Parents Job Description!

Just had to share this some of you have probably seen it already, but how true it is. It made me laugh but maybe that's because its kind of a perfect definition!
Parent Job Description

Mom, Mommy, Mama, Ma
Dad, Daddy, Dada, Pa, Pop


Long term, team players needed, for challenging, permanent work in an often chaotic environment. Candidates must possess excellent communication and organizational skills and be willing to work variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends and frequent 24 hour shifts on call. Some overnight travel required, including trips to primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities! Travel expenses not reimbursed. Extensive courier duties also required.


The rest of your life. Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily, until someone needs $5. Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly. Also, must possess the physical stamina of a pack mule and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat in case, this time, the screams from the backyard are not someone just crying wolf. Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges, such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets and stuck zippers. Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and coordinate production of multiple homework projects. Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings for clients of all ages and mental outlooks. Must be willing to be indispensable one minute, and embarrassment the next. Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices. Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. Must assume final, complete accountability for the quality of the end product. Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and janitorial work throughout the facility.

None. Your job is to remain in the same position for years,without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills, so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you

None required unfortunately.
On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.

Get this! You pay them!
Offering frequent raises and bonuses.
When you die, you give them whatever is left. The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.

While no health or dental insurance, no pension, no tuition
reimbursement, no paid holidays and no stock options are offered; this
job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growthunconditionallove, and free hugs and kisses for life {if you play your cards right}

I needed this laugh for the week.
This week some of my parental responsibilities
have consisted of getting kicked all
night long by a certain someone that
cannot sleep in her own bed.
Getting yelled at repeatedly for
noodles and mac and cheese.
Cleaning up throw up.
Little girls demanding slurpees.
Hey I even got a black eye getting
head butted from a three year old....

But guess what?
I would not change a thing.
I feel so honored to be a mom.
I pray each day for patience, and
thank My Heavenly Father for my
beautiful girls!
I love being there mom!

It's not only children who grow. Parents do too. As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours. I can't tell my children to reach for the sun. All I can do is reach for it, myself.

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

I found this cute idea that I am going to do for my
girlies for Valentine's. Thought I would share the idea.
I will probably change some of the days.
So for 14 days you give them a treat.
Put the treats in a basket so they find
there surprise each morning!

There's fourteen days to go so I'll take each one to say,
I think you're very special and Happy Valentine's Day!!

I go bananas over you! 

You make me bubble over with joy.

Hoover Dam!

We decided to take a trip to the Hoover Dam, since
it's only about 30 minutes away.
Of coarse we pick the only day that it rains!
Obviously T was not to happy
about that!!! LOL!

It is remarkable seeing something so huge, yet Beautiful.
I guess they are building a new road. You can really see it in this picture.
That is one bridge I don't think I would want to cross.
Way to high for me!
I think this picture is so funny. Ana dancing out front,
and my niece has my nephew in a head lock!
Here is my girlies! I love them so much!
We had a good day. Although I think they had a better
time at McDonald's play land after.

Thanks for the great day!
