No, not me. I was perhaps tempted at some point when I was a teenager being brain-washed at my Christian secondary school by our School Principal. She was always on the lookout for future teaching generations of "Old PL Girls" during school assemblies, but the spell was broken the minute I graduated and they gave me books instead of money when I topped the whole school in 3 subjects. At the moment a number of my former classmates and schoolmates (most were teachers' pets turned teachers) are actually holding very important positions in my alma mater and I am relieved that I am not with them - at all.
But I had this interesting (for me) conversation with Baby Girl a few evenings ago.
I arrived in the bathroom to find shit all over the toilet bowl. Baby Girl was behind me. By process of elimination, you can figure that one of the boys was responsible. I know, I'm one of those long-suffering mums.
I started to clean the WC, cursing and swearing under my breath all the time.
BG : That's why I do not want to be a mummy! You have to clean caca, yucks!
Me : Tell me about it, between your backsides and the toilets, I am up to here in shit.
BG : I do not want to be a mummy, it hurts in the wee-wee when the baby comes out.
Me : You wouldn't be here if I was thinking like that.
BG : I am going to be a teacher. Teachers do not have to clean caca, but get to scream at children and give alot of homework...
I was just thinking that most of the teachers at her school do not have kids. They probably knew about the caca business.
