yes, there will be a whole generation of rebellious children, all insisting on eating turkey twizzlers, watching telly all day and boycotting organic food, fags hanging out of the corners of their mouths, whilst staying up all night.
we have discussed this lightheartedly over the years and now i am expecting my first child it has become an open topic again.
we are convinced our child/ren will be ultra boring just to annoy us. we have strong 'hippy' tendencies and dp is a musician so we are surrounded by musos and poets and the like. i have some friends whose children are so cool it is unbelievable. their daughter who is early 20's took her gran travelling round Mexico last year!
we are terrified our children will listen to dire music, have no interest in literature and be awful brats.
lol but then i don't think my mum and dad were too happy with how i turned out during my teens so i guess it would be karma!!!
As a mum I am pretty lazy, can't cook, don't keep the house very tidy, frequently run out of essentials like fruit and milk etc etc. But hey, Ds (17) has rebelled against my slovenly ways and is the complete opposite. RESULT!!! (Wish I could say the same about dd(12))
lol Mud I keep saying that dd is going to rebel by being an accountant too. Mind you I shant complain as long as she insists on keeping her parents in a style to which they could easily become accoustomed
Fully expect dd to turn to religion, be born again and take up banking. Only because i would be delighted if she started up a career as a garage DJ and moved to Amsterdam on her 16th birthday with her girlfriend.
DH and I are very boring and conventional and dh hates to travel esp fly (much to my frustration) so I fully expect dd to take off round the world at the earliest opportunity! - maybe I could go too!!!
I will have you know that I like music and travel too, cept now I can afford to stay in luxury hotels and not slum it in a flea ridden youth hostel
Culture does not correlate to the number of creepy crawleys you encounter in your bedroom
