When I Grow Up

I was reading something on a message board about what this parent wanted their child to be when she grew up and so I started thinking about what I wanted Piper and Finn to be when they grow up. Do you think that the aspirations we have for our children are a direct result of the accomplishments that eluded us in the past?

Ideas for Piper:
  1. Professional tennis player...her father's dream
  2. Dancer
  3. Writer, painter, photographer...any other artistic creative area
  4. Doctor
  5. Any career that would allow her enough money to take care of her parents in their advanced age

Ideas for Finn:

  1. Some sort of computer guru
  2. Teacher
  3. Musician...ROCKSTAR
  4. Mathematician
  5. Fashion designer

I would have liked to be any of these although I do believe that I have the most important, fulfilling, humble, creative, worthy, difficult, and genuine career...a mother's work is never done.

You have a great blog here! I will be sure to book mark you. I have a 60s fashion site. It pretty much covers 60s fashion related stuff. Check it out if you get time :-)
