    I wanted to be a teacher and mummy of 4. I ended up a childcare director and mummy of 2 and have been told no more children due to my HELLP SYNDROME.
    But at least I have two wonderful kids.

    Not long ago I read 'Crime Scene' by aussie forensic scientist Esther McKay, it made me very glad I took a different path.
    My Dad was a police man in charge of forensics... He worked LONG hours and shift work. He wasn't home much and he saw some terrible things. Just not worth it :-(

    I didn't know. When I was five I wanted to be a doctor so I could "cut people." Wasn't I a normal child?
    Teenage years I didn't know. I didn't want to be a mum. I didn't feel I was made to do that.
    I'm a mum lol of three no less and feel maybe I was made to do this.

    I want to be an interior designer or something now.

    A vet in kindergarten/preschool, then I found out you had to put animals to sleep .

    An accountant in primary school, who the heck dreams of that, I'm a freak .

    An astrophysicist in high school.

    Finally got my degree in chemistry and work for the government in research.
