image A Day at the Police StationAnna loves Richard Scarry books and A Day at the Police Station was one of her favorites last week. Then on the way to the airport we had the following conversation while waiting in traffic:

  • Anna: Maybe I will become a policeman when I grow up. I will take care of traffic jams and cars.
  • Me: It’s an important job. But it can also be dangerous. Policemen deal with people who don’t follow rules.
  • Anna: Oh, don’t worry, mama, I will stand on the sidewalk, of course. And I will build myself a motorcycle.
  • Husband: Out of what?
  • Anna: Out of sticks and straw and leaves and mud. Sticks for the handles, and straw for the saddle….. Oh, and it won’t have an engine, so it will be rather a bike.
  • Husband: And the wheels?
  • Anna (after a pause): Hmm… Wheels are tricky… Maybe I will just buy wheels.

Come and share your kids’ pearls of wisdom at Tiny Talk Tuesday hosted by Not Before 7.

Oh she has such a vivid imagination, but also is clever enough to know when to outsource :-)

So funny! B has played police officer before, but he's pretty naive about crime so far, which is ok with me, so pretty much his police play involves traffic and parking tickets!

You two have some interesting conversations. Her motorcycle would definitely be a sight worth beholding:-).
