Heads or Tails - My Job

Today's theme is:

TAILS - Tell about your job (Or one you've had)

I'm a little late getting my Heads or Tails up, but it is still Tuesday, right? It's just that today feels like it should be Monday, and I'm doing all the normal Monday things. Yes, yesterday was a holiday. A lot of people had the day off - not Beth. She had to work 8 hours. That's what happens when you work retail. Been there. Done that. I worked at Kohl's from the time Jeffrey and I got married until Cory was about a year old.

So, that was one of my jobs, but since then my main job has been MOM. Stay home, take care of the kids, cook the meals, clean the house, do the laundry. The truth of the matter is that someone has to do it. I'm just lucky enough to be able to do all that without also having to hold down a full-time (or even part-time) job outside the home. When the kids were little, we talked about my working outside the home, but we came to the conclusion that, with the cost of daycare and with what I would make doing what I was doing, I really wouldn't be making any money. So, it was better for me to stay home with the kids. Since then, I've been doing just that - cooking, cleaning, shopping, finances, helping with homework, volunteering at school, driving kids here, driving kids there.

It's not the kind of job that pays in dollars and cents, but it's a job that pays in all kinds of other ways.

  1. I agree - it may not pay in dollars and sense, but it's one of the most important jobs that I know I've ever had. :) Great post!

  2. Money isn't everything and being a mum is so important, varied, fun, difficult, full of responsibilities and rewards. Sounds like the perfect job.

  3. Being a mom is the greatest job in the world! :o)

  4. I saw a lot of posts about the job of being a mom. (We moms all know just how hard a job it is to do and to do well.) You simply cannot beat the fringe benefits though. :)


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
