My toddler’s favourite song is I can be anything from the Teletubbies Ready, Steady, Go! album1.
We were listening to the song when I asked the boys what they would be, if they could be anything.
“A professional soccer player! What would you be mum?”
I thought for a long while, and as I heard the answer finally come out of my mouth I knew it was the truth.
“I would be exactly what I am, doing the job I do now, and being your mum, of course!“.
Was it due to my complete lack of imagination as an adult2? Or a confirmation that I’m very happy with how my life has turned out? I’m going to conclude it’s the latter.
What about you?
