We Make Millions!


According to my son, that is.

On one of his homework assignments at the end of this year, when he was asked to draw himself as someone he would like to be and write about it, this is what he wrote:

kids drawing
kids note about making a million dollars
Evidently we’re “Milyenaires”.Ha! Who knew?
(Gotta love the way kids think…)

    I don’t have children but I have a niece (oops, I have 2 now lol but the baby is only 8 weeks old) and that little 4 year old is sending me things she has written and colored. I am just waiting for the day to get a story like that. I love it! Have a great day!Kristin

    That is so cute! My kids have that perception of us too. They also think I’m like 98 years old b/c of the few wild gray hairs!

    Seriously – that’s the cutest thing ever. It’s nice to see he gave himself a long 2 days of vacation time. How old is this boy to be such a workaholic? :-) Ha Ha! It’s nice to know there are some millionaires out there with such a fun blog! :-)

    Genny-I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed your recent comments. Thanks!And your son’s paper is adorable! I remember when mispelled words was cute- now that I have two in high school, it’s not so cute anymore… (Although, fortunately, their spelling HAS improved) LOL!

    They sure do look up their parents, don’t they? When my daughter was little she didn’t think her dad had a job because he farms – she thought having a job meant leaving for work everyday…..or something!

    I wish I was what my kids saw through their eyes…they think I am the best mom ever, that I cook for them (because I microwave) and that I am sooo funny.It is hard to live up to that! :)Cute post…I have actually been told by my children after asserting that we can’t afford something that we should just “put it on the card.”Yep, apparently we make millions too!The maid

    This is classic! I can’t wait until my (4 yr old) son can write–I can only imagine the type of randomness that will spew from his warped little brain (hey, he lives with hubby and I, so he really never stood a chance at normality).
