It's not unusual for parents to wish their children grow up with the same interests as them. A sporty and athletic dad would like to have a little girl who plays football. A reader mom would love to share her favorite tales with a book-loving son.
Often times however, children grow up into entirely different beings of their own. And that's the beauty of it; that our children take on a life of their own, more complex and beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Other times, you get lucky and your kid ends up a Star Wars fanatic too. Like this dad in this Toys 'R' Us commerical.
