Yesterday, and some today too, depending on what grade/stage your kids are in was first day of school picture day.  Kids are all holding up signs and saying what grade they are in, how old they are and what they want to be when they grow up.  I saw everything from an architect, to a police officer, to a pilot and even a DJ.  That kid might want to rethink that.  Kidding....

And why didn't we think of that when I was a kid??  But anyway, one little girl. who is completely adorable, when asked the question. "what do you want to be when you grow up" answered "17".  Honestly, best answer ever! Who wouldn't want to grow up to be 17??

It reminded me of the show "Kids Say the Darndest Things".  Whatever happened to that show?  It was awesome.  And little Elle would steal everyone's heart, I'm sure.  Her parents are always posting the funny things she says.. and I think instead of being "17" when she grows up, she should think about being a talk show host or comedian.  A la Ellen Degeneres.  She is quick witted, and I think she has a bright future in show business....I mean Elle, of course.
