When I Grow up I Want to be...

As with most children, what I wanted to be when I grew up changed a few times when I was younger.

I wanted to be a vet.

Then I found out about the seven years of studying. I was told stories of having to put down animals that couldn't be saved. So I decided that veterinary medicine wasn't for me.

I wanted to be a singer.

Then I found out that not everyone made it that tried. It was pointed out to me that I would also be permanently in the public eye if I did make it. So that wasn't for me either.

There are two things that always remained constant throughout the years though.

Firstly, I wanted to be a wife.

I met my first goal on Saturday 14th May 2011 at 20 years of age. I married the love of my life in a beautiful ceremony surround by the love of family and friends.

Secondly, I wanted to be a mother.

We had our first daughter on 25th February 2014, and our second daughter on 15th December 2016 (I am also mummy to two angels). So I have met my second goal.

Now that my two main goals in life are complete, I do not have much that I wish for. All I try to do now is be the best wife I can be; raise happy, healthy, and loved children; and keep some semblance of an orderly home and life. As much as you can with a tornado toddler running around anyway.

I love my life, and I would not change it for the world.
