- Sick child that thinks she has bird flu. *how does she know what bird flu is?*
- The discovery of Dance Moms. *I'm addicted*
- Husband working 14 hour days on an app. *i get to tell you about this one*
- The TV show Dallas. *connie passes wine coolers*
So....I've been tied up. But not really tied up. *connie bites her lower lip*
I just finished participating in a Twitter Party from EnlistMom and Pachas Pajamas where we were talking about our children's dreams.
Not the kind they dream at night.
The *what do you want to be* dreams.
It got me thinking about my childhood and what I wanted to be when I grew up. There was a time when I was 8 that I wanted to be an Avon Lady. I thought it was the coolest thing that we would go to this woman's house and she would hand my mother a bag of make up and perfume.
When I was older.....I really wanted to be a hair stylist. I was really good at doing hair and I loved getting my hair cut. The gals doing it always looked so great! Cute clothes and fun hair styles. However, I was discouraged. I was told that you have to do a lot of perms to make money.
Instead, someone else decided that I should be a Pilot and Air Traffic Controller. Seriously?
That dream was dashed when I failed my written test and could never land the airplane due to air sickness.
No one ever encouraged me to go to college. Instead, my new dream became moving out of my parents house and getting married.
Now, my dream is fulfilled. I'm married to a great guy and have the two best kids anyone could ask for. I consider it my job to make their dreams come true and support them in whatever they decide they want to do.
What is your child's dream? What will you do to make it happen?
