I might not be a mum

6 1 0

OPINION: As a little girl, I was always told that I'd make a good mother one day.

Probably because I'm the older sibling, and as all eldest children (and younger siblings) know, we are the second parent and thus the second boss of the house.

Sometimes I feel sorry for my brother and sister when I reflect on my bossing, nagging, telling off, and then I don't feel as bad when I remember that they didn't have to do that bossing, nagging and telling off.

So of course, with the expectation of children at the back of my mind, I strove on with life.

* Christchurch students striking for climate again
* Climate change bill's emissions target 20 years too late - school campaigner

I talked to my friends about their baby names, took up childminding as a part-time job and thoroughly enjoyed watching Offspring in my spare time.
