"When I'm older..."

Josiah has quite a list of “When I’m olders” going these days.

What’s a “When I’m older”? You know, those things that kids say they’re going to do when they get older. In Josiah’s case, this might sound like, “When I’m older, I will ride a bike.” He usually says it with a very serious look on his face and a dramatic nod of the head.

Anyway, we thought it would be fun to start documenting some of these things. These are all things that he’s actually said.

When I’m older…

  • ...I will ride a bike.
  • ...I will climb a ladder.
  • ...I will climb a tree.
  • ...I will stand on the roof.
  • ...I will stand in the street.
  • ...I will drink coffee.
  • ...I will drink tea.
  • ...I will drink Dr. Pepper.
  • ...I will drink Root Beer.
More to come…

I remember being too small to pour my own milk; Mom always bought the big gallon-size containers, and at some point I must have said something like that and she began buying quart containers, and it was a big day when I could make my own saturday breakfast adult trust, and no intervention!

I think yours is a neat idea; kids have “natural” goals for themselves, that we so easily forget, as “big people.” I think it will be cool to look back and say “look at all you’ve accomplished!” Heck I need to be reminded even as an adult…

Pretty cool!

Apple’s thinnest tablet will receive an upgrade in the next version, the iPad Mini 4. The device is slated for an October release, yet nothing has been confirmed. Apple users should be looking for a definitive announcement in the coming months.
