To Grow Up or Not...

Lexi has always been very interested in the concept of what she wants to be when she grows up. Her current list of undertakings is pretty ambitious:
  • A vegetarian veterinarian
  • A basketball player
  • An art teacher
and as of this morning
  • An opera singer
She was giving us a sample of her vocal abilities yesterday at the breakfast table. It's funny to hear what a 7 year-old perceives as opera.

There are a few other options that float in and out of the list. Like ballerina, princess, and dentist. I love how her list is so varied and how at her age there is no consideration to the "practicality" of her choices. Besides, sometimes "practical" is over rated (says her very happy yoga teacher of a mom).

Scott decided to check in with Brea on her thoughts on the topic:

Scott: "Brea, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
Brea: (With the most serious face I think I've ever seen her posses, admittedly shaking her head with her hands held up in front of her as if to signal STOP!) "OH, I'm not going to grow up!"

Oh monkey, if only that were true...
