What do you want from life?

The following is an excerpt from a conversation last evening between Jeanne and our 11-year-old daughter. They’d made a social visit to a woman who Jeanne’s assigned to as a visiting teacher, and she (the woman they visited) shared some cookies she’d just baked with them. On the way home, the conversation apparently turned to goals, and what our child wants to be like when she grows up:

11-year-old:Those cookies were really good.
Jeanne:Yeah, she bakes really well.
11-year-old:One day i want to be just like that.
Jeanne:You want to learn how to bake?
11-year-old:No. I want to visit teach someone who makes good cookies.

Teaching our children priorities and goal-setting: We’re doing it right.
