Don't just live in the world

Didn't see that one coming

June 18th, 2009 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Parenting | Personal

I never expected my life to go quite like this.

I never expected to be married, and having a baby. I never wanted to be a wife and a mother – and certainly not before I turned 30.

I always expected to be a career woman, to be living my life by myself, for myself, traveling the world, owning my own home.

Of course, I didn’t expect to not go right to university after high school, and I didn’t expect to start a career and fail at it and then go back to school. I certainly didn’t expect to meet a husband at university – and when I met Joe, I didn’t expect to marry him.

I really didn’t expect to have this life that I know a lot of women would have mapped out for themselves, but here I sit, with my life expanding before me.

And today I heard my baby’s heartbeat, and I cried.
