Who am I

Sat here with a glass of wine after a weekend of awesomeness but also of missing my kids and hubby like mad.

I am looking around my castle (well my slightly smaller than a castle of a house) and the toys taking over and thinking who am I?

Well firstly before anything else I am a mum and wife, that is what I want to be and I love it. But my life plan over the past few years has been changed slightly through outside forces, the stay at home mum in me is not going to happen (yet anyway). So I have spent a couple of months being ensued by an identity crisis; how can I be a mum and wife if I work full time? How can I work, when the job isn’t what I want to do? Who am i?

This weekend has really clarified for me who I am. Back in June I qualified as a baby signing practitioner, but I haven’t done much with it as I wasn’t sure how I could be mum, wife, full time worker, blogger, run a smal business and be a baby signing teacher!

This weekend I went to help at another Baby Signing Mummy course, and then I went to a mumpreneur conference. Manic? Yes! Missed my family to the point of tears? Yes! But worth it? Completely.

You see I can be a mum, wife and more. I can change my life plan to what suits my family best, so for now I am mum, wife, full time worker and blogger, I help on a small business but the reins are being past to my lovely supportive hubby. I can also be a Baby Signing Teacher, it will take planning, time, hard work and lots of support, but I will get there, well i am there, just need to finalise the plan.

    What a lovely career choice – good luck in your future plans.

    You can do it all (slowly but surely)

    Glad you enjoyed the conference and your Baby signing class. Just continue to have self belief and you will make it happen. I finally got there after attending the conference last year where I was fortunate enough to win an award. Self belief was oh so important – you will make it happen and I wish you lots of fun and enjoyment on that journey.

    You can do it!! It’s hard but one thing I’ve learned from the last few years of trying working, not working etc. no answer is perfect – you just need to find the one that manages to balance the best for you and the family.

    Lots and lots of luck with it x
