AAM Scrapbooking Challenge_ Expectations

My question (prompt) for the All About Me challenge this month is . . . Did you live up to your expectations?

When we were kids we thought we had it all figured out . . . I will be a _____ and live ______ and have _____ kids and, and, and . . .

Did it happen? Were you way off base? This could be about lots of things or just one particular thing. The CT volunteers and I found this one to be a little multi-faceted and quite rewarding once we got into it. :O)

Here are a few pages to help get those creative juices started. (I have to say, the journaling usually takes the stage with the AAM pages, but these girls have wowed me with their page designs just as much as the journaling.) Please look for these pages in the gallery so that you can easily read their story.

Heather records her thoughts about her misconceptions about the “mom” profession, raising girls vs boys, and the joy of teaching.
