Of marriage, babies and career

We were on our way to attend my classmate's wedding dinner when she had this Q&A by herself.
Why your friend wants to get married? He wants to have baby like you ah?

While patting my tummy…
Mummy, when I grow up, I get married and have baby like you.
Phew!!! Lucky she gets the sequence correct. Let's hope she keeps to this sequence when she grows up.

While discussing sleeping arrangements…
Mummy, now I sleep with you and papa. When I grow up and get married, I'll sleep with my husband.

What she wants to be when she grow up…
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, when I grow up, I want to become a doctor.
Mummy: Wah, you want to become a doctor ah? Then you must study hard, you know.
Yiu Yiu: Why must study hard?
Mummy: Then only you can go to university and learn how to become a doctor.
And so these days, she'll tell me that she needs to study hard so she can become a doctor.

But sometimes…
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, why do I need to study hard?
Mummy: So that you can become a doctor when you grow up.
Yiu Yiu: No, when I grow up, I want to become a mummy like you.

And yet at other times…
Mummy, when I grow up, I want to become my colleagues' colleague.
