I am all about sports and music lessons that my kids will hopefully enjoy throughout their life. Do I think Hannah will dance for the Boston Ballet....most likely not. Will Stephen play major league baseball...doubtful. It's not that I'm not supportive..I am. Believe me...I spend my days driving kids to and from activities. I just want my kids to be able to hit a golf ball, a tennis ball, play the piano...ski down a mountain and sail a boat. All things they can enjoy 'til they're 80. I'm happy that Hannah is still dancing and that Stephen loves to play and is pretty darn good at baseball...but I think they'll thank me someday for pushing the other stuff.
I'm grateful that my parents thought it important also. I have fond memories of sailing lessons as a kid. My love of tennis started early in life. Both Steve and I have many family ski trip memories also. I want the same for my kids.
Hi there! I'm a wife to a great guy. When we met I told him I wanted to stay home and raise kids. He has let me do just that. And now 19 years, 4 kids, and 7 moves later we've started another adventure. We just moved to Paris! I like wearing aprons and pearls and am usually roasting something in the oven. I would happily go back to the 1950's but I'd miss the internet too much. This is a blog about my life.
