Was what my mother asked me when I told her I *was going to culinary school. 

"Because I fucking WANT TO!" was my answer.

Any other mamas ditch their careers and go follow their passion later in life?

*Seriously?!  No one caughter that and pointed that out to me?!  Grammar Nazis have FAILED me!

I am 31 and I am starting culinary school on August 25th! I have spent most of my life being a direct support provider for adults with developmental delays.

I am staying as FAR away from pastry as the program will let me.  LOL!  I am NOT a pastry chef.

My aunt makes millions a year and went to culinary school because she enjoyed it. She is in her sixties. Mom's can be so weird.

My mom did when she was 47. She loves driving a big rig and says she wouldn't change it for the world. Go for your dreams. :)
