Spinning off from the teen parents thread I decided to start this one.
Although I did train to be a nursery nurse before having children I would not say I had an actual career - I had my first child when I was 21 so only really worked for 3 years before he was born and although I have continued to work with other children as well as raise my own my main job has been being a mummy.
I think I will work once they are all at school but being a mummy will always be the thing that comes first - I have no desire to go and train to do something else or study for a degree or anything - I have ambitions I would like to fulfill but still want to be here everyday before they go to school and when they get home at the end of the day.
Do you think women should have a career, do you think it's important part of life in order to feel fulfilled or is being a mummy the most important thing - should your children always come first?
