It's all in the job...

Waking up feeling old and pathetic because you’ve been squished between two babies all night.

Getting gooey chocolaty kisses because the baby snuck into the Easter candy.

Telling the same kid no 100 times only to be told they are tired of hearing that word, in your head your thinking then stop asking the same question.

Getting tackled with hugs from the same kid later in the day.

Contemplating the 18th birthday of your first born.

Contemplating the 18th birthday of your first born.

Hearing your children fighting and saying horrible things to each other first thing in the morning.

Watching them play soon after like nothing ever happened.

Cleaning up a counter you could have sworn you had just cleaned a few minutes before, realizing the kids were eating AGAIN!

Having one kid lead the other ones into a cleaning spree without being asked.

Being so frustrated with the things going on around you that you ask "where’s the baby?" and hearing the three people in the room with you say "in your lap".

Being able to laugh at yourself when you do something so ridiculous as to loose track of the baby sitting on your lap.

Someone once said if we were to see the job of mom listed and described in the newspaper no one would ever apply.

Too bad though because along with all the frustrations, worries, tears, fears, fights and hurts the job comes with benefits beyond measure.

It’s all in the job of being a mom... I wouldn’t trade it for any other job in the world.
