Thankful poem

24 Nov

I’m Thankful for…

Sticky face, crocodile tears, picky eating, comforting you from fears…

Whiny technicians, never-ending meetings, testy supervisors, grouchy morning greetings…

Temper tantrums, scraped knees, nap times, teaching you ABCs…

Forgone lunch hours, paperwork in piles, annoying emails, overflowing files…

Between home and work, I’ve got my hands full

But, I wouldn’t trade a second of it because being a mom and having a job makes me thankful!

    That’s good because it seems that’s your life right now! I’m thankful I’m a cat and dog mom and also have a good job.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Your life sounds a lot like mine! It’s a tough balance to strike, but I am certainly thankful for my job… and the time that I get with my little boy. Visiting from Mama Kat’s… come see me at sometime!

    I tell my husband all the time that I am SO thankful I even HAVE kids to complain about. I don’t want to imagine life without their scraped knees and picky eating!!
