Part of a conversation with my 6 year old today:
Me: What job do you think you might like one day?
Him: I want to stay at home.
Me (Internally) – Oh what validation of what I do as a MOM. How great that my son has not bought into traditional gender roles. I must be doing something right!
Me (Out Loud): You want to stay home with your kids like mommy does?
Him: Yeah. [pause] I just want to do nothing.
Love you kiddo. I would not have traded my “nothing” time with you for anything!
