Don’t tell her I’m doing this or she’ll absolutely kill me. I swore I wouldn’t share this, but I can’t help it.
It’s natural for a child to want to learn more about their parent’s profession, right? My bashful 9 year old daughter, Leah, has always shown interest in what we do for a living and like most little girls, she wants to be like her mommy when she grows up.
As much as I’d like to see her set a higher bar for herself (“Wouldn’t you rather make money when you grow up, Sweetheart?”), I know the feeling, as I was raised by a man who worked in broadcasting as well. As a youngster, my father would use my voice in commercials and record cassette tapes of me as “The Mighty Chris” doing “shows” as early as age 4.
We’ve had quite a bit of time off this holiday, so we took to our home studio (a must if you want to infect a child with the radio bug at a young age) and hit ‘record.’
This is her first episode of “Opposite of Adults” (we’ve been listening to a lot of Chiddy Bang in the car) where Leah ranks her favorite travel destinations. My takeaway? We need to travel more as a family. A challenge I am more than happy to accept.
