Welcome to my blog “When Mom Grows Up”.
I am an Catholic Army wife, mother to 6 children, and aspiring writer.
I grew up in the Army and have been married to it for nearly 2 decades.
As a child I dreamed of growing up to be a professional woman…I never dreamed of staying home and being the housewife/mommy-type. But, as is often the case, God had bigger plans for my life. And I have been very blessed and fortunate to be able to stay home with my children.
However, as I watch them grow into amazing young men and women, I am starting to have that gnawing feeling in my gut that there is something else I want to do in life as well. I want to tap into those “other” dreams that I had as a child, and understand what other purposes God has for my life.
I hope that this blog is not only a record of my own adventures in trying to figure out “what I want to do when I ‘grow up’,” but I hope it will be a place where others can discuss their dreams and callings as well. Welcome…
Now tell me, what do you want to be when you “grow up?”
