When I Grow Up (from “When The Roll Is Called A Pyonder”

(Release date: August 19, 2014 by eLectio Publishing)

I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up. I can’t decide. I don’t want to be a mommy like Mommy and I can’t be a farmer like Daddy because I’m a girl. I think maybe I’ll be a rock collector. I like rocks. I like to play in the lane and pick out pretty stones and bring them inside.

Then I see a circus on TV and I know what I want to be. I want to be an acrobat. I want to hang upside down on a flying trapeze and flip through the air. That must be the most fun thing in the world. I practice doing somersaults and standing on my head.
