What Do I Want To Be When I Grow Up?

I am still working on the answer to that question. Today I am supposed to write about my childhood dream job and what I do now. Growing up I had so many dreams of what I would become. There were so many things that I wanted to do.

I had several “dream jobs” when I was a kid.

1. I wanted to be a Laker Girl.



2. I wanted to be a Radio City Rockette!

3. I wanted to be a lawyer.


A Rockette and a lawyer? Yeah, my parents brought me up to believe that I could be anything! I was on the dance team in high school. I went to college and took classes to graduate with a degree in Political Science. Ha! Boy was I mistaken!

There are many “jobs” that I wanted when I was growing up and several that I did not want. I did not want to be:

  • a cook
  • a housekeeper
  • a chauffeur
  • a financial adviser
  • a laundry lady
  • a teacher
  • a banker
  • a professional organizer
  • a mover
  • a baker
  • a personal chef
  • a hair stylist
  • a therapist
  • a janitor
  • a lifeguard
  • daycare provider

Now that I am a grown up and a mother to four wonderful kids I realize that I became each and every one of those things that were on my “NOT TO-DO” list. But you know what? I wouldn’t change a thing.

What Do I Do Now?

1. I am a cook/baker:


2. I am a housekeeper/decorator/professional organizer:


3. I am a hair stylist:


Besides, I would have made a terrible lawyer.
