grow up and become a LIFTMAN"

My daughter at 7: After seeing a documentary on astronauts.
"I want to grow up and become a SPACE TRAVELLER"

My daughter at 8: Seeing the models walking the ramp.
"I want to grow up and become MISS INDIA"

My daughter at 9: After draping me with dupatta.
"I want to grow up and become a FASHION DESIGNER"

My daughter at 10 now: Sees Indian Idol.
"I want to grow up and become an INDIAN IDOL"

God, just let her be happy with whatever she chooses to be in life.

God, I wouldn't blame her. I am an addict myself!

aargee September 1, 2007 at 3:06 AM  

thats so sweet...housemaid to indian idol..and a conductor and liftman too in between..hahhaha...but thats really cute.

rads September 1, 2007 at 4:10 AM  

aw, isn't in nice to know that she's absorbing and adapting :)
I had a cousin who wanted to be a bus conductor for almost close to 5 years - apparently they are very rich! :)

Let her change her mind as often as she likes. It is a woman’s prerogative!!
You go girl :)

RBDans: Oh yes, it is fun. The way her interest keeps varying. One hyperactive girl she is!

Random: lol.. You too? Conductors and especially TC's in the train were role models during playtimes for me too!

Aargee: You bet. These days I am coaxing her to become a dentist, what with the easy money they make!

Rads: Yeah, especially if the conductor becomes a Rajnikant ;)

Dame: Hmm... She needs all your support and encouragement, mam :) Looks like she has taken on her mom and her wavering mindset!

Poppins September 3, 2007 at 11:59 AM  

LOL.. very nice! Esp at the bus conductor bit !

Something to Say September 3, 2007 at 12:54 PM  

thats sweet.... and these days, the Indian idol fever has taken over all kids :)

karmickids September 3, 2007 at 12:56 PM  

Gosh, the brat still wants to be a watchman.

Just Like That September 3, 2007 at 1:22 PM  

LOL at liftman. Sitting thru the ups and downs of life.. Girl, your gal is so philosophical!

Conductors are a cool starting point- look where Rajni reached!

Sonny boy hasn't started this yet. Tho' I'm sure he will want to be an engine driver-he's hooked onto trains.

Sigh, this so reminds me of my growing up days...

Poppins: :) Chinna Chinna Asai!

STS: Yeah, it has. But then I keep telling her to look at Sandeep Acharya..he is nowhere to be seen!

Kiran: lol. Oh yes, I forgot to mention that. My D wanted to become that too!

JLT: Engine Drivers are cool too, nah? :) Agree about conductors too... not trying to put down any profession. I was just musing on her capricious mind :)

Usha September 3, 2007 at 6:46 PM  

That shows that she is open to look at all possibilities - great way to go!
And your thoughts as a parent are the best way to let her be what she wants to be while ensuring that she is a good human being.
have you seen an ad with sachin where the kid says similar things?
he wants to be a pilot one day, an actor another day and a cricketer another - best is to let them explore the options!

Tharini September 3, 2007 at 8:38 PM  

Wow...did she really say all those things. Amazing.
