Passionate Mama

I've always been a passionate person.

As a tween & teen this passion manifested itself in the slamming of doors when things didn't go my way, or the throwing of random objects at those who dared to wake me.

As a mom, my passion is parenting.

Not just parenting but how I choose to parent.

I find myself pouring over blogs and other various child-related websites (sometimes in the wee hours of the morning).  I will spend months (literally months) researching the next big thing in child-related products.

As I've mentioned a time or (eleventy-billion) I've become quite involved in my local LLL group - these women are freaking awesome (for realz)!  Several of them I knew before but never as more than acquaintances.   It's funny what a few years, some babies and a mortgage can do to you (we definitely have a lot more in common now), and a mutual (passion?) interest.

With my back-to-work-date around the proverbial corner, I've been pondering what life would be like if we were independently wealthy... I crave companionship, adult conversation and being useful (I realize that parenting my boys is the most useful thing I can do but there are days where I feel like I'm losing myself in Cheerios and dirty bums)... these things I love about work... but if I didn't have to work (like really, did.not.have.to.work - like "Housewives of [insert location]") I don't think I would.  The more I think about it, the more I believe I'd cultivate this new-found passion

I can only see my participation with this organization growing... I love the friendships that have blossomed through this group!  We are such a freaking hoot (this is my completely biased opinion). 

What are you passionate about?
If money was no object - how would you go about cultivating your passion(s)?
