Daddy, I Want To Be an Astronaut

Wow, watch that rocket go! I can feel the air hitting me from the thrust, just like you said it would. It keeps on going, up and up and up…wait, all I can see is the thin white exhaust trail now. Are they in space yet? I hope their suits will keep them warm up there, you know, since it’s so cold. Daddy, that was so cool! One day I’ll be in one of those. One day, I’ll be an astronaut!
