His future's so bright, he's gotta wear shades

We were out with Lion the other day and ran into a friend of ours and her four kids. It was the first time the kids had seen the baby and they were quite enchanted.

Fifth grader: He's so cute!

Third grader: Look! He lost his pacifier. (she puts it back in his mouth)

Mike: Thank you.

Fifth grader: Hopefully he won't be a thumb sucker like Garret.

The three girls glare at the two-year old.

Me: Hey! I think it's okay to suck your thumb.

Seventh grader: It's just that it's bad for his mouth. He might have to get into orthodontics.

Fifth grader: (wisely) It's okay for babies to suck their thumbs. But if you're a teenager, FORGET IT.

Third grader: What sports will he play?

Mike: Hmmm... I don't know. Maybe he won't play any sports. We'll have to see what he likes to do.

Seventh grader: Yeah, Claire. Not every boy has to play sports.

Claire: I know that. I was just wondering.

Seventh grader: Maybe he'll be a writer.

Fifth grader: Or a dog trainer. Like Cesar!

Claire: (dreamily) Maybe he'll have a hair salon and be fabulous.

The fabulous Lion has a message for E and Bearette:

I think, based on that picture, that Lion is going to be a motivational speaker.
