Have you ever thought about all the things you wanted to be when you were a child? Are you ANY of the things you wanted to be?? I am one of them. A Mother. I remember wishing and hoping and praying my dolls would suddenly come to life! LOL! I LOVED my baby dolls! All I ever wanted was to be a Mom. Of course, I didn’t imagine myself as a single Mom, doing it alone, with my family, but, being a Mom was important to me. So, here I am.. A Mom to an ALMOST 4 year old little boy who is just the BOMB! 🙂
All the other things I wanted to be? Yeah, none.. Here’s a list of everything I wanted to be when I was a little girl.
- Fashion Designer
- Hair Stylist
LOL! 🙂 My childhood best friend and I used to get BIG pieces of paper and draw houses. Not the outside of the house like a kids drawing… But the layout of the home inside… We’d spend HOURS drawing, writing, erasing, filling in, etc! We liked making them ELABORATE! We’d try to add more stuff to ours.. A hair salon, a pool, a bowling alley.. LOL! 🙂 We had THE BEST time! I truly thought back then that I could be an architect. 🙂
The Fashion Designer thing cracks me up.. I AM TERRIBLE with Fashion. I know plenty about hair styles and colors, and make up, etc. But clothing and shoes?? NO WAY!!! I’ve never cared a whole lot about clothes and shoes. Even now to this day, I have like 3 pairs of shoes TOTAL… ONE Pair of jeans, that kind of thing. LOL!!!! I just don’t care. But back then… I would draw clothes, design them, color them, etc! 🙂 I was good… HAHAHA! Yeah, right. I wish I still had those drawings!!!!
A writer.. Oh my goodness… I TRULY thought I ROCKED as a writer! I REALLY wish I still had my stories from way back then… I remember in the 3rd or 4th grade (I was in public school then), we had to do some creative writing. I remember writing a story about a dinosaur and my teacher loved it! I was very descriptive! 🙂 I remember getting a 100 and she praised me for it! 🙂 My baby sister and I used to sit around and write stories. 🙂 I thought I was awesome… We used to read the Baby-Sitters Club series.. First of all, THOSE BOOKS ROCKED! LOL! 🙂 I LOVED Them!!!!!!! I loved how descriptive the author was with their clothing and accessories, and the snacks Claudia had stashed everywhere, etc. I wanted to write books like that. I wanted to write books that made you FEEL like you could see the characters.. Smell their perfume and shampoo..
Now… Here I am.. almost 35.. a Real Estate Photographer and Mom… Wishing I’d done some of those things. I told my family just the other night how I wish I’d become a writer! They said “So do it”.. LOL! 🙂 Ummmmm, no. LOL! I don’t have the first clue what I’d do…. How I’d begin. Sure would be fun though!
One thing I didn’t know about as a child, but I am… SCENTSY SUPER STAR CONSULTANT!!!! WOOT WOOT! 🙂 Now THAT is an AMAZING part of my life! I am SUPER glad that Scentsy came into my life when it did!
So, I am a Mom, a Real Estate Photographer, and a Scentsy Consultant….. My life is pretty full! I shouldn’t complain, that’s for sure!!!!
What did YOU want to be when you grew up? Are you doing anything you dreamed of being!?
