Looking Up

"What are you watching, Mom?"

"It's a speech that Sandra Bullock gave at a high school graduation ceremony."

"Do you know her?"

"No. I like what I know of her though. She's an actress."

"Is she a mom too?"

"Yes. She has a little boy. She seems like a good role model. Do you know what a role model is?"

"Yeah, It's like a person that you look up to that shows you a good way to be by doing what they do."

"That's right. Who are your role models, Bob?"

"Well, you obviously. Dad for math and being a man. Caleb  Johnson from American Idol because he's awesome and always looks like he's having fun. All my grandparents because they're good at love. Morgan Freeman and Will Farrell because they're in the Lego Movie and that's awesome. Teddy is a good role model because of cuteness and he's always happy to see his people. This guy name Notch because he created Minecraft and makes fun games for people. And my friends because I learn about friendship and everything. Is that a good list, Mom?"


  1. In case you have ever wondered, you and Mr. R are fantastic parents. It's obvious that Bob is growing into an amazing and well-rounded kid. Thank you for being a good role model to moms, everywhere.

  2. That's a lot of looking up! ;-)


  3. That Bob. His conversations just never get old for me.
