5 Professions Perfect for My Baby
What will my daughter decide to do when she grows up? Sure, my baby is only 14 months old, but it's not uncommon for parents to think about their child's future, no matter how young she is. Well, if I had to predict what careers would be good a fit for my daughter based on her skills and personality at this very moment, I would say it would be one of these five professions.

My daughter is a natural when it comes to demolishing things. She’s particularly skilled in the areas of deconstruction (she does so regularly with toys, books and her brother’s multi-dimensional school projects) and in implosion when she’s in her nursery or the play room. She uses her body as a bulldozer and/or a wrecking ball. She doesn’t even bother to obtain the necessary permits or submit any notifications, however. She’ll have to work on that.

This girl needs her own Vegas show. She’s a true conjurer. Not only can she make anything disappear (her left shoe, my cell phone, the remote control), but she’s a skilled escape artist (from her high chair, her bedroom, her clothes). And her slight-of-hand skills are amazing. Her best trick is making us think she’s eaten all her peas, and we later find them tucked into her diaper.
My toddler would be a terrific salesperson. She can sell most people, but particularly her father and me, anything. When she tries to get us to sleep with her at night, we’re buying it. And when she won’t let go of the Beanie Baby she’s picked up in the less than five minutes I spent at Walgreens just to buy fingernail polish remover, I’m buying it. She has a way with cornering us and convincing us that we just can’t say “no.” It’s that smile and her firm handshake, I tell you.

The world is her canvas. Yes, she loves to work with different mediums–the couch, the dining chair cushions, the walls, her face, my face… and she loves to paint with things like food and liquids, and mom’s lipstick. She’s so avant-garde. You won’t see her doing still life though. No, “still” is not her style. She’s more of an “abstract” artist.

My toddler is showing all kinds of promise for a career as an actor. She’s made of drama. She can cry on cue, with the cue being any sentence that includes the word “bedtime” or “no.” And she really gets into the character. She could be up for an Academy Award for her performance in “So You’re Really Not Going to Let Me Have Your Diet Coke, Mom?” It was epic.
