When I grow up, I want to be

Last July, I mentioned in my I want to be post that my son wanted to become a chef so when I learned that they would be having a Dress Me Up Activity, we immediately went to the market to look for costumes. It was stressful because we only had three days to look for a 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 costumes. It wasn’t easy, I was planning to look for a tailoring shop but time is very limited and I’m not sure if they will accept rush orders. I only bought a toque and apron.

After school, I asked my son what he wanted to be when he grew up and he said chef. I was convincing him to be a nurse, doctor, or engineer like his daddy so I wouldn’t look for costumes 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 knew what he wanted and he had 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 big dream.

Last Saturday, we were 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 looked for a shop to personalize his toque “Chef Ethan”
