I sometimes think about what kind of adults Zee and The O will become. I have an idea of what I'd like them to become. I don't want to lose sight of my role as parent, though. As much as I want Zee to be an artist and pro surfer and The O to be a musician skateboard punk, it's my job to help them reach their potential even if they want to be, I don't know, widget counters or something.
It looks like we're going to buy a house in the near 'burbs. Just watching Zee running around the backyard and having a blast was a big negative against the urban condo. She's a girl that needs her private space. Not to mention piles of freshly mown grass to plop into.
