I can honestly say there are some days I never stop laughing and other days I cry until the tears dry up. Being a parent is the hardest job I have ever done.
To prove my point here is a list of jobs I have done since I was 12 years old
-Prep Cook for Pizza Company
-Cashier; Music store, clothing store, used bookstore.
-Cleaning Lady for college apartments (Gross)
-HR hiring people for a shady company
-Security for Fortune 500 company
-Night Security Guard for Telecommunications company.
-Handed a PR job at 19 to help open a company because the person quite. I worked with Manpower and hired and hired learning on the job
Those are the only ones that come to the top of my mind. I know I have had more because my parents wanted me to know every field of work and understand hard.
I know hard work. I know what it means to watch someone cry because they lost of didn't' get the job. I have felt heartache losing a job or saying good bye to friends.
I have never felt the same amount of Joy I find being a mom. My son telling me in his bath that his penis is hidden in a cave of wonder at age 3. My daughter telling me Thunder is the Might Thor throwing down his hammer at age 8. My son lying to be about homework or grades he received. Having to be the one who make rules and I hate and having to keep them. When you see the hurt in their eyes.
Its is the hardest job and yet the most amazing gift I have been given. I am blessed to raise my little ones at home. I cry, I laugh and I have learned I need to laugh more as a mom.
