As a kid, I wanted to be a singer because it seemed so glamourous. Then I wanted to go to the WMBA and be a basketball player. I wanted to be an artist at some point too. I thought about being a teacher. Finally, I decided on wanting to be an actress. Oh, and then I decided on being a very talented hairdresser too :)

When I got a little more mature and reasonable, I knew that all I really wanted to be, is a good mother. I felt like this is the big role I'll play in this life, that this is what my Heavenly Father intended for me personally to be. There are a lot of sacrifices and things we go without for not having a second income. There have been people who have made me feel worthless for what I do and shared their feelings of disagreement in the decision of me staying home to take care of Atalia. In ways, it has been really hard, but always well worth it.

I love my little girl so much and feel so blessed to be her mother.


  1. I love this! Being a Mom IS the best job EVER!! Don't let anyone ever make you feel like its not! Their Poop heads!! :) Ha ha No, but really! Love ya!

  2. Thanks Steph! It means so much to have some support! Love you!

  3. I love this, too! I had so many aspirations as a kid. I wanted to be a veterinarian and a famous singer and then a concert pianist. I think the world places too much emphasis in big careers when we're little. We've all heard it: "What do you want to be when you grow up???" And funny, so many of us end up being "just a mom." But at least we know we're not "just" moms. We're so much more and it really is the best!

  4. I agree, Abby! I even find myself saying that I'm 'just' a mom. I think that's because how the world sometimes makes me feel. It's something that needs a fixin' lol.
