The Seed of a Policeman

2 October 2008

Callum as a Policeman

When I was 5, I had the most amazing kindergarten teacher.

She made such a strong and positive impression on me that I remember thinking at the time – I want to be a teacher, just like her, AND I want to be an artist, just like her.

It’s funny how some of my strongest passions now, were formed at such a young age.

Which brings me to my thought for the day.

When asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” my 5.5year old will say with absolute certainty “A policeman.”

He’s been saying that for the last 2 years of his life.

And I often find myself wondering whether it’s just a BOY THING?

Or if in fact he’s got a seed planted in him, and only time will tell if things will turn out that way.
