Today Sofia said to me, “there are lots of things I want to be when I grow up but am just going to be a mummy.” I had to explain to her that you can be other things in life AND be a mummy too. I told her I worked at a job until she was born and that I don’t work now because she and Alex are still so little that I want to stay with them until they are older.
She sounded surprised that it is possible to have a job and be a mummy. It got me thinking about what I would like to do in the next stage of my life. Back to school? Job? I don’t really know what I want to do “when I grow up”. And when. I was sort of hoping to stay with Alex until he is two, but then again, I could work or study part-time.
The wheels are turning.
