when I was really young I wanted to be a teacher because I loved school
when I was a bit older I wanted to be an occupational therapist – not because I knew what it was, but because it sounded pretty smart (still dont know what it is exactly!)
when I was older still I wanted to be a lawyer
when I was nearly finished school I decided to become a teacher, or an accountant, but settled on teaching as I could always go back
when I was doing my teaching degree I wanted to be anything BUT a teacher (result of a horrid PRAC)
now that I am older, I want to be a good mum for my kids, one they love, respect, talk with and to, and who becomes one of their closest friends when they reach adulthood – and yes, I think I can add this is as part of what I want to be when Im all growed up – because I dont feel all that old, nor all that growed up!
Congrats Tamala – I’ll Make sure the book gets to you asap!
So yes, I made it to 200 posts. For someone who has the attention span of a gnat, this is a big deal.
And I have loved it. Seven months of baring my soul, telling you things about my life that should probably have stayed private.
Sharing things that work for me and my family. Posting about things that I love to do, the things that I am passionate about.
If I had to re-write the “about me” page now, it would read so different as I have grown so much in these seven months. I am not the same person who wrote this, my first post and when I read it I cringe. What was I thinking. Only one person read it, and that was me logging in from another computer. Shame.
Back to the present…told you I had the attention span of a gnat!
To celebrate this auspicious occasion, I am giving away a book written by one of my favourite children’s book authors; Sam McBratney.
It’s the sequel to “Guess how much I love you” and it is a gorgeous book. McBratney weaves her literary magic with the continuing story of Little Nutbrown Hare and his question of what he will become when he grows up. The story makes its way through every season and on each page you are treated to the fabulous artwork of Anita Jeram.
To be in the running, leave a comment about what you wanted to be when you “growed” up and your email address. The most imaginative and creative will be the recipient of the book. Open to international readers.
I will choose the best answer on Christmas Eve, Monday 24th December at 4pm Perth (Western Australia) Standard Time.
