“You already have the job, Mom!”

February 22, 2009


“Whatcha doin’ Mom?” the 5 year old asks.

“Working on getting the Island caretaker blogging job.”

“That’s silly!” he giggles. “You already have the job, Mom! What are you, nuts?”

I love him, love this boy, love his confidence. He’s all ready to go exploring. In fact, he made this painting for me in school. This is his description:

“It’s you driving a boat,” he says pointing to a stick figure in black on the left. “Those are your hands sticking out and you’re holding the steering wheel. I couldn’t really make the head though. This is the bestest head I could make because these black things were sticking out so I had to make it like this.

The waves are carrying the boat,” he continues. “You’re driving to the Great Barrier Reef. There’s not very much room at the top so our stuff is down here,” he says pointing to the yellow objects beside the ladder.

What’s the brown part on the right? I ask.

“That’s the part where you can go up and see if you’re getting closer.”

He’s sorry the sun isn’t in the picture, but I reassure him I love it anyway.

Just in case you’ve missed the video about the Island caretaker job–or you just want to watch it again!–here it is on the official site. Please help the cause with 5 stars! The more views and the more stars the better!

Here it is on YouTube where you can also rank it and leave comments too!

Then when it’s live on the official site, I hope you will go vote for me!

Thanks, friends!
