My boys built an indoor clubhouse today, staying occupied for hours.  At one point they emerged from their play room with a status report.

"Mom," asked Adam, "want to know the name of our club?"

"Of course," I said.

"It’s the Mythical World of Frankenstein and Randy Johnson," he said proudly.  "And we all work at Kinko’s."

I chuckled to myself as I was reminded, once again, that mothering these little characters is the best job in the world.

    Too funny! I’ll never forget the time the little neighbor kid told us what he wanted to be when he grew up. (CILCO is the name of our electric/gas company.) He said that he wanted to be the CILCO bill! LMAO!

    I love the creative genius that all kids are! I’m glad that you were privy to the the club… Did they make you an honorary member?

    When my nephew was 3, he always talked about how he wished he worked at Costco. I love what they think are the coolest professions in the world…

    I loved the little camps my kids made when they were little. Mine were a little less industrious, choosing jobs like Spiderman, Princess and Cook.

    I LOVE This. It begs so many questions, not the least of which is WHO is Randy Johnson? I remember forts in the living room. Such fun. My oldest just said to her brother – “Move! The remote control can’t see the t.v.!” They still make me smile. Stay warm!
