If I grow old, I'll never grow up

When I grow up, I wanna be famous, I wanna be a star, I wanna be in movies...
I am certain I am not the only one starting their post with this

Now that I got that song stuck in your head (your welcome), let's move on to today's topic.  What do you wanna be when you grow up?  If you asked me this 25 years ago I would have quickly answered with "a ballerina doctor!".  My reasons were simple: ballerinas got to wear pretty clothes and doctors made a lot of money.  My two year old dreams seemed realistic enough....until I was about 7.  

So, when Whitney and Helen announced their "When I grow up" link-up, I knew "Ballerina Doctor" would not be a sufficient answer.  But, that's okay.  I know exactly what I wanna be when I grow up (whenever that may be).  I want to be a mommy. 

That way I never actually have to give up any of the fun stuff.  Ya know, like swinging on the swings, eating popsicles on a hot summer day, playing outside until the last flicker of sunlight is left.  All that fun stuff.  Because the truth is, I don't really want to grow up.

Don't get me wrong.  I understand that motherhood will not always be pretty, in fact often times it will be down right ugly.  Poopy diapers, tantrums, endless messes.  I get that.  But I still believe that motherhood is one of the most rewarding "careers" there is out there, even if it is the  most challenging.  


We Can Do it!
