10 Things I Love About My Job


Last week, Ten on Tuesday’s prompt was 10 Things I Don’t Like About My Job. Here was mine. Now, the counterpoint to that point.

1. “I love you, Mom.”

2. “You’re the best Mom, ever.”

3. Making the kids laugh, laugh, laugh.

4. Folding laundry fresh from the dryer.

5. Being able to go to all of the kids’ practices, rehearsals, games, recitals.

6. Volunteering in their classroom and at the school.

7. Knowing where the kids are and what they’re doing.

8. Having friends over all summer without having to go through extraordinary scheduling contortions.

9. Having the time to write and blog.

10. Not missing a thing.

I hope hope hope I get to do this job one day. Where is my Knight in Shining Armor to help make this happen? I swear, I'd take a Knight with Dull Armor right now. ;) Happy Tuesday!

#10 says it all. I work part-time so I don't have to miss much either. I get out of the house and they get there mother - win, win.

It doesn't get any better than that! I'm a SAHM, too, and wouldn't change it for the world!

Thanks for your comment on my "About Freakin' Time (#2)" post. After reading this one, I can imagine you doing your happy dance and the kids giving you the raised eyebrow...

I am lucky in my job that I get to work at home two days a week. Having a door to close (and occasionally lock) is critical, but it's also wonderful to be able to get over to the school when I can and be around when the kids come home and such. That's what life is all about.

A couple of months ago, I saw a client I hadn't seen for a number of months. Like more than a dozen people have in the recent past, she ...
