When I Grow Up

Today while standing in the grocery store line Brooklyn informs me of what she would like to be when she grows up.

Brooklyn: "Mom do you want to know what I want to be when I grow up?"
Me: (Very curious) "Why yes Brooklyn I would love to know."
Brooklyn: (Serious tone) "I want to be a Vegetarian."
Me: (Little surprised. However maybe she feels she will be better at eating vegetables when she grows up.) "Do you know what a Vegetarian is?"
Brooklyn: "Yes, they are doctors that help animals."
Me: "Well, Brooklyn a Vegetarian is not a doctor. They are people that enjoy eating vegetables and fruit and stay away from meat products."
Brooklyn: "Huh? Then what is a doctor that helps animals."
Me: "They are called Veterinarians."
Brooklyn: "Oh, yeah that is what I want to be."

Those that have been around Brooklyn know she is deathly afraid of animals. So I am sure she will examine the animals through a small window behind a locked door.
