My Day Job

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

So, I spend a lot of time on this blog talking about how cute Jack is, how crafty I can be, how cute Jack is...

And that's all well and good (great, in fact), but there's a lot more to the story.  I am a working mom.  And that, my friends, is a big job.  It's two big jobs.  And if your house is even close to clean and you cook things sometimes, it's three big jobs.  And if you count blogging, which I do, we're up to four.

Yesterday, this post from the hilarious and awesome Jill at Baby Rabies gave me pause.  If you're a mom, or know a mom, or love a mom, you should read it. 

Here's my favorite excerpt:

Moms, take off your armor. Smile kindly at one another. Offer grace and support. Know that every mom you meet, no matter how “perfect” she appears, is walking that same shaky tight rope right along with you. Take her hand, tell her it scares you, too. Tell her sometimes you fall. 
And so, a quick snapshot of what I do "the rest of the time," when I am not with Little Dude, my awesome husband, cleaning, cooking, blogging, or sitting on the couch watching Big Love.


#1:  Coffee.   Aka, fuel.
#2:  Work.  Aka, work.
#3:  Sparkling water.  Aka, hydration and my newest raging addiction.
#4:  A copy of the ABA journal flipped over that I've been using for a mouse pad for about six months.
#5:  Wonder Woman and the Virgin of Guadalupe.  Aka, my cheering section.

See this pic for proof that I love Scentsy, Michael Kors,
and inspirational running paraphernalia.

What am I getting at?  Nothing.  Other than that I love my life, all four jobs of it.  Thanks for sharing.

Hope you love all your jobs, too.  Because I know you have more than one.

  1. Heather - if you have not purchased a SodaStream, go out and get one now. It has upped my water consumption by about 800%, and you almost never run out of seltzer. And, it's cheaper per bottle. And and AND! Bubbles.
    Tired.
    Too many jobs.
    Maybe my problem is that Hulk is my cheering section. He's not very cheery.

  2. I love seeing a snapshot of this little (big) corner of your world! I recently moved into a new office at work and I have contemplated talking about it on my blog as I try to make it my new home away from home.

    Now I have to see what I can do about getting myself a cheering section...
