when I grow up
This week's CHBM carnival was yesterday. Again, always late to the party.
But speaking of parties, the prompt is What's your dream job? Mine would be a children's party planner.
Weird to say since I really didn't like children until I became Mom2Amara.
And I'm sure a lot of people would think "dream job" and shoot for something like Hollywood actress, hot shot lawyer, or President. But not me. It's so cliche but I'm happiest when those around me are happy, especially when those smiles are on the faces of children.
I am no Martha Stewart. And I can't throw a party like my cousin. But I try. Halloween typically is when I show off any creativity. But this year, Amara has asked for a Princesses and Knights party -- I was hoping for something low key like a Build a Bear party. But that's OK. I can do the sandwiches encrusted with "royal glitter." I can have the kids decorate their crowns and shields. I even know that I'll need a castle. I'm prepared.
And I think I could do it for other themes too.
Maybe when I grow up I'll get to live out this dream.
Or maybe it'll just have to wait for another lifetime.
