I can only pick one thing?  ;)  Does it have to be parenting related?  I would have one of those houses near us that is close to the city, close to friends and neighbors, but still have enough land to have horses and stuff.  There's a street near us that has houses on acreage and they have barns and horses and yet, it's still close to nightlife and shopping and everything.  It would be like the best of both worlds.  OR... I would have a vacation home somewhere like Italy and then the money to fly there regularly. 

Or I'd have a housekeeper to clean the house we have because I HATE housework.  Or a personal shopper who told me exactly what would look good on me AND be comfortable to wear.  Or I'd be practical and say I'd just take a college fund for the three kids, already full up so college would be paid for and I wouldn't be stressing about how we're going to pay for college. 

My dreams look so practical!  Maybe I'd really just like a unicorn that poops Skittles. 


Married, college student, part time work from home mom to DS (12), DD1 (10) and DD2 (9) and a giant dopey newfoundland, a crazy border collie mix, 3 black cats and two rats.

Three bedroom penthouse in the upper west side of Manhattan overlooking central park and the museum of natural history. I'd love to raise city kids but it is sooo expensive.

I was going to say a bigger house cause we are bursting at the seams, but if I would stay right where I am if my daughter could be healed of her multiple food intolerances and chronic eczema.

Professional organizer to help us. I think we've got a hoarding thing going on. I priced them and the ones who work with people like us with the kind of training I think we would want were a LOT! 

I'd bring them back a few times a year to keep us on track.

Either:

 

A restored classic wooden sailboat to live aboard

 

                   or

 

A bus remodeled into an RV to live in

 

                 and

 

A dependable, portable source of income so I can travel in my home.
 


Rhu - mother,grandmother,daughter,sister,friend-foster,adoptive,and biological;not necessarily in that order. Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way (Jimmy Buffet)
