When I turned 21 I remember crying thinking I don’t want to grown up I don’t want to be an adult and go out in the big wide world as people used to call it and to be honest they probably still do. You wonder what life is going to be like ahead of you and what really did the future hold. At this point I had no idea what I wanted to do in life, I’d left school and had no intention to go to University either.
I’ve always been a worrier, nothing changed that unfortunately and when I became a Mum I started to stop worrying about myself and began to just worry about the little life that I had brought into this big scary world. I discovered I finally knew what I wanted to be…. a Mother!
They say that becoming a parent is a learning curve about the strengths you didn’t know you have and also the fears you didn’t know existed. We’ve faced many changes along the way, making friends, losing friends, starting nursery and then big school.
AHHH big school, the shoe was definitely on the other foot when it came to school, I remember as a child I was always crying about not wanting to go to school and to this day can picture myself running after my Dad as he’d left the playground telling him I didn’t want to stay and wanted to go home. Now I was doing this with my daughter, facing it as a parent watching her get upset and realising my life had come full circle. We are two peas in a pod, we hate CHANGE!
