Wiser than adults

Sometimes it's the youngest eyes that see the clearest.

Thomas told me yesterday about a chat he'd had with Anna, our five year old.

Already, at such a tender age, she seems sadly to have sussed what is wrong with the current world and what is really important...

Thomas always speaks to the kids in Danish, so I'll just translate it as this isn't the key point.

Thomas: 'What do you want to be when you grow up Anna?'

Anna: 'I guess I need to become a pop star so I can go on something like Big Brother and make enough money to be able to retire and do something interesting that matters like become a scientist!'

What a crazy world we live in, if this is how the youth see it.
