Being a grownup

Dixie: I can't wait to be a grownup and do whatever I want to do.
Melody: But even grownups have to do what their boss says.
Dixie: Mommy, do you have a boss?
Mommy: Yes, I have a boss at work.
Dixie? What about at home?
Mommy: Well, Daddy and I are kind of like bosses for each other. We help each other make sure that we're doing the right thing and that everything gets done the way it needs to get done. And then God also tells us how to make the right choices and do the right things.
Dixie: But Grandma doesn't have a boss. She lives by herself and does work for herself. So I sometimes have to be Grandma's boss.

Hear that, Grandma?
