What did you want to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be an actor.. So, I guess I did that.. But I STILL sort of wish I'd gone to school for either broadcasting, advertising or something in the charity world of fundraising...

You? and did you get there or do any of it?

      I wanted to be a mom but to please those around me I went from nurse, to French teacher to missionary (the last actually led me to meet my husband :). And for a very brief time after a career day in high school a police officer.

      Yes, I loved French in school and did fairly well, struggled more with speaking it. Even on a French immersion trip to Quebec in tenth grade was not helpful because they knew we were English speaking by our accents and how we spoke French so they would speak to us in English. Talk about frustrating and cold water dosed on our confidence.

      In Canada, we were required to take French from 4-9th grades, then in high school it was optional.

      I think it's great you are trying to raise your daughter bilingual. I don't speak French well enough to even offer that to our children. If French is spoken slowly I can get the gist of what they are saying but not if they are speaking rapidly!

      Definitely! I always wanted to be bilingual. I just didn't stick with it.
