You can be anything you want to be!

As I was helping my 2 1/2 year old little girl, Baluga get dressed this morning she was talking this very topic, that you can be anything you want to be. She started talking about a doctor and I asked her if that is what she wanted to be, and she said that is what I wanted to be. I said you can be anything you want to be, and she you can (meaning me). So I informed her that she too can be anything she wanted to be. So I asked her what she wanted to be and she told me a penguin! Good for her, and then she told me she wanted to be a penguin doctor. Now she didn't mean a doctor that worked on penguins, like a vet, but a penguin that is a doctor! I was telling me husband about this, so we decided to ask her again what she wanted to be. This time a Rice Krispy! I later asked her again and this time she said she wanted to be Traci, from Hairspray. At least this time she picked the right species, and something that is living. I hope she never forgets that she can be ANYTHING she wants to be.
