job description

"There are few assignments in human experience that require the array of skills and wisdom needed by a mom in fulfilling her everyday duties. She must be a resident psychologist, physician, theologian, educator, nurse, chef, taxi driver, fire marshal, and occasional police officer. And if she succeeds in each of these responsibilities, she gets to do it all again tomorrow."

~Dr. James Dobson, Bringing Up Boys

(After I'd decided to post this, I realized that I've posted it before. But it's been more than two years, and frankly I feel it's work a re-post. As mothers, we have our hands full. But God gives us the grace we need, daily!)

Now, I'm not bringing up boys... but I needed that this morning! Thanks! :-)

And a promotion just means you get to be the mother of teens instead of toddlers.

Thanks for working at your job with all your heart, even when it's thankless and tiring. I'm sure I don't tell you enough that I'm proud of the work you do.

As someone more eloquent than I said, "you are changing the world, one little heartbeat at a time"
Or 4 in our case. ;)

Amen to what Jeff said! You do an awesome job with the children and we are so amazed by how you multi-task and not only run the household, but do the home-schooling. I think that you deserve not just a promotion, but a raise! Your boss ought to double your salary :)
