If I could be anything in the world {Blogging with a purpose}


It's Monday! Conrad had some time off for a doctor's appointment and his 30th birthday! It was a busy but fun last few days.

Today's prompt is, If I could be anything in the world.



As lame as it might sound, I'm doing what I want to be doing. I love being a wife and mom. I like not having to answer to a boss. I love deciding what to do that day. Play date today? Sure! Grocery store tomorrow instead, why not! I love watching my kids learn and grow. Watching their relationships with each other grow. Even when the days are long and I have teething little ones tugging at my legs and a big kid complaining about being bored, I know that this is what I was meant to do and it really is what I want to be doing.

I like being here when my husband comes home from work. I like attempting to have the house clean and dinner almost ready for him. I like making our house a home. I like being able to tell him how the day was and what we have going on.

I didn't always want to be a stay at home mom. Growing up, I always wanted to be a teacher. I wanted to help kids learn. Teach them their letters and how to read and math and do all these fun things. Then after high school something changed and I didn't have that desire anymore. I stopped going to college because I didn't know what I wanted to be. Everything I thought I wanted to do, just didn't fill that hole. I quit school and kept working and spending my pay check as quick as I would get it.

When I was pregnant with Aubrey is when I realized that being a mom, a stay at home mom is what I wanted to be. When I held that little girl in my arms, I knew I was meant to be at home with her and our future kids. It's funny because if you would have told me that in school I would have laughed.

I do feel blessed that I get to do my dream job every single day... and even some long nights and late nights.
