My Retirement Plan

Many people pay financial counselors to help than plan for retirement. After a recent conversation with my four year old, I've decided to tell IRAs, Cds, and the stock market to kiss my grits.

We were discussing the future, and I asked Natalie what she wants to be when she grows up.

Her reply?

A doctor "what helps mommies' babies pop out of their tummies."
Cha-Ching!

She'll be busy with her kids "Davey, Adam, and Emily," and her dog "Buster," but she's promised to make time to visit me and build me a house next door to live in.

I think I'm pretty much set, huh? If she throws in a weekly trip to Starbucks, I will have lived a good life.

  4. Oh, yes, you're set. Mommies will always be willing to pay the doctors what help babies pop out of their tummies.

    And since she's your daughter, Dr. Natalie will have a cute purse to carry all her cash. :)

  13. Get her to sign off on doing it now. Have it notarized and make her stick with it! Seriously, I have one that wants to be a writer and another that wants to be a teacher and one that is trying to find a job where someone pays him to hike.

  16. OMG- that was adorable. I just read your last post too- you are ambitious! I have zero talent for anything that involves me being outside. I've decided to let my hubby have complete control of the outside of our home, come what may!

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
