Just feeling like blogging. I am 33 years old and for some reason am feeling like I'm getting old. My kids are now 10 and 6 and that makes me feel old. I don't have little toddlers anymore, they're big kids. I feel like it's downhill from here. I know that it's not but am just feeling that way recently. I guess I'm kind of at a crossroads in my life. I am now enrolled in college and am working on finishing my degree. I'm interested in nutrition so I'm deciding on becoming a registered dietician. I keep having doubts about if it's the right thing to do. Before I became a stay-at-home mom I was in accounting. It's hard to know if switching careers is right. I just know that when I was doing accounting I wasn't passionate about it. My Dad is a pastor and my Mom is a counselor at an elementary school. I want a career where I help people. I guess it's in my blood. I love giving advice and listening to people's problems/issues and trying to be there for them. Throughout my life people have always confided in me. I think I'm approachable. I don't know if I will love being a registered dietician but something is telling me to go for it. Back to my kids. Now that my kids are getting older, it's making me miss when they were younger. They used to be more dependent on me, want lots of kisses and hugs, and were "my babies". Time is going way too fast, I just want to slow it down. It makes me sad to think that they're growing up. I am wondering if I should have another baby. I don't know the right answer and have been contemplating this for awhile. There is never a right time to have a baby. It's just that now I'm back in school and if I had a baby it would be like I was starting all over again. Plus I don't know how that would be, having two older children and a baby. Just don't know what to do. I would like to know if anyone else feels like this or get some advice from other people and their situations. Thanks for any help.
