What do you want to be when you grow up?
Ryann has been on a...when I grow I want to be...kick. Therefore I have been thinking about what I want to be when I grow up. I have thought about this a lot and have realized I am what I wanted to be when I grew up. If, and when, I ever grow up.
First, when I was 5 or so I told my mom that I wanted to be a doctor. I have success. LOL No I don't have a degree and have never went back to school, but I am the most important doctor there is. I fix skinned knees, hold my little girl when she face dives off the swing, and stay up all night with a sick baby. I even can handle Erin when he does get sick. Most of you know that dads and men are the worst patients.
When I was looking at colleges (a long time ago) I had decided that I really wanted to go to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising). Yes...as seen on the Hills! Well I have successfully succeeded that design degree as well. I can move into a place and have everything decorated and organized in a matter of weeks. I am a master of making Ryann look beautiful! She gets to pick out her shorts and I have to find something else to match her lovely choice. Not an easy task some days.
Recently, I have looked into being a dental assistant. Yes...success. I brush Ryann's teeth every night.
One thing I never thought I would be, however, was a mom. I thought that maybe someday I would be a mom, but that was never at the top of my list. This one thing, well two, had made all my dreams a success. I love my children dearly and wouldn't change my decisions for anything. In my recent soul searching I have decided that I have accomplished everything I wanted to...to date. Not that I won't and shouldn't add more tasks and dreams to this list, but I am happy where I am today, and that's all I can ask for now.
I hope you all follow your dreams and reach for them no matter what, because if I can make this funny list of success you can also.
