No experience necessary.
I was handed the job without any questions asked.
I've held the position longer than I have any other job.
Longer than my 4 1/2 year long waitressing job at the burger joint that paid my way through college.
Longer than my teaching career that lasted less than 3 years!
There are days when I dream of retiring! Days when I would love to do nothing more than walk in the door, hand in my resignation letter, and walk out the same door to a quieter, more peaceful place...
...Like a deserted island!
A deserted island free of organized sports.A deserted island free of class parties.
A deserted island free of science experiments.A deserted island free of three 5 year old monsters and an even BIGGER 3 year old monster!
But when I applied for this job a little over 5 years ago, I knew there would NEVER be a retirement offered.
No paid vacations.
And even worse, no days off!
But five years ago today, on September 25, 2003,at 1:24 pm, 1:25 pm, and 1:26 pm I gladly accepted the best job ever!
Though all of the monetary aspects of this job seem dismal, the emotional perks are out of this world.
I wouldn't trade my job as "Mom," to Angel, Isaac, Bella, or Annie for anything in this world.
Happy Birthday Angel, Isaac, & Bella!
I sure love you!
