S will soon be a year old. It's all flown by so quickly - that whole pregnancy-newborn-infant cycle. Maybe not all the time, but for the most part, I really loved being pregnant. I loved that feeling, when the baby would move or kick, that secret just between you and your baby. It's exhausting, but I love the connection I had with my boys while nursing. And there is hardly anything better than the feeling of a baby resting his head on your shoulder.
As much as I will miss all of that, I am really starting to look forward to the next stage in my life. That said, I don't know what I want to do during that next stage. I changed careers to become an elementary school teacher, but graduated shortly before J was born and therefore have no time in the classroom.
So, what do I want to be when I grow up?
