Affirmations and When We Get Rich

My six year old has lots of grand ideas. He is a builder and a planner. He is forever drawing elaborate plans of things that he wants to build with his dad. Our living area is always covered with train tracks, block or lego or duplo cities, trains, planes, rockets, boats and very often, the Titanic. He has spent countless hours thinking of ways he would have saved the Titanic. My favorite is to throw the anchor over to another iceberg and pull on the rope to turn the ship!

Anyway, when he proposes an idea, he is often told that it would be too expensive. So he has made a decision. We are going to be rich. He has not worked out the details yet, but that doesn’t seem to bother him. For the last several days, many of his conversations begin, “When we get rich, we are going to . . .” Every time I hear him, it makes me happy. I don’t know why. I probably should try and break the habit before he heads back to school from Christmas break, but I enjoy it so much I’m not sure I will. (This is why one should not have children when one is old enough to be a grandma!)

He is so positive, so sure. He is untroubled by the details, just knows it will happen. When we get rich. Is this an affirmation? Will he subconsciously start to take the steps to attain this goal? Will it work?

I choose to believe!

p.s. For all you people who think I am so material, well I am a little. Not a lot, just a little. I know I am rich in the ways that really count–family and friends, health and happiness. But, momma would love a new pair of shoes!
