Growing up I had a million different answers when people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to be a teacher, a lawyer, an archaeologist, a doctor, an actress, a singer, an artist, a photographer, a designer.
I’m sure princess was in there somewhere, and who knows what else.
Right now my daughter is 3.5 years old and if you ask her what she wants to be when she grows up she gives one simple answer: An acrobat.
I am in no way surprised by this answer.
This kid? She was in gymnastics before she could walk and she LOVED it. She bounces more than she walks. She hangs upside down whenever she gets the urge. She loves to jump, swing, throw herself. She’s overall very bendy.
It’s a little ridiculous.
So yes, an acrobat. We can work towards that. Gymnastics, dance, fun. Why not?
