Ruth’s SOLS: What’s your mom do?

Yesterday afternoon, my oldest daughter and I were driving home from school shopping.  Our conversation was one in which I was asking questions regarding important info that she should know — things like telephone number; address; parents’ names — and she was answering.  Then came this snippet:

Me:  What’s my job?

Hannah:  What do you mean?

Me:  Where do I work?  What do I do when you’re in school?

Hannah (thinks for a moment):  Oh yeah, you’re an artist.

Me (heart melting):  Thank you Hannah.  You’re so sweet.  I always wanted to be an artist.  Though what I do for a job is teach.

Hannah:  Maybe.  But what you’re good at is art . . . and being home with us.

Huh.  I really couldn’t think of anything else to say.

  1. That is so cool to have your daughter think of you as being really good at art and being home with your children. I can just imagine the melting heart feeling. Way to go Mom!
