NaBloPoMo…Day 4

Today’s writing prompt: “When you were a kid, did you want to have the same job or a different job than your parents when you grew up?”

Can I say both same and different?  I wanted to be just like my mom when I was a kid, thinking about growing up, but at the same time, I wanted to be different than my dad’s job of working at a cement plant.  I had all these ideas for the career I wanted when I grew up, but my one heart’s desire was to be a housewife and mom.  Here I am, thirty years later, give or take, and doing exactly what I wanted to do back then.  And oddly enough, I’m satisfied with it!
