When I grow up....

As a little girl I dreamed of doing many different things.

I wanted to be a nurse, a teacher, a veterinarian, a ballerina, and always a mom.

As a mom, I have done so many of those things, in some form or another. I homeschooled my children for 4 years. I am nurse to my children and husband. I am a closet veterinarian for our animals. I dance my way through each day, and though it may not look to others like ballet, I know the complicated twists and twirls that are required to make it through.

Now, I've FINALLY figured out what I REALLY want to be when I grow up. I have actually known for a while, but now that my children are getting older and our financial situation is a little more secure, and my husband has figured out what HE wants to do with the rest of his life....NOW I can start working on what I want to do.

Come, be inspired with me....

Oh Laura! I think you would make a wonderful doula! Such a wonderful way to live out your passion while helping others...plus, your calming presence would be a HUGE bonus during labor and delivery. You go, girl! :)

I think you would be a great doula. I wish more people knew they existed and used one. I think they also help husbands be better coaches:) My doula happens to be my best friend and was there for my last two births.
