with expectations that high, she'll be living with me forever

One day as we were driving, Katie was musing about what she wanted to be when she grew up. Like most kids, she has a wide variety of careers she is looking forward to. She wants to be a rock star, an artist, a store worker, a doctor, a baker, a waitress, and a librarian. Teresa, ever the realist, informed Katie that it would be practically impossible to be all those things at the same time. Teresa noticed Kate looked a bit downcast about that and quickly added, "Katie, there is a way you can be all those things! If you do a really really bad job at each job, you can be fired. And then you can do the next job, be really really bad at it and get fired. You can keep doing this until you've been fired from all those jobs!" This cheered Katie up immensely.

ha! I love it!
Timothy has big plans to attend "every single college in the whole world, so I can learn everything." Looks like neither of us will have an empty nest to worry about in this century! :)

Kate and T sound like a match made in heaven.
