Wife, Mummy, Nurse: What I Wanted To Be When I Grew Up {Summer #BlogChallenge}

What I Wanted To Be When I Grew Up {Summer #BlogChallenge}

When I was four years old, I wore sunglasses A LOT, but the thing about these sunglasses is the lenses were popped out.  No, I'm not showing you a picture.  I wore them because I wanted to be a "movie star" and movie stars wore sunglasses.

Then I went to elementary school, I then wanted to be a doctor, but then in junior high and high school, I realized that doctors have to go to school for how many years and then most likely be in debt FOREVER. So, I then told people I wanted to be a lawyer, and I have know idea what I was thinking at that point.

I went to college, I had no clue what I wanted to do after college {well I wanted to become a wife and a mother, but there was not guy in the picture}, but like the religion classes at Grove City, so I declared Christian Thought as my major.  Unfortunately, I caved in and added political science because after all, "Girls who major in Christian Thought are just here to get their MRS degree."  I actually regret taking political science classes because I didn't enjoy them and did not want to work in politics or government.  I then decided to go to nursing school to become a registered nurse, which overall I'm glad I did, but often people ONLY comment about how much money nurses make.  I got tired of replying, "I honestly don't care about the money.  I just want to make enough that I can live off and support myself."

The whole time, I ultimately wanted to be a wife and a mother, and now that has happened.  I am blessed with a husband and currently have one child-the pumpkin below.  It's a good thing I don't care about the money with this job, but the rewards are priceless.

  1. That is beautiful. And I completely agree. I was a journalist pre-children. Now my titles are wife and stay at home mom. I love it! I wouldn't have it any other way.
