My Ambitious Babes
A few weeks ago at dinner we were asking the kids what they wanted to be when they grew up. Here's what they said:
Jack: A garbage truck driver or a doctor.
Anna: A fire chief, a nurse, or a mommy.
Lily: A big girl, or a mommy. :)
When asked what Max was going to be when he grew up, I was met with confused looks, and told Max wasn't going to grow up. He was going to stay a baby. *Sigh* if only that were true...
And speaking of ambitions, here's something for the rest of you to make fun of me about. Heaven knows I haven't heard the end of it from my husband( and now my dad!) A couple of Fridays ago, on our date night, Erik and I were having a romantic evening. We got to talking about our future and what our goals were. Aside from the obvious things, like wanting to buy a house one day and hoping to be more secure financially, Erik also mentioned his desire to travel and do some mission work once our kids were older.
And that's when he asked me if I had any other ambitions or goals that he didn't know about.
Now before I tell you what I said, please keep in mind that as far hopes and dreams go, I'm living them. I've always wanted to be a wife and mom. Ever since I became a Christian, my heart has been that I wanted to be a homemaker, and take care of my family. You also need to understand that I am loving learning to eat healthier, and I'm always trying to figure out ways to stretch our budget in order to buy quality food.
So when asked what my goals were the first thing that popped out of my mouth was,"I just really want to be able to buy really nice meat."
And I haven't heard the end of it ever since.
Yes, my husband wants to travel and spread the gospel in other countries.
And I want to be able to buy "really nice meat."
