Last July, I mentioned in my “I want to be” post that my son wanted to become a chef so when I’ve learned that they will be having a Dress Me Up Activity, we immediately went to the market to look for costume. It was stressful because we only have three days to look for costume. I haven’t confirmed with my son if he wanted to become a chef but since he mentioned it two months ago, I searched for ready-made chef costume. It wasn’t easy, I was planning to look for tailoring shop but time is very limited and I’m not sure if they will accept rush order. I only bought toque and apron.
After school, I asked my son what he wanted to be when he grows up and he said chef. I was convincing him to be a nurse, doctor or engineer like his daddy so I won’t look for costume anymore but he said “No, I want chef!” so I showed him the toque and apron that I bought and he said “Thanks mommy, wash it na”. #inutasanagadako.
After dinner, my husband was also convincing my son to be an engineer or president but my son really wanted to become a chef so what can we do. My son is only in preschool how much more if he will enter college. hehehe! But deep in my heart, I felt so proud because as early as now, he knows what he wants and he has an ambition. I should be happy because he doesn’t want to be a janitor, bagger or a dump trailer driver. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with these jobs but I’m just happy that my son has a dream.
Last Saturday, we’re still searching for the costume, I saw a ready-made chef costume but unfortunately it is too small for my son and no more big sizes. I can’t find checkered pants so I just bought black pants. Then last Sunday, we look for a shop to personalize his toque “Chef Ethan”
