It’s Official!

We all went to Roy Thompson Hall yesterday to see Emma called to the bar. My dad was able to make it, and we were thrilled about that. Right in the middle of the ceremony my mother leaned over and said to me: “You know, you were smart enough to be a lawyer too.” For some reason, she's had this idea in her head for years, so I couldn't resist whispering back: “Well, it didn’t work for me so I had to force Emma to get with the program, Mum.” Seriously, though, I think Emma ended up becoming a lawyer because we “let” her do exactly what she wanted to do.
