When I was young...

I remember when I was younger I would always tell my mother when I have a baby I want him to call me by my name...I dont want him to call me mama I can't imagine!
So I would tell my mom I don't care what I'm going to have him call me Sarah!
Ofcourse the years have come and gone and here I am a mother and my son is still learning how to talk...
He calls me Mama sometimes.
I LOVE IT!
My mother was teaching him Sarah...so he would say DAYAA.
This morning I was praying and the room was dark cause I wanted to go back to sleep. AbdulRahman woke up and wanted to get out of bed so what does he say...
Dayaaa
I have to admit I like Mama better..Like my mother told me when I was younger, when you hear the word Mama there is a certain feeling you get like an accomplishment or a sense of worth. I love it!
Another thing I used to say when I was younger in school was. "I never want to become a teacher."
Because my mother is a teacher people used to assume I'd be a teacher when I grow up. I would say NO WAY I don't want a life stuck in a classroom waking up so early in the morning and going from class to class all day long.
Now I'm all grown up and you guessed it! I want more than anything to become a teacher!
Again one of the most gratifying jobs is to teach to see progress in your student/s.
I teach a friend of mine English and just the change in pronouncing the TH was amazing for me.
Anyhow I'll try to keep track of the "nevers" I told my mother when I was younger and how they have changed!

From 13 Dec. and you didn't tell me. It's very nice and elegant.

I don't agree about teaching, you are a writer

You know Sarah I do feel what you say very much. I've been an aunt since I was 13. I insisted that my nieces call me Aunt not call me by my name. I really wanted to enjoy the feeling that I'm an Aunt. No body ever believed me that it is worthy to hear your nieces calling you aunt.
What if I'm called Mum. I'm sure it will be amazing.

God bless your kids,
