when you were growing up? Do you still want to be whatever you wished to be when you were a child or are you already living that dream?

I wanted to be a nurse or a teacher and a Mom.  Well, I got to be one of the three.  lol

From age 11 - 17 I wanted to be an aeorbic instructer when I grew up. I had a goal to be the first African American woman to own my own gym, and have my own exercise show on ESPN.

I have no interest in being a Zumba or fitness instructor of any type. After having my first c-section (I have had four) that dream was gone! I am proud of myself just for working out.

Since I was in preschool, I knew that if I had children I wanted to be home with them and be a SAHM.

I have been a SAHM for 21+ years now.

From the ages of 7 to about 10 I wanted to be a teacher or a nurse. Then all I honestly wanted to be was a sahm, because that is what my mom was.
I was a sahm from 21 until about 7 years ago when financially I had to get a job, became an administrative asst. And was in this line of work until i lost my job at the beginning of 2013 and then found out I pregnant again. I would love to not go back to work and be a sahm again, but financially I will be applying by December to be an Admin. Asst. again.

From the age of 5, when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would answer, "A wife and a Mommy".  I am both those.
Other than that, I flirted with the idea of teacher, astronaut, singer, actress, writer.  But under and over it all, was "wife and Mommy"

I wanted to travel the world and dig up dinosaur fossils, it wasn't until I was older I learned the name of that was paleontologist. I'm a manager at a transmission parts company now, would still love to be a paleontologist!!!! I used to study books on dinosaurs and fossils on my free time when I was little :)

I wanted to be a teacher or a librarian. I work for an insurance company now. I'm not career-minded. I'm happy with my 9-5. DH is a teacher.
