House wife

The principal for Isaiah's school is retiring after this year. She has been around the area for quite a while as she was Keith's principal when he was in 5th and 6th grades, so I'm sure she is looking forward to her retirement.

I'm not quite sure how her name came up, but it was somehow connected with the jobs that Isaiah wants to do when he grows up. He wants to be a baker, a teacher, and a few other professions. I just can't remember exactly what they are.

In the course of the conversation, he asks Amy if he can do anything.

Amy: You can do anything you want to do when you grow up. You can even do more than one thing if you want.
Isaiah: Mrs. Rankin says I can only do one thing.
Amy: That's because she wants you to concentrate on learning something before you move on to something else.
Isaiah: Oh. Mrs. Unruh can do lots of things.
Me: Mrs. Unruh is retiring this year.
Isaiah: Is she getting a new job?
Me: No, she's just going to not be the principal.
Isaiah: Is she going to teach like Mrs. Rankin?
Me: No, I think she's just going to be a house wife.
Isaiah: She's going to build houses? Can I see her build houses? (Isaiah thinks "house" + anything else must mean you build houses. Probably because we had a house built in 2007.)
Amy (laughing): No, she's not going to build houses. She's going to stay home and just take care of her house.
Isaiah: Ohhhhhh.
