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.
