Good morning Everyone!
You might be a working parent if:
You ever took the day off from work just to clean your house.
You end up working third shift to complete a work project because you promised your child you would go on the zoo field trip with her.
The people at the drive-thru at McDonald’s have your order ready for you when you get there.
You consider Kraft Macaroni and Cheese to be one of the essential food groups.
Your blood pressure automatically skyrockets when you hear the words, “Mom, I forgot to tell you…..”
Menu planning for the week includes deciding which day you will be serving spaghetti, which day you will be serving fish sticks, which night is TV Dinner night and the other two week nights are reserved for take out.
You have ever wondered irritably why on earth schools can’t have their award ceremonies at 6 in the evening instead of 9 in the morning.
You look longingly at parents who do not work outside the home and think how nice their life must be. (Trust me, it’s just as hard for them as it is for us.)
You have ever chosen a doctor, dentist, vet or carpet cleaner based solely on the fact that he or she has evening hours.
The HazMat team is on speed dial for those rare days when you finally are able to clean out the refrigerator.
They also are on stand by when you clean out your car.
They have your pantry on their watch list, also.
You might be a working parent if you know with certainty that insanity is hereditary – you can get it from your kids!
Have a great day everyone!
