Being a Mommy

Growing up I never said, "I want to grow up to be a Mommy". The job that I wanted after a visit to UCSB for a volleyball tournament was to become a Marine Biologist. Obviously, that didn't happen. And then when the televsion program The West Wing came on the air, I secretly wanted to be Allison Janey's character and become the White House Spokesperson. I mean honestly, doesn't that sound like a cool job?! Think of all the info that you would hear that the public wouldn't...I mean what really goes on inside the White House? OK....back to some of the jobs I have had over the years include working at a movie theater, selling paper with sand on it, and most currently selling boxes and bubble wrap. I know they all sound like glorious jobs and y'all are jealous. But I have to say that the BEST JOB IN THE WORLD is being a Mommy! Zachary amazes me everyday with the things that he does. He needs and depends on me, he charms me with his smiles, he entertains me with his ever changing noises and facial expressions, he cuddles with me, and there is no doubt in my mind that he loves me with all of his little heart! And I love him and am proud to call myself a mom to this little man!

Kim - I couldn't agree with you more! Being a mom is swell. I am so thankful to no longer be working in an office.
