I have dreams, aspirations, a to-do list of sorts... And I have unknowns... One day I want to return to the work force, but I don't know in what capacity. I've never had a career, I chose to be a momma and stay at home with my children. I have never regretted that choice. As a stay-at-home-mom, there is a certain dream I have. It's nothing extravagant, though those dreams exist too, this is just something simple.
I dream of a day, where I get to sleep in a little later. Not to be woken up by children wanting breakfast or looking for their portable video gaming system. A morning, where I can wake up when I'm ready. I'm a morning person, but a little more sleep is always welcome. And then, go on with my day with children that listen and do everything I ask of them without argument. Children that listen the first time. I just need a day where the girls play nicely all day, forget petty arguments and give me a little peace. A day where Baby Jack takes a couple long naps and stays his happy little self. The laundry is done and put away. I get to all those things I've been meaning to get to or want to do. I get to play Fable III, or work on my blog or get lost in a book. Oh and I'm having a good hair day. All without interruption. I cook a wonderful meal that the girls eat with out bargaining or voicing their opinions of dislike. Jonas gets home at a resonable hour. The kids turn in early. Jonas and I get time to ourselves to cuddle on the couch and watch TV. And then, I get to sleep, without Baby Jack waking up until the next morning. A pleasant day, free of chaos; where everything that needs to be done is finished. A day with three happy compliant children.
I laugh as I write this. It sounds good, but I think I might believe there is something wrong with my girls if they didn't argue a little each day. If I did get my way all the time, I wouldn't appreciate the time I did have to relax or get lost in a book. I always appreciate a good hair day though. A little chaos is welcome, but some days it can be overwhelming. It's a simple dream, but it's also asking for a lot.
As for other dreams, I dream of vacationing in Europe one day. And Hawaii. I dream of building my dream house. I dream of retiring in San Diego with Jonas one day, where we can take long walks on the beach. Find a home on the beach and watch the sun set over the ocean. I dream of my children one day getting married and having children of their own.
Those are a few of my dreams. What do you dream about?
