Dreaming


Tonight I'm dreaming.  I'm dreaming of what I would be if I weren't a teacher.  Have you ever thought about that?  Has anyone ever asked you that?  When I was in 8th grade, I wanted to be a paramedic.  I think I even wrote a poem about it for my poster about me.  I carried this dream all through high school, even up to the day I went and visited a college.  I don't know what changed my mind, but when asked what my major would be I said "Education" without even thinking. 

Buuuuuutttttt......if I lived in a world where money was not a worry.  Where I could choose whatever job my pretty little heart desired, I would choose to be a.......... Baby Rocker.  Babies are my thing.  I love, love, love babies.  I love their smell, their little cry (not at 3 am), their little toes and fingers. How they move and stretch.  I just love it all.  I love snuggling them, right up in my neck. hahaha  I'm lucky because right at the moment, we have a new baby in the family.  My sister had a baby about a month ago.  My baby fix..... fixed. :)  When I retire, I'm going to volunteer somewhere and just snuggle the heck out of some poor unsuspecting little babies. We will be giving each other just what we need, when we need it. :)  

What would you do if you didn't have the job you have?

From my Brown eyes to yours.....

  2. How funny, we were just talking at work being baby rockers~ it is the goal of one of the teachers who is retiring this year. I want to work in a flower shop- just play with pretty flowers every day, then go home only to come back to smell the roses again the next day.

  5. And babies need this close touch to thrive. How lovely. Now that I am retired (and being a teacher was the only thing I wanted to be), I am now pursuing writing and art.

  6. I would make sack lunches for people and put little personalized notes inside. I'd like to have an affordable, drive-through restaurant where people order lunches for the week and I make them and send them on their way with a tasty lunch and a note to make them smile! I love the baby rocking job!!!!

  7. Awesome! A baby rocker. I would be a reader for story times for sure! I love reading aloud. I've actually thought it would be fun to read for audio books...but apparently that's a big deal of a job!

  9. Your post has me thinking!

    I started to think librarian. Organizing books, recommending books, reading books to children...and on and on...sounds heavenly.

    Then I was thinking a coordinator for a place like the Princess Margaret Lodge where we stayed in Toronto while Jim was having radiation. You just gave me an idea for a slice!

  10. A travel writer, publishing flourishing books about all the places I can visit because the trip is paid for by the publisher. :) One can dream. Thanks for inspiring me to dream.

  11. A baby rocker! What an awesome job! I think you should sign my husband up as he adores babies! It was such fun to read about what other people would do. I'm still pondering...
