There's no better job than this mommy job. Some days are long and restless, some days try my patience and test my sanity, some days I daydream about putting on fancy clothes and driving away to a fancy office where nobody smears boogers on my pants and I don't say things like "no, no, kitties don't belong in the dishwasher".
But most days? I couldn't imagine doing anything other than this, couldn't imagine missing a silly game of 'where's your foot' for anything in the world. There's nothing that could possibly bring me more joy than these little perks of the job- chubby little feet and pure happy laughs.
I feel so fortunate. Unshowered, unfancy, underpaid .... but oh, so fortunate to do this job.
