All I’ve ever wanted to be is a mom. As a kid I didn’t really know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I would usually say a teacher if asked. Mostly because my mom was a teacher. My aunt was a teacher. My grandma was a teacher. After graduating high school I started buying baby clothes and keeping them in my closet. I bought a diaper bag and onesies. Pacifiers and bottles, AND I would show them to people!! Hindsight being 20/20 and all I realize I looked like a crazy person. If one of my girls is 18 and showing people her baby stuff, well, I might have a thing or two to say about that!! The whole point of revealing this little detail of my life is to illustrate that I’ve always wanted kids. I want a boatload of ‘em! I’ll have to settle for 4 because that’s where we are and where we’ll stay. My uterus is crying for a baby but unfortunately my husband’s (ahem) is not. If left up to me we would be the Duggars.
These days I am mostly a stay-at-home mom. I waitress 2 nights a week at a great place with great people. Fun, good money, great food, and adult interaction. All good things, but I’m really made to be a mom. We have fun, my girls and I. We laugh a lot. We cook, we garden, we walk, we create. It’s what I was made to do and I love it.
