When I grow up, I want to be just like daddy...

... said Ben today. Let me explain the context. I was helping Ben with his homework by showing him a few rudimentals of Excel. He then said "I think I might take over Dad's job when I'm older. It's a really cool job" (A year ago, Mr Humdrum and his friend set up an architectural technical firm.) I felt really pleased that he'd said this, and asked Ben to repeat it to his dad when we were in the car a bit later on, going to football.

So he did. When pushed for more information, here were the four reasons why Ben wants to follow in his father's footsteps:

  1. He doesn't get bossed around by anyone.
  2. He can go and have a poo if he's feeling bored with his job.
  3. He can have snacks whenever he likes.
  4. He can play hide-and-seek with the other two there for fun.
And that, ladies and gentleman, is why he thinks it's a really cool job.
