Is it any wonder...
that Fish woke up this morning, snuggled into bed with me and asked, "can we slap bad guys?" To which my thought is, "exactly what did you dream about?!"
I inform him that it would not be nice to slap anyone, bad guys included.
He then confides to me "When I grow up, I want to be a POLICE OFFER!!" (no, that is not a misspelling)
I have to admit that while I applauded his decision and hugged him and told him how proud I was of him, inside, my heart sank. I am embarrassed and ashamed that it did, but it did.
My selfish-self reared it's ugly head. I couldn't help but think of all the good men in this field today that put their lives on the line every day of the week all in the name of justice. I don't want my baby to fall prey to some "bad guy" out there.
Quickly, I admonished myself and considered that Fish's call may well be to become a POLICE OFFER, and who am I to stand in his way.
then I prayed it was just a phase...
