Becoming a Papa

It all started with a photo: Liz, our former Education Manager, visibly pregnant. We started talking with the small boys about babies, how they come to life and how they grow up. This naturally lead to a discussion where the smalls started thinking about becoming papas themselves…
  Sikander:
I will not become a papa because I don’t like girls.
They don't know how to play properly.
  Mohid (superexcited):
I like girls very much! I will be a papa!
  Rajesh:
I want to be a papa because I want my name to be honored.
  Shyamu:
I will not become a papa because I’ll be a Scientist and I’ll be very very busy with my work. Children would disturb me when I’ll have to concentrate on my work.
  Kishan:
I will become a papa because I want to teach to children. I love teaching.
  Lokesh (a little sorry):
I cannot become a papa because my moustache is not big enough.
  Zahid:
I will have a love marriage and I will have children, not more than 4 because they will have to fit in the car when I drive them to school.
  Sameer:
I will be a papa with a very small number of children (5 to 6, not more). I will make a robot for them because the robot will have lots of arms like a god and the robot will also turn into a car. That’s in fact why I want to be a papa, for the robot. I think I’ll play with the robot, too.

The imagination of the Kids are so good and cute. To be or not be a papa is really funny but I also see great motivation behind it. I want be a Scientist/I want to have a car/ whatever. They imagine a lot and in a very positive way at the same time. Kudos kids.
