Ben (who has always said he was going to be a policeman) told me today that he has changed his mind. He wants to be a construction worker and drive an excavator. He asked me if I thought he would do a good job digging up dirt. I said, "Of course, baby!" I then told him that he could go to work with Daddy when he gets a little older and learn how to use tools and stuff.

So, Andy says, "He needs to be fourteen. Because on The Brady Bunch, Greg starts working for his dad when he is fourteen." Ha! Thanks, Nana.

Andy then started thinking about his own career, and he said, "I don't want to work very hard. Maybe I'll be a babysitter."

"You don't think that would be hard work?"

"All you have to do is give them food and put them in bed. That's SUPER easy."

Well, I have set a fine example for him. Seriously.
