When you ask most boys what they want to be when they grow up they say “football player,” or “fireman.”
Not my boys.
Both of my sons want to be scientists.
The oldest is a good fit for science. He is uber-tidy, loves math and science and is fascinated by the world around him.
I think the younger one wants to be a scientist because he likes the idea of mixing things together in hopes of an explosion.
David brought a set of flasks and beakers home from school this week and made my children remarkably happy.
All weekend they have been mixing water, sugar and food coloring in their mad science experiments.
I just hope if they decide to follow their interest in science, they find a lucrative career in the process.
