Parental Ambitions


Okay, so i gave you a scary picture there in my previous post... barney the predator, growl!!! hahaha! Sorry for that! Zoie is scared of Jack O' Lantern and I had to kiss that pumpkin to show her that he's not scary at all. Ssshhh... I was a little freaked out as well.

Last night, I bought Zoie a ballet leotard. Although I haven't enrolled her to any ballet classes yet, I figured this can be her "what I want to be when I grow up" costume because she's always dancing around the house and hey, it was 50% off! personally, i don't want her to be a dancer though. I also don't want her to become a producer like her mom (moi!) and her tatay doesn't want her to become an IT person. Weird ba? But in the end it'll be her decision. I recognize my child's gift in taking pictures. At 2, she learned to use the digicam and now that she's 3, we're allowing her to take pictures of us and of everything from flowers to blank things like the wall. Lol! She takes pictures of her dolls and even reminds me to put the strap around my wrist so the camera won't fall to the ground.

I have a lot of respect for cameramen whether the medium is film, video or the classic - photography. I admire their eye for detail and the way they create the mise-en-scene. In my heart, I hope Zoie will develop her eye for detail. Admit it, some people who are already old still couldn't take good pictures. I know some. Lol! Wait... wait... am I wishing for my kid to become a film maker? Well, I'm not sure really but I hope she'll know what she wants before college.
