Penny Castle or how a stay at home mom count the pennies

Updated on November 25, 2011

My name is Penny Castle, at least that's the nickname I have given myself.

I am stay at home mom. I look after my two young children while I am figuring out what I want to do next in my life when they are groomed enough, prepared enough for life out there. Well that's an excuse, you see. It's not only for them; it's for me as well. The excuse is I get to spend the most wonderful laid back time and the most important time of my life. The only downside of this is, While I am nurturing the nest , I am very much counting the pennies. While I am building a castle with pennies, I am investing in a kingdom where I am the only queen. My children are the prince and princess and well, husband could well be the king.

Have you ever found yourself at a crossroad? Not knowing which way to go? well I feel more like I am at a round about. Can't stop and can't decide which exit to take. it's like you go with the flow with everyone and you don't want to be left behind ; you want to feel like you are still in the game. Know the feeling?

My kingdom is society itself...I am raising the next generation and it 's about time I do it with style. Society need women who invest in themselves, in the future offsping. Those kind of builders, the ones who build castle have taken the back sit, but they are stong and they truly know their worth.

It's tough; it's hard because, I am just counting pennies right now, but it's just for awhile.

I am Penny Castle; I am building a castle with just pennies. My job is simple. It has a figure salary you can't describe. I am in an investment program. with some wealth I do not gamble with . It's too easy to dismiss my job but I am too clever for this. I am not dressed smartly with high heels and heading to my office but hey who says I can't; it's time I show off my skills. lets play office ,shall we children? -if it helps - lol...... see I am just raising my kids, taking care of the most precious place in the world. Our kingdom.

I have the privilege to be there for them, for myself, building ressources for the future. Not many people can do this. Others HAVE to work. I don't. I chose this. I am building myself up. It will only be for a time.

Until I get my pay cheque and then we shall all talk business.

My name is Penny Castle, yes that's my name.
