Career planning

I often read the classics to my daughter. You know, by authors such as Dr. Seuss, P.D. Eastman, Theo. LeSieg. It's a blast to see her love the same books I did as a child: Put Me in the Zoo, Are You My Mother?, The Cat in the Hat, Yertle the Turtle.

The other day we were reading Maybe you should fly a jet! Maybe you should be a vet! It's basically an early career planner, giving you options for determining the perfect job for your future.

We were reading the page where it lists the writer. My daughter pointed to the page and said, "She doesn't look like a writer."

I said, "Well, people used to write at typewriters. Now we have computers. This is kind of an old book."

She agreed. "Yeah, but I meant that if she were a writer like you, she'd be wearing her pajamas."

Everyone's a comedienne....

Observant child! My laundry has a high percentage of pajamas, too.

I'm all for the PJs and sweats. Who's going to see me while I'm at my desk?
