I Would Love To Start A Family...As long as I can remember, I wanted to be a mother. I always thought babies and little kids were adorable. I enjoy playing with children, running with them, talking to them and hearing what they have to say. Most of my jobs have been in children's retail. People ask me how I can deal with kids all day long and I in turn tell them that kids are seldom the problem, it's the parents I am more apt to have a problem with.
I was an only child with no relatives in town. It was just me, my mom and my dad. It sucked. It was lonely. I was bullied as a kid and I never had anyone to stand up for me or younger sibling I could defend. Holidays were lonely. I always wanted to have a large family...or at least more than one.
I would love to wake up in married family life. I don't mind changing diapers, chasing after toddlers or making people breakfast. It's a challenge, but I've always felt like it was my calling.
I also feel like I have a duty to my paternal grandmother. None of her grand-children have ever had children and all of them, except me, are too old to start a family. She herself was an only child. If I don't start a family, her heritage will die with me.
I feel like being a mother would be the greatest, most important job in the world. I would give people the greatest gift, which would be life.
