Job Description: Mommy

Once upon a time I was a happy wife with a happy husband and I wanted a  happy family and so I went to the airport and held out my arms and the volunteer placed a black haired, almond-eyed angel in my arms.  I took that baby girl home and knew she was mine and I would love her the rest of my life...
We said, "People love our little almond-eyed baby!  Let's get another one!"  We went to the airport, held out our arms and they gave us a little boy who grinned from ear to ear and cooed whenever we looked at him.  We went home and I knew I would love that baby boy for the rest of my life.
We wanted one more little hand to hold, but this round we had no time to work two jobs for a year to pay for another almond-eyed, black haired baby.  So we had a home-made baby and I worked like the dickens to get that baby to come and join our family.  She was inside carving her initials on the walls and the words, "I am the only one who will ever be here!"  I pushed for three hours and then had a C-section and I took that baby home and with the four year old and the two year old, I will love that baby girl for the rest of my life.

And now, there is a Bonus Round and I'm a Grama with a little boy and a little girl and one more on the way that I take to my home whenever I can and will love those babies for the rest of my life.  This is the best job description I have ever had and it pays off in hugs and kisses on a regular basis!  And I AM living happily ever after.

  2. You have made me teary-eyed, you sweet thing! I have never been a fan of Mother's Day, but I do love all my children with a love that scares me sometimes. You have made me realize that I, too, am living happily ever after. Happy Mother's Day, Tammy!
