College Mom

That's right ladies and gents, the high school drop out is going back to school. I don't regret for one second that I left school to raise my darling little monster. Parents should raise their children, and if the mom can't be there, the dad should. I don't believe in having someone else raise my kid. Call me crazy, but I was the one to make her, I should be the one to care for her.

Now the stressful part comes. With me going back to school, someone has to watch stinky. I can only do so many of my classes online or in the evening. My dream job would be Pediatrician, but that is just way too much schooling, and time away from Sophie, than I am willing to sacrifice.

Psychology Major at Weber. Nursing Assistant at the DATC. I have to pick a major and school, then go from there. Money is going to suck. Being away from my family will be even worse. If Denny could be home with Sophie it would be that much easier, but sadly he works. Plus, both of our parents work. No winning. We'll fight that battle when we get to it I suppose.

Bring it on.

YAY! It's never easy being a parent and going to school. We're trying to figure out how to work that now ourselves. However, all the hard work is so worth it. I wish we lived closer, Sophie could come spend time with her cousins! :)
