A Mother's Dream

Shhhh, baby is sleeping so time to right a post........

So I definitely don't want to be one of those mother's who force their son's to be something that they necessarily don't want to be, you know live my dreams. Of course he has to do well in school, attend a good university, leave home and find a place for himself and get a job....other than that I have no expectations. Well I do imagine certain things for my son...I guess it's natural for every mother. From when I was pregnant my husband and I would discuss what we saw our son doing in the future. He had those typical thoughts of his son studying mathematics at Cambridge and then for some reason I saw him becoming an Olympic swimmer. Then he could wave three flags while standing on the podium, The Jamaican, The Italian and the Scottish....even though I guess technically he will probably be swimming for Great Britain. So we have started this journey to Olympidum by attending water babies classes. Thankfully he appears to be enjoying the water and from the first class they were dunking him under the water.

But its probably just a mother's dream and I can look back at this and laugh or who knows maybe we will be shouting for Francesco in 2028 and I can say I told you so!

  1. really glad he's enjoying the swimming lessons. Laila will be in the 2020 or 2024 Olympics for gymnastics! She'll have to compete for France as I'm not letting her move away too young for training!!!
