Just like you, but different
So far she has wanted to be;
She is fairly level-headed, and does claim to be not bright, even though she’s doing academically well at school, she really does put a lot of extra work on to make sure she’s a success.
Unlike Boychild who hated school, but finish out with some A level qualification, and then did get a full time job in a bakery (4am to 2pm), which really didn’t rock his world. Now having done a year at university he’s again with itchy feet and doesn’t really know what to do with himself, he does maintain however that he wants to be a games designer. I’m inclined to let him go for it, because no amount of counsel will change his mind or his habits or personality.
Daughter however is going to be a challenge, and I’m sure that she will be overseas on a work experience and well be a success at something, and will achieve a lot. I hope.
It does seem that neither of them want to achieve mediocrity, and they do seem to get that a house, two cars, two kids and a cat isn’t exactly “living the dream” for the parents. I’m hoping to be a kept man in my dotage.
