We went to the Aquarium over school break. It was a lot of fun because we went with our neighbors and took the ferry into Boston. You know how much I love a ferry! Hannah decided that she'd like to work with animals when she grows up. That's after she goes to school for fashion design in Paris. Oh to be young and have big plans for yourself.
I really never had any big plans for myself. I cannot remember a time when I said..."When I grow up I want to be..." I really just thought I'd get married and have kids. And that's pretty much what I did. You see, I never finished college and for a long time I was embarrased and ashamed that I never got a degree. I'm over it now, but it took me a long time to get there.
During the years that my peers were off at college, I sort of bounced around...trying to find my way. I'm sure my parents were not thrilled but I just didn't know where I was supposed to be. I lived in different places, held different types of jobs..and just sort of waited I guess for my real life to start.
Once my "real life" started..when Steve and I got married...I felt like I finally fit somewhere. It only got better after that when we started having babies. I knew my place...giving birth, nursing a baby, making a home for my family. This is what I was supposed to be.
