I love listening to my son declare what he wants to be when he grows up. While he has three professions he’s choosing from right now, each one has a special place in his heart so it will be fun to see what he ultimately goes with several years from now. Till that day though, I’ll just encourage him to chase those dreams with all his heart.
Encouraging my child to dream
Thanks to Fireman Sam and the visiting local fire fighters who visited his school, Little Man is in love with firefighters and yes, really hopes to be one when he grows up.
I love those moments when something gets cooked a little extra on the stove, a little smoke fills the kitchen and when I turn around I see him standing there, fully equipped to put out the ‘fire’ I started!
So it was no brainer when I saw the fire rescue tee and matching shorts at Kohls while shopping for clothes for him.
And right below the fire rescue tee was a jet tee. It’s as if Jumping Beans designed these t-shirts thinking of my 4 year old!
Along with being a firefighter, Little Man also wants to be a fighter jet pilot. Fighter jets have his heart and it’s a mutual love he shares with Hubs.
The two can watch dog fights for hours on end and look at books detailing flight stunts to the most intricate detail.
He has already decided that he will be wearing this comfortable set to the upcoming Wings Over Texas show coming up in a few weeks.
With all 4 pieces matching other coordinates in his wardrobe, I would say these were great picks considering we can work in several looks when the weather is warmer.
Little Man also insists on being an engineer. Yes, a fire-fighting, fighter jet flying, engineer. And his love for all things LEGO influenced my decision to get him a “Master Builder” tee as well.
He naturally announced all three picks to be “AWESOME!”
And considering I paired the purchase with a 15% off coupon, I think I got a sweet bargain. But nothing beats the Van Heusen set I found on the clearance racks that’s perfect for an upcoming wedding. ($13.50 for a $70 set. Woohoo!)
Yes, Little Man does look older than his age in the classy set and I suppose it’s a glimpse into the future for me.
Irrespective of what he ultimately decides to choose as a profession, I will be supportive of his choice.
He’ll be all grown up and ready to take on the world but for this Mama, he will always be her little one.
