When I get big…
I won’t have to eat all of my food—especially the stuff I don’t like.
I won’t have to clean my room or make my bed.
I won’t have to look nice every time someone comes to visit.
I won’t have to take a nap every day.
I’ll have playtime whenever I want.
I’ll have a big house with hidden treasures in every room.
I’ll be so fierce that those monsters in the closet will tremble in fear.
I’ll finally get to eat dessert first--or at least after every meal.
I’ll never get into trouble because I’ll always be right.
But mostly, when I get big, I’ll get to make all of the rules.
Mom says I should always dream big. I plan to.
