I heard someone say something the other day that really hit home with me. They said "I spent my 20's thinking I knew everything and I have been spending my 30's proving myself wrong." I can so relate! I think I relate so much to that because I realized a while back that I spent my 20's really thinking mostly about myself and my career and I have spent my 30's mostly thinking about our children and how I could stay home with them more and work less. I wouldn't trade my 20's for absolutely anything, It was such a blast and I loved my job at the newspaper. But then we had our first baby when I was 30 and well as most of you know babies ROCK your world! Parenting is so humbling and boy does it make me feel stupid sometimes. It's just so funny to me how focused on my job and career in my 20's I was and how the minute I had a baby all I could think about was how I could quit working. I am so blessed to be able to freelance about once a week.
I told Mike the other day that I'm fine with working a little more as the kids get older and in school but I want to be able to take them both to school, workout, pick them both up from school, and have dinner ready when he gets home at 5:30. Those few simple things make me extremely happy and grateful. I guess I'm old fashioned huh?
