Miles is absolutely obsessed with this necklace of mine.  I think it has something to do with his slight obsession with patterns and symmetry .

Today, however, I was enlightened a little bit more as to what this boy wants to be when he grows up.

[as he’s admiring said necklace and all of its details]

“When I grow up I want to study dinosaurs.  And rocks.  And while I’m digging for fossils to make dinosaurs with, I’ll find special rocks to polish.  Then I’ll make you all kinds of necklaces, Mom.  I want you to have lots of necklaces.”
