It's different...

My life has not gone in the direction that I thought it would.  5 short years ago, back in 2007, I was in the middle of college not even sure where I would be in the next 2 years.  I am a big picture kind of thinker and I thought I had my life planned.  I wanted to go to dental school and my heart was set on a school in Boston.  I wanted to be married but Fred was applying for medical school and I knew it would be hard to get into the same school so I wasn't planning on anything.  If I had to guess where I would be I would say I would be in dental school and married but I couldn't guarantee it would be to Fred.  A child might be in there somewhere but I always thought I wanted to be a working mother, yep I wanted it all: career, family, a great husband. 

I never would have guessed what actually happened.  I decided to postpone dental school (which now is no-go and I am completely happy with that) get married, move to Missouri, then to Ohio, have a baby, and be a stay at home mom.  I love my life, I don't think it could have turned out better.  Married my best friend in 2009.  I have gotten to live in places I never thought I would have.  And 5 months ago I had my son.  I am a stay at home mom and I think that is the best job in the world and I hope this is my job for the rest of my life.

It's funny how things work out.


  1. Isn't it funny how things work out? Once upon a time I wanted to go to dental school too! However, that obviously didn't work out and now I am still trying to figure out what I want to be when I "grow up." I am so happy you're happy as a momma, don't ever let anyone tell you its not a job, because it most def. is! You are so great with him!

  2. I'm glad you are happy with you life. It is a hard step having your first child but I find that you learn a lot about yourself when you devote your body and basically your entire life to someone else.
