Discussion with my daughter

Discussion with my daughter

My daughter just turned 5 not that long ago, and I was driving her home from our day at the office, and suddenly she turned to me:

“Dad, has anyone climbed to the top of Everest?”

“Yes, lots of people.”

“I want to do that when I’m like 6 or 8.”

“I think  you should wait till you’re older and stronger. Like 18.”

“I’m pretty tough now.”

I must have raised her right. Or wrong?
