After dinner we were sitting around the table talking and the husband of the couple that we didn't know was asking everyone about themselves trying to learn a little bit about each of us. When he got to me he asked me what I did before I got married and had kids. I went on to explain a little bit about my time before kiddos....
On our drive home I asked B, "are you ashamed that I am always the only one who never has anything really to say about my past"? I never really accomplished anything before kids.
I had plans.....but other things seemed to take over at that time.
I was in school taking photography classes hoping to move on to an apprenticeship (which had already been set up) once I was finished with those classes but, I wanted to get married and in our lives at that time, the photography had to be put on hold to make that happen. I'm glad I married B back then and wouldn't change it, but I wish we could have found a way for me to finish what I had started.
I see or hear about all these other moms that finished school, or are doing great things and I can't help but be envious, even though I want nothing more than to be home with my kids! If only I had something about myself that I could be proud of!
