As a teenager, my dream career was to be a Marine Biologist. I chose my college with this major in mind.
I had pre-selected my graduate school at age 17.
And then my course load forced me to choose between a teacher’s certification in Biology and a Marine Biology degree. And a handsome young man enamored me and I no longer wanted to travel across the country to graduate school.
Life happened. And I do not regret the career path that ensued–for I love my career in speech.
But maybe, just maybe, our Mini-Me will live out my once-dream.
Or maybe not.
This morning he said he wanted to be a dentist. Just like Super-Grandma.
