Heroes During Bedtime

harry potter10pm, Plum is still awake, happily chatting, while I desperately wish that she would just fall asleep.

Me: Good night, Plum.

Plum: Mommy when I grow up I want to make a mark in this world.

Me: I see.

Plum: I want to make a mark in this world like Coco Chanel, Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Harry Potter!

Me: Harry Potter is not a real person.

Plum: I know.  But I still want to make a mark like Harry Potter.

Me, secretly proud but not wanting to encourage her to talk any more than she already does: I see.  Ok.  Now please go to sleep!

Maybe I just missed a golden parental moment of mapping out how to make a mark in this world with my child.  But hey buddy, it’s one hour passed your bedtime, and even heroes need their sleep!
