When I grow up, I want to be a ...

Dear Mom,

Ever since I was small, I already am a witness of your life as a teacher. Whenever I spent some time in your classroom, I am amazed at how fun it was to be spending your days with kids. I am a living witness too of how you feel frustrated with the kids sometimes. Being a teacher is not a piece of cake. It is sometimes a hard pill to swallow. I got aware of that fact early on. Yet, when my preschool teacher asked me what I want to be when I grow up, I said I want to be a teacher, just like you.

But then, mom, you told me that its also nice to be a doctor. Hmm...I wondered what you meant. When I had my check-up, I was like, ahhh. So this is how I would look like if I become a doctor. I liked her white overcoat. That thingie around her neck that felt cold when she pressed it down my chest? I think that's cool. And the stuff she had in her clinic were great! The toys, the colorful walls and that chocolate she gave me afterwards.Yum! I think I want to be a doctor,too.

One summer, I joined the Jollibee Kids Club! You know how I love Jollibee! I dont wanna eat anywhere else. I dont care if I eat fried chicken,fries and spaghetti every time. I just love it there. So, when I joined the club, it was happiness overload! We danced and sing. I did some drawings and finger-painting, too. I also made a yum burger, all by myself. Isn't it amazing? That's why I told you and dad, I want to work at Jollibee when I grow up!

But....Since dad is a chef, he cooks some mean Chinese cuisine. Whenever he is home, he would rule the kitchen and you and I would be waiting at the table for the feast he has cooked for us. Whenever there is an occasion at home like my birthday or something, we don't resort to catered food because my daddy can cook for an army. I am so proud of my dad. Hmmmm.... I would look great as a chef too, right? Right?



But then, I realized I would love to be a model,too. Like the girls in the show that you watch. I'm glued to the TV whenever you are watching America's Next Top Model.With a  few makeovers and some training, I know I would look like Tyra Banks. Im sure you would agree, mom. :)

Honestly, the person I want to be changes in a snap. I'm a little confused,mom. I hope you understand. The world seem to have a lot to offer.  I got a lot of dreams. But I'm sure I could do it all. And I am not afraid because you and dad have always been and will always be here for me, whoever it is I decided to be.

Like I told you, I'm convinced I could do it all. I could be a teacher and a doctor by day, a chef by night, and a fashion model on weekends. And oh,just like Sofia the First, I am a princess too, every step of the way.  :)

Love,


Zay

  5. Awww that is sooo cute! It's amazing all the things they want to be when they grow up. I remember wanting to be a doctor as well when I was younger, then it changed to a lawyer and I'm sure it has changed quite a few times since then. She can be whoever she wants to be and I'm sure she can be the next top model as well. Hope you had a great Monday.
