My Career

It's 9:15 am, I've changed five diapers today. Have you?
Brandon often says that my job title should be "Professional Butt Wiper." Some days that feels all too true. Fortunately my job description also includes:
reading stories
singing
dancing
playing blocks
wrestling
kissing
hugging
watching kids shows
cooking
playing piggyback
coloring
snuggling
tickling
bathing
dressing
shopping
cleaning (not so fortunate)
library trips
walks
sledding
4-wheeling
boating

Overall, it's a pretty great job.

You're so positive. Although being a mom does include some crummy jobs, I think most of it is wonderful. I often ask Erik how he goes all day without being with Kire, cause I know I wouldn't be able to do it.

thanks for the reminder--i think i forget all of the positives all too often. Merry Christmas!!

It's almost like having twins. I had 3 in diapers for a time. I couldn't handle it so that didn't last too long. Laura is potty trained now...life seems blissful with only 2 to change every 2 or 3 hours. But I hear ya...5 diapers by 9 am is a standard around here too. Want to have a "Professional Butt Wiper" conference? I'm sure we could exchange tips of the trade. :)
