100 Things to be When You Grow Up by National Geographic Kids

100 Things to be When You Grow Up
by National Geographic Kids

If I had read 100 Things to be When You Grow Up I probably would have had an even tougher time making a career choice! From beekeeper to snake milker to pet food taster, there are so many more jobs to choose from than I could have ever imagined as a kid.

When I was a kid I wanted to be (in no particular order):

  • Carol Burnett
  • Forensic pathologist
  • singer
  • circus performer
  • actor
  • US President

Realistically, most of these jobs were unattainable for me, but it was certainly fun to daydream, right? That’s what so great about 100 things book: one woman, Shannon Walker, never imagined that as a young girl she could grow up to be an astronaut, but yep, that’ exactly what she became. It’s a dream come true for her and I’m sure many other people feel the same way about the jobs that they have. Especially the wacky and wild jobs noted in the book.  I mean, what IS a snake milker anyway?

I’m not telling.

You’ll hafta read the book for yourself.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Graduation, Photographers, and Cookies. A Memoir. Sorta.

You might not know this, but my youngest graduated from high school in June!!! YAY!!!

How can someone so small grow up to be a high school graduate? It seems like just yesterday she was throwing a tantrum in her sweet little church dress or bonking her brother on the head with her plastic guitar.

Because we’re readers, it seemed fitting to incorporate cookies into her party. Books, I mean we incorporated books into the party theme: She’s One Smart Cookie! That allowed me to go through her collection and lay out books that she’s enjoyed over the years.

Would you like to take a look?

I think the photos turned out beautiful! Having a photographer at the house captured memories that I’ll cherish forever. The photographer was Sheri Luckey of Moments by Sheri.  Contact her on Twitter, email ([email protected]) or phone ( 267-277-3407).

I got to have all of my fave things on one day: sweets, family, and books!
