When I grow up...

When I was little I wanted to reach for the stars...
I wanted to really BE something...
I knew I wanted to be a wife to a handsome man...
I knew I wanted to be a mom... I sang the song "When I grow up I want to be a mother...and have a family... 1 little, 2 little , 3 little babies of my own."
As time went on I thought I wanted to be a Marine Biologist because they got to work with dolphins... then a rock star... then a dance teacher...then a Solid Gold dancer...
I thought I wanted to be a mortician and follow in the daddy's footsteps...
I went to high school and college and decided I liked English and History and teaching...
1+1+1=3 !
I found my handsome man
& started having babies
I became a high school teacher and taught for 10 years.
Then I decided I wanted to just be a mom...
This is really what I want.. this is the best job ever!
My babies are getting big & are all in school
Sometimes I think I would like to be an aesthetician and give facials (pick zits for money)...
Somedays I like to sit and blog all day...
Somedays I like to sew or paint or play with my pictures...
I want a room of my own that I can use to create whatever I want!
I really like to entertain and throw parties.... I like my life to be a party!
It is crazy that sometimes I still wonder what I want to be when I grow up!
Will I ever grow up?

Why do you need to grow up? Don't worry about the future, just keep on being the great you that you are. Hey that's why we all like being around you. You're you, you're now!

I have a hard time imagining you as a history teacher. I'm sure you were great at it, but all of my history teachers were always gross old men. I could see you as an aestitician, putting fabulous MAC makeup on people after you get thier skin in order! But, you seem very happy and content with what you do now, and from what I've seen you are darn good at it! Your kids and hubby are lucky to have you.

Solid Gold Dancer....YES!!!!!

(Did you do some rebellette dances the other night in your living room?)

I think you are an amazing mom and what's even better is you've done many things. Now you can do what you love, raise your kids and create. It's what you do best! So build an addition onto the house or mark one of the rooms for when your oldest leaves the nest and have that be your sanctuary.

I love this post.

I knew I always wanted to be a wife and mother most of all, too. And I still have days now where I wonder what I should do when I grow up, and think of going back to school, or starting a business, etc. And for the record, I wanted to be a Solid Gold dancer too. We are sisters after all.

Never grow up. It's boring. I am fighting it tooth and nail. And as for your own room - JUST TAKE ONE!

Popped over from Tanja's blog. My kids all love that song.I don't feel very grown-up either,makes me wonder what chance my poor kids have at surviving out there in the real world. I am an aesthitician and that picking zits for money sure is fun:)
