  • I always wanted to be a doctor. Then I went through high school, and decided I wanted to be a nurse. Halfway through nursing school I became pregnant, and now i'm a housekeeper lol. I would love to go back and finish nursing though.

  • I wanted to be a nurse, and I'm now halfway through my schooling. I quit due to finances, and then met my DH and got pregnant. Now that we are stable I plan on going back and finishing as soon as the baby is in school, but I wanna wait till then bc I want as much time with our son as possible first!

  • I wanted to be a fashion designer, an interior decorator or a vet - nope, none of that happened. But I did always want to be a mommy when I grew up - and I am.

  • I knew I'd be a writer. I wasn't sure if that was all I would be. I've had a couple of careers but it turns out that no matter what, I am always a writer. I published my first book last year and started on the second one already

  • I might add though - that I am still fashion conscious, have decorated our house and have animals to look after - so, while not being paid for them, I'm still interested in those things.
