(I wrote this children’s story in 2009 when my son, Andrew, was 6 years old)
Sometimes Andrew is a super hero, always saving the day,
Sometimes Andrew is a dinosaur, hunting for his prey.
Sometimes Andrew is an astronaut, landing a ship on Mars,
Sometimes Andrew is a rock star, playing the drums and guitar.
Sometimes Andrew is a doctor, helping people heal,
Sometimes Andrew is a famous chef, cooking a yummy meal.
Why is Andrew all these things? Because he likes to play,
His great imagination helps him enjoy every single day.
When Andrew gets a bit older, he can be anything he wants,
But right now when he’s 6 years old, it’s just having fun that counts.
