I could ask a profound question of grownups like…
“Any ideas what you will be doing in ten years?”
And I could get some profound answers, some unprepared answers, and even some who would say they don’t really have an answer. But what if I asked little kids that very same question? Or what if I asked them that question…and then I gave them a bunch of choices in the form of questions?
Well, since my specialty is writing for kids, I wrote a few of those questions so we don’t have to wonder. If you have kids, read ’em this verse and see if they have other thoughts on what they’ll be doing. I bet they’ll have some of their typical delightful ideas…
What will you be doing
When youâ€™re not doing what youâ€™re doing?
Will some pieces need some gluing?
Will your feet both need some shoeing?
Will your smile replace boo-hooing
When you hear a big cow mooing?
Will you watch some hot tea brewing?
Will you smell a pot roast stewing?
Will you see a bear pursuing
When you go somewhere canoeing?
Will it all be your undoing
When youâ€™re doing what youâ€™re doing?
