No chance of getting fired...

October 19, 2015
Today the complaints kept pouring in.

My eldest daughter couldn't find her favorite skinny jeans, and my husband was out of matching socks. My youngest son had to send out an APB for his lost shoe, and my youngest daughter slipped in a pool of lemonade,. I hadn't had time to mop it up yet.

Will I finally get fired?!


I looked at them hopefully: would this mean I'ld finally get fired, and be able to get some rest? But noooo, after filing their complaints they all looked at me expectantly to come up with a solution.

Sadly I could nót leave the premises covered in shame for poor performance.

So I sighed, got a mop, pulled the skinny jeans and socks out of the hamper, found the shoe that had gone awol, put a cast on my daughters leg and mopped the floor.

What a job: 24-hour shifts, seven days a week, and no chance of getting fired.

  4. And there's MORE bad news. You NEVER get to retire. That's right. The hubby may, you will never will. Because there will always be someone that depends on you to be their support system. I know, I know...it stinks. I didn't read the fine print either !

    New follower. And thanks for stopping by "the Hut"

  8. I know the feeling! Some days (most) I feel like I'm fielding zingers left and right! What is it about families that makes them think moms know everything and where to find it? Geez!

  11. Never was there a more aacurate saying ' a woman's work is never done', even in this modern day. Our family's seems to think we are the Oracle of Thebes.

  12. I am not looking forward to those days. Right now I just have to deal with the meltdowns of my 20 month old saying words I don't know what they mean and I can't figure out what she needs. I really hope I can figure out what 'pogos' means before too long.

    Have a Marvelous Monday!

  15. There is only one problem with that job- no pay. I don't have any children but I know my Mom would do it all over again without expecting a paycheck. Even as I am 4 years away from the big 3-0, my Mom's work is never done.

    Have a great week and try to get some R&R!

  26. Thanks for the laugh! I really needed that today after having a similar morning. I appreciate the reminder of the glamorous work that we do as mothers. It really is all worth it, right? Thank you also for sharing this with all of our Let's Get Real readers.

  27. I think we can all relate to this one. It's the only job in the world that is non-paying, unappreciated by others, relentless, and we get up everyday to do it all over again. Thanks for the laugh, and sharing on Sunday's Best linkup.
