Where is the money?
We shared this with some family and I felt worried afterward that they might think we are ungrateful. In fact, we feel so blessed to have Jared working right now when so many people are loosing their employment. We make ends meet and we are so grateful that I can stay home, etc...Still, this was too funny to keep to myself:
Gwen "Dad, you're not a REAL doctor" (notice this was not a question - Gwen doesn't ask questions, she just challenges)
Jared "Well, I'm still learning but I am a real doctor"
Mom "Yeah, if you got hurt and had to go to the ER, your dad would come in and say 'Hi. I'm Dr. Pelo...' and he would take care of you - stitch up your cut or give you medicine"
Ryan "But Dad, if you are a real doctor, where is the money?"
Kids pick up on EVERYTHING. It's not like we've sat our kids down and explained that one day we'll make more money than we do now. But then again, how often do we say " when you get a real job, we'll do... or go... or buy salmon..."
