When I grow up..
I have started reading Maisie some of my old Little Golden Books and found this one particularly amusing. According to LGB wisdom, a little boy can grow up to become a policeman, a lion tamer, a doctor, a cake icing expert, a fireman, a diver or an astronaut. Our little female tike's career choices are limited to being a damsel in distress awaiting rescue from a brave fireman, marrying a baker, being a policeman's helper, becoming a mermaid who serves ice-cream and tea to those hungry divers or a proud waitress dishing up "Moonburgers" to those hungry astronauts. Then, there is always the option of opening a beauty parlour for animals while pining the return of her lion tamer husband. The future looks bright.
