  • I feel the same way; I started going back to school last year but it's been tough because I'm kind of running through all the general education credits for my degree and don't feel like I'm studying the interesting stuff yet! I also recently started volunteering with an organization that interests me, and I found that to be a huge help. Gives me something to feel good about, I get out and get a break from the kids, and it's something I can tell people about when they ask what I do, instead of just saying "I'm a mom". :)

  • I have thought the same thing. I did go back to school at 31 and it was great feeling like I finally did something for me. I have 4 children and have been married 8 yrs...

  • I have always talked about writing a book. But I have never actually started the task until recently. It is so much better to live the dream than to just talk about it.

  • There are a lot of things that I really want to accomplish. I have my kids, my husband, a house, a car, so now I need to focus on things outside of that. I want to get into the photography field. I want to own my own business one day. I need to get my GED as well, maybe go to school. I really want to travel more.

  • I'm working on my bachelors degree right now because I kept putting if off for the kid's sake. I was very busy at one time taking care of them, but the school I work at told me I can get my own classroom if I earn a bachelor's degree. One more year and I'll be done. I always try to tell moms to take care of you too. I mean it's great that we're good moms and we want our kids to have our full attention, but we need to enjoy our life too right?
