No chance of getting fired...

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.

  1. 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 stinks. I didn't read the fine print either !

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

  2. 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.

    New follower- feel free to come on over.

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

  3. You've forgot having to think for everyone else too!!!I'm just back from our travels to the UK & ireland to see the family, the best time to get a weeshy bit of time off is being with the grandparents, don't relax too much thou or they might feed your 14 month old black forest gateux as a "treat" LOL

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
