When I grow up...

Do you remember what you wanted to "be" when you grew up? I remember desperately wanting to be a Dallas Cowboy's Cheerleader. My sister, Karen, and I had these awesome blue satin jackets with the big star on the front. I thought I was hot stuff. Sadly, that dream went away, but was replaced by an even bigger, better dream: to be a mom.

I love, love, love to hear my kiddos talk about what they want to be when they grow up. They have all decided to go to Texas A&M (although Meg is sad that they don't have cheerleaders - taking after her Mama)! After that, who knows?

This is college/career week at Megan & Hannah's school. Today, the kids all got to dress up as what they want to be. Megan has (for quite some time) debated between being a chef and a teacher. Casually, I told her that maybe she could go to culinary school and then be an instuctor there. She latched onto that for a while, but recently changed her mind. Instead of teaching other chefs at school, she's decided that she wants "to be a TV chef, just like Paula Deen, and teach everyone"! I knew she was a smart one!Hannah is constantly changing her mind, which, at 5, is totally expected and encouraged! She's always asking me things like "can you be a mommy and a ballerina?" or "can you be a mommy and a vet?" With her sweet nature and love for babies, it's no wonder that she always makes sure that moms can do anything! For career day, she decided that she wanted to be a doctor. Not just any doctor, but a doctor who takes care of babies and kids (notice a pattern here?). As we were getting her outfit together from our dress-up closet, she said, "I wanted to be either a doctor, or a pop star. We just don't have a pop star suit, so I guess I'll go with doctor!" Cute little stinker!With the girls' sweetness and big hearts, I know that they'll excel at anything that they decide to do - even if it is being a pop star! ;-) Love, love, love them!

So fun! I was a nerd child, and knew from the beginning I wanted to be an architect and a mom. I dropped the architect about 8 years ago, when I became a mom! So great that your girls think your "job" is enviable! You're obviously doing a great job!
