From Butcher To Baker…
When I was younger, I never really imagined myself with kids. Sure I played “mom” or “house” when I was a kid, but as I got into my teen years I didn’t really see a future with a house full of kids. My dream was to get married, have a great job, live in a condo in DC and go out to eat all the time. Yeah, not much of a future but I was only 15 and although I wasn’t sure of what I wanted out of life, I knew that kids wouldn’t be included.
Fast forward to present day, and here I stand in all this motherhood glory. You’d think for someone that didn’t want any kids I’d learn to use a condom or two, practice abstinence, or anything to keep my uterus vacant. Of course I wouldn’t change my life at all. There isn’t anything I’d do different to obtain an alternate outcome. My kids have actually made me the woman I am. Yes, I know that sounds corny. But really, look at my resume!
Outgoing mother of four with a BS in Social Science, MS in Human Behavior and +16 years of experience in raising children. Seeking to leverage my baby talk and professional booboo kissing skills to grow in the updated role of millennial mom. Looking for a position where I can integrate strategies to develop and expand the minds mini human beings.
