A Politician Or A Preacher



A Politician or a preacher...

Are what my father thinks Pooh will be be when he grows up. Mainly I think it's because Pooh will happily tell everyone and everything about his baabaa's, daadaa's and naanaa's....not necessarily in that order. He is gregarious...and animated....and I guess both of those are considered good traits for either becoming a Preacher or a Politician....



I am not so sure that when I was 14 month's old...my mom and dad looked at me and said....I think she'll be a mom or a....well....just a mom.....not that there is anything wrong with having that be your life's ambition.....heck I had no idea that it was going to be MY life's ambition until I was 28....(I come late to the party sometimes)....I see my parents looking at an absolutely adorable mini me...and saying "she'll be a doctor.....or a aero-space engineer...(okay maybe not that lofty)....or the best darn nail tech this side of the Mississippi...."


Maybe had I known my preset career path earlier....I would have gone to less keg parties in college...and applied to the pre-med program instead....I blame it on a BIG lack of communication.



Putting my pre-med goals aside...I am extremely happy with the path in life I've chosen thus far. I whole heartedly love the industry I was in for 6 years....which had my parents noticed how many times I dressed and undressed my Barbies...may have rethought their ideas about me in scrubs....or heading my own mulitmillion dollar marketing firm....



and...after years of the corporate world....I whole heartedly love being one under paid, overworked personal assistant to a future Politician or Preacher, with a small dream of having a one woman blogging/baby wear/mommy type empire....



This little thing we call Life is really quite funny.....dontcha think?



The twists and turns that shape and mold the directions and paths we end up taking.....



I mean who knows.....Pooh could follow in his dad's footsteps and give service to his country....


or


be a doctor





or artic explorer



perhaps a stunt man





or my favorite, nude model





I just know whatever he decides to do...he'll be brilliant....

OMG that's great!! I totally agree, you never know where life is going to take you! I think that being a mom is such a wonderful job and totally not easy! I hope to be there someday soon and although it's not looked upon like those other jobs it is just if not more important!! You rock :) I tagged you in a blog award on my page if you want it :)

Oh, I love this post...and the pics! Yes, life is funny...I could mull for hours over the me I used to be, the me I am now, the me I still want to become...and not to mention how all my kids will turn out. As long as my kids know, no matter what, they'll ALWAYS be good enough, just as they are.

This was a wonderful post. I wanted to be an actress when I was growing up. My mom wanted me to be a secretary (talk about lofty goals) and my dad said acting was too unstable as a career. He thought I should be an artist. Go figure.
