I didn't get an interview;
I was hired, late at night in a hospital room.
My bosses are small;
They hang off my shirt tails.
Wiping noses, tears, and bums
Are some of my duties.
Laundry and dishes are never ending.
I respond to mom, mommy and mama.
The hours are long and never-ending.
It's not unusual to have a late night call by one of my bosses.
Instead of my heart being in my chest;
It is now walking around in my children.
I cry easier, am weary and tired at times;
But the joy they bring is worth every moment.
The salary sucks, but the cuddles and hugs
are all the reward I need.
I am a teacher, a cook, a taxi driver, a nurse, a house cleaner,
a referee, an evangelist, a social coordinator.
I am a MOM.
Happy Mother's Day to all the other mom's that have the same job as me and who love it as much as I do.
