June Cleaver is the ultimate "SAHM". If June Cleaver had a Computer ~ would she spend the day on it? Would she have a Blog? What would she Blog about? Stain Removal? The Secret to a Perfect Pie Crust? Would she order take-out or Pizza for Dinner for her Family?
I try so hard to be like June Cleaver ~ but most days I'm probably more like Peg Bundy.
This morning the following "Job Description" was waiting for me in my "Inbox". I subscribe to The Brat Factor 365 Surprises and today it was about being a Mom (or Dad). If you're not familiar with The Brat Factor website ~ it's a Fabulous site. Hope this brings a smile ....... Enjoy
JOB DESCRIPTION :
POSSIBILITY FOR ADVANCEMENT & PROMOTION : None. Your job is to remain in the same position for years, without complaining, constantly retraining and updating your skills, so that those in your charge can ultimately surpass you.
PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE : None required unfortunately. On-the-job training offered on a continually exhausting basis.
WAGES AND COMPENSATION : Get this! You pay them! Offering frequent raises and bonuses. A balloon payment is due when they turn 18 because of the assumption that college will help them become financially independent. When you die, you give them whatever is left. The oddest thing about this reverse-salary scheme is that you actually enjoy it and wish you could only do more.
BENEFITS : While no health or dental insurance, no pension, no tuition reimbursement, no paid holidays and no stock options are offered; this job supplies limitless opportunities for personal growth, unconditional love,and free hugs and kisses for life if you play your cards right.
PARENTS in appreciation for everything you do on a daily basis, please know that you are appreciated for the fabulous job you do.
** THERE IS NO RETIREMENT -- EVER!!!
