Growing Up - SSS- May

Your “Secret Subject” is:
When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up? Did it come true?

It has been a while but I have talked about this before, on more than one occasion. I do believe it was on my other blog Spatulas On Parade.
More than once I think. Here and here. Similar post HERE

So since I feel I've covered this subject, sorry Rena, I'm going to do a new take on it. My kids dreams. My oldest had no plans. None. Nothing. But a few years after graduation he decided he wanted to be a law enforcement officer. He began college and after his second semester his then gf was having a baby and he needed to work "now" so he quit. He has done all sorts of jobs since then but recently he became a fire fighter and is loving it. He has a real passion and drive to be the best. I'm proud of him, and 32 is not too late.
My middle son dreamed of being a musician. He was with a band, played all the local pubs, and even was signed, toured and then they quit. The road is not glamorous or fun, it's hard and they decided it wasn't worth it to them. He recently started a new job and is dong really well.
My youngest was going to UTI to become a NASCAR mechanic and two weeks before time to start he told us he changed his mind and was joining the military. It has been 7 years and he loves it. Currently he is an instructor at his tech school. He loves it and is advancing quickly.
I'm proud of them all. They are all different and have taken tangled twisted roads to get where they are but they are all doing well, have not quit and have found their careers, at least for now.

Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week 9 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts. 
Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts.  Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:

  1. Love that you took this opportunity to tell us about the boys. You have a lot to be proud of.

  2. I love this a lot better! I didn't know you had three kids so it was nice to find out a little more about you & your boys!

  3. I find it super interesting to see young people's journey. My Mom was a Kindergarten teacher, and she liked to "predict" what her little students were going to do, based on their personality and skills. Often she was spot-on. If she wasn't, those kids would later find their calling, if there is such a thing as a calling.

  4. Thank you for sharing about your kids

  5. So wonderful that they each found out in their own ways. They needed to learn who they are and what they enjoy.
