This Parenting Job

I'm going to come out and say it - This parenting thing is hard work. There are no days off. There is not a moment when I am not Mom. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

I'm not saying that being a dad isn't difficult. It probably is, but I know that every other mom out there is agreeing with me right now.



Who do they want when they don't feel well? Mom
Who do they want when they fall down and get hurt? Mom
Who do they want when someone hurts their feelings? Mom
Who do they want when they wake up from a bad dream? Mom

It is definitely a full-time job!

In spite of all of this, I wouldn't trade my job for anything. The payback is definitely not monetary; as a stay at home mama, I don't make a dime. But there IS a payback.

LOVE!

The amount of love I get back from the small people in my life makes up for all of the hard work I have to put in each and every day.
