It's easy to dismiss the imaginative devotion that is parenting. I try to pause every once in awhile and give myself a little credit for the creative workout that is the average day with children.

  1. That is just a nice way to show, that being a mummy is just as good a job as any. Just way more creativity put into it.

  3. i love how you wrote that down, as sometimes i spend a whole day with my girls and feel i have done nothing. to put it this way means that i have done something, i had many functions and the girls know the difference.
    thanks

  4. SO true! trying to encourage my boys to play together is kinda like being an office manager. breaking up petty squabbles, squashing malicious rumors ( he did it on purpose!), time management for equipment, etc. and throw in all the normal stuff we do plus the hours of entertaining, you get a very special and draining day! Thanks for the reminder that I am more than a bad guy and a maid.
