One Step forward and two steps back

Lately with all the talk around my house about momma going to school, my kids have been having a field day with the idea that I will have homework and I will have a teacher and I have a school bag. OK really the school bag idea is the funniest to them :)

They also think its funny when I say I don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

Their all like MOM you are grown up, remember we have to do what you say because YOU pay the bills and if we don't like it, it will get better when we grow and pay our own mortgage!!

(Seriously, they really do listen. Who knew?)

Well after I met with my advisor (excuse my smirk right now), the very young and very thin and very cute advisor was in stitches as she talked with me. Apparently I'm funny and charming when I'm trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

Again, WHO KNEW?

We talked about my reasons for entering school at this stage of my life, my likes (writing, cooking, talking about my kids :), what I did up until now and how REALLY nice the weather has been, you know all the important things you talk to an overly peppy, cute, little advisor about.

At the end of the meeting, I took away from it that maybe I should major in Communications of Journalism and Media. In the Spring I will take a Communications class and hopefully know after that if this is what I want to "declare" as my major.

Still haven't quite figured out the whole "being grown thing".

But at least I'm one step closer to figuring it out.

I hope it just won't take me two steps back!

I'm still not sure what I want to be when I grow up either. I'm leaning toward being a teacher. The one thing I am sure about is being Tink's mom, it's the best job!

Yeah!! I have a Mass Communication and marketing degree and I'm a Realtor! You'll figure it out. Just enjoy the experience and go for a major with classes that intrigue you. What happens after that....well we all know there's someone else who knows that plan!!
