    We are 1 week away from Spring arriving! I know much of the country has been under SNOW or ice or mega cold weather. We have been under snow, rain, below average cold and more rain here in the Pacific Northwest! I am SO ready for Spring!
    We have had dry weather the past few days with warmer days and it has been OMG wonderful!!!
    Kids have been able to get out and play. Daffodils are blooming and I am wanting to get outside and get my hands in the dirt! Onions and potatoes to be planted, seeds to go in..... Spring FEVER has set in!
    So, in short...YES, YES, YES I am ready for Spring to arrive!!!
    What about you?

    poll-icon-jpg

    So, growing up.....I wanted to be a Mommy(age 5 or so), a Doctor(age 7), a Fighter Pilot(age 10) and a Marine Biologist(age 13). I became a Mom, no way on Dr. as I hate gore, fighter pilot died when I learned(then) that women couldn't do it and Marine biologist left the building when I realized I cannot swim worth anything and masks on my face scare the bleep out of me! So, at age 18 when I started community college I chose Early Childhood Education as I loved babysitting, little kids and had dreams of opening a preschool someday.

    Today, I am a Mom and I run a childcare/preschool from my home....so I guess some of my career dreams came true!
    My boys have plans! Oldest has wanted since he was about 8 to be a video game designer. At age 17, still same dream! WAY TO GO FOR HIM! Youngest, recently decided he wants to be a paleontologist! He asked to start learning latin and does most of his writing about dinosaurs.

    This week's poll is simple! Nothing to pick, just answer in the comment section!
    What do your kids want to do when they grow up?
