A few days back, when I was helping my five year old daughter fill answers in her activity book, we came across a question in that book
“What will you do if you rule the world?”
I was not sure if my daughter understood the question. So, I waited curiously for her to respond.
She thought for a moment and said
“I want the kids to do what grown ups do and the grownups to do what the kids do”!
I was surprised. I wanted to understand clearly what she meant. So I asked
“What will you do as a grownup? What should I do as a kid?”
Her reply amused me.
“As a kid, you will go to my school. You will do my homework. You will attend my dance, music and swimming classes.
As a grownup, I will stay at home. I will watch TV all day. I will bake cupcakes.”
From the past one and half year, I have been a stay at home Mom and my daughter envies my situation. She thinks that all I do throughout the day is to stay at home, watch TV and cook 🙂 Meanwhile, I always see my daughter and I wish I could get my childhood days back !
Surely, we grownups are going to be in trouble if kids ruled the world!
