Tonight I’m going to tackle question #6 – If you could have three wishes, what would you wish for?
(Again, you can find the original 30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me post HERE!)
- My first wish would be for our family to be completely debt free (i.e. student loans, car loan, mortgage… etc.) so that we could take our growing family on more adventures and live a slightly less stressful life. Money does NOT create happiness, but it CAN cause stress… and trust me it really does. Here’s hoping that in the next 5-10 years we’ll have a big chunk of this stuff paid off!
- My second wish would be for my beautiful children to grow up happy and content, that somehow I manage to pull off giving them a childhood full of amazing memories without spoiling and overloading them with STUFF, but with experiences and love. That’s my greatest desire for them… to just be truly happy.
- My third wish would be for my children to have the opportunity to meet their Great Papaw Frank and Great Granny Lillian… I’m incredibly emotional these days (thank you pregnancy hormones), and I’ve been thinking about my paternal grandparents a LOT. My Papaw Frank passed away a year before my wedding and Granny Lillian passed away almost exactly a year before Boogie was born. Neither got to meet our precious babies… but I know they would have been overjoyed to have met them.
