When I Grow Up - Hopes & Dreams
When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up? I always wanted to be a kindergarten teacher, but my Mum tells me I wanted to be a ballerina long before that.
Julia (Miss 3-and-a-half) wants to be a princess and a builder. A sort of a Princess Bob I guess. She wants to build houses while she is waiting for her Prince Charming. She dresses up in beautiful flowing dresses and pretty shoes, together with a hardhat and toolbelt. We play Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella (I get to play the role of the Prince). Then she "fixes" my furniture.
I never did become a prima ballerina (actually I never did ballet at all), nor did I teach kindergarten, but I hope I'm giving Julia some valuable lessons in life. I keep telling her she can do anything. Hopes and dreams are wonderful things aren't they?
