What I Want To Be When I Grow Up

Brave Love Blog

This is the first time that I have decided to join in on a blog challenge. It looks to be fun and it will definitely give me something to write about everyday. Or at least I hope. You can catch all the prompts and join in your own posts at Brave Love

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?
First off I will answer this question as I was a child then now. 
As a child I wanted to be a lawyer.  As an adult I would still love to do this, but my life and the track I took put all my childhood dreams on a complete stall. I wanted to be a lawyer, live in Australia on a huge horse ranch. 
I was never really on the right track to head down this road because I discovered boys! This put me pregnant at 16 and married at 17 and a single mom at 19. I re-married at 20 had my second child at 21. Divorced again within 5 years then re-married again and another child at 30. (divorced again) Never take relationship advice from me! Now I am with Mr. Sexy. No more relationships for me.I am done. 
Still I had hopes of becoming a lawyer but with my age, this was almost 10 years ago..I knew I could not make it through a 4 year college and law school. I would be old and I did not have much confidence in myself so I did what I thought was the next best thing. I got my associates degree in Paralegal Studies. But this degree does no good. No one will hire unless I have experience. I can not get experience if I am not hired. At least this is the case where I live. Small town Arkansas. 

On to now!
I want to be the best mother to my children as possible. I have made many mistakes in my parenting. It is a very very long story. As of now I have my youngest child in my custody and 2 step children. My girls, 1 is with her dad and the other with her Aunt. I will say this much, they did not get taken from me due to neglect. I will say this........never go to court without a lawyer! You will get screwed. 
After this mess I was blessed with my son. Logan, he is 3 years old and he has autism. He is my inspiration! I am his advocate. I love my children and when I grow up I want to be the best mom ever! I strive for this everyday and will continue to do so until the day I pass away. 

What do you want to be when you grow up?

At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents.
