Wow, how sweet to see this in the Indy!
When Arabella was two years old she said that she wanted to be a firefighter when she grew up. Then, she gave that up and decided at age three and a half that she would rather be a princess. My response was: "that's great, but what will your job be?"
I never wanted her to think she could skate by on pretty looks and fancy dresses alone. Among all of their other great qualities, I remind both her and her brother that they are smart.
Now that Arabella is all of six years old, she wants to use her intelligence to be a veterinarian and a farmer and an artist when she grows up.
Now that I am a bit older, I most often use my intelligence as a social worker, a UMD volunteer, and in countless attempts to entertain my family and friends with silly jokes and comments.
Cheers to smart women everywhere (maybe even in your own living room!)
