Choosing a Famous Parent

This week's question: If one of your parents was to be a famous person from any time in history, who would you want them to be?

The problem for me is that many famous people were so focused on their goals that I'm not sure they were very good parents. (I'm sure there are some; maybe you can enlighten me.) Abigail Adams is my choice. She was a devoted wife to John Adams and mother to their children, but she also had ideas of her own in politics and religion; she wanted more rights for women and also opposed slavery. And plus, when I read her letters, I just like her.

What about you? Which famous person would you choose as a parent?


  1. I swear I think about this after leaving here but I never did come back with my last answer. Famous parent? I'm afraid I've always been a peasant. I've a peasant's heart. I don't think I could bear to have a famous parent. See? Incorrigible. I still can't answer.

  2. *laugh*
    Cinderella and Prince Charming???!!!
    Does that count????
    They are famous aren't they?
