This Is......what I want to be when I grow up.

I had to think about this for a little while but not too long - I really believe I am living the life I always hoped for.
It was always my dream to be a mum. I can remember way back when I was 5 years old playing in houses where there were little babies and cuddling them and trying to look after them.

I trained as a child care worker then went on to become an Early Childhood worker continuing on with the looking after kids theme- my favourite age to work with would be 6months - 2year olds and spent much of my working life making a profession caring for many little mites - most of whom still touch my heart and it scares me to think some of these would be in their early twenties now.

I must say that I am very much loving my 3 year old and have found her great nature and wonderful personality to be easy to hang with - my 8 year old is a little more challenging and I need to sometimes stop and remember she is still little and in need of guidance and boundaries without negativity (Bronte can be extremely sensitive and this can prove patience pushing).

Sometimes the boundary between motherhood and profession blur and I think I should be more than a mum/carer, I have a desire to be a business woman/fashion designer/craft extraordinaire but mentally that all seems too far away/too hard/not me - I feel like my mind is a blur of a little bit of this and a little bit of that - but when I truly look at everything I love it comes down to anything child focused of quality -My girls really enable me to be immersed in my love - KIDS.

Thanks to bugandpop for choosing this weeks theme a great one to reflect on.

What do you want to be when you grow up - are you/have you fulfilled your dreams?

It's so nice to hear from a Mum who loves being a Mum! Children are such an amazing blessing and the opportunity to stay home with them guiding them and watching them grow is one I wouldn't trade for all the careers in the world.
