Cheery no.

Is it wrong of me, as a parent, to say I won't attempt to influence my child in any way, shape or form in her choice of extracurricular activities?

To claim that I won't allow my own hopes, dreams, and dread-fear-of-rabid-pee-wee-football-types to influence my child's choices?

To insist that I absolutely will not attempt to live vicariously through my child?

And then to come straight home and say to my nine year-old daughter,  "Mommy will buy you a car AND a pony if you promise me you won't pee-wee cheerlead this year?"
