I have two nieces. Â They have been princesses, witches, models, pop stars, scientists, superheroes, and just about every other occupation you can think of. Â Of course, nothing could prepare us for the very creative ways that they go about fulfilling the tenures of their latest imaginary employment. Â I’m sure we can all relate.
The mess on the kitchen mats from the five-star chef. Â The crayon art on the walls from our little Picassos. Â Even the near flood on the floor mats from our bath-tub Jacques Cousteaus. Â They all serve to inspire us on the time where we really felt and thrived on the idea that absolutely anything we could think of was a potential occupation. Â
While we’re in the bathroom, let me tell you about my co-worker’s niece Emma.Â This little doll is a gymnast in the making. Â Her parents, being the good folk they are, have catered her physicality with gymnastics equipment and classes, the toys and tools that might make this little tike the next McKayla Maroney. Â This unfortunately, does not slow down the imagination and as she lacked gymnastic bars, she decided to do a little practicing with the towel racks in the bathroom. Â
Suffice it to say, these are most certainly not the ticket to fame and fortune, but might make for a good scowling form the folks. Â Lesson be learned parents: Keep the young ones occupied with the right tools and an extra bit of supervision.
