It’s not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can’t tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself. 
 ~Joyce Maynard


Being a mom has opened up a lot of things for me.  At the age of 16 I starting doing books for small businesses…. and I have worked ever since.  I of course got my high school diploma, took a few college classes ~ but I NEVER got my degree.

I absolutely want my children to go to college, and I absolutely expect them to never let go of their dreams.  Well, how in the world can I expect that out of them, if I don’t do the same?  

I make it known to them that I am focusing on fulfilling my dreams, and they are watching me do this…. in turn, I KNOW they will do the same with their life.  But why should they go to college and get a degree if their own mom doesn’t have one?  So, I’m going to college, my friends.  I’m actually starting this Spring semester and am probably NUTS since I hardly have time as it is, but it’s something I have always had as a goal.  And I’m diving in.  

I’m starting with classes that are in subjects that are of interest to me ~ psychology for now.  I’ll eventually go through and get everything done for my degree, but this semester is all about psychology.  I’m taking 12 credits in understanding people this semester.  

I want my children to be proud of me.  I want my children to follow in my footsteps.


What kings of things are you doing to grow with your child, to show them that we NEVER stop reaching for the stars?

    That is one thing I want to do is go back to school and complete a degree. I got married first and never finished. I hope I am showing my girls what they can do with their lives :)
