A bit of trivia about me; I retired at the ripe old age of 23. At least, that's what I tell people.
In fact, I had just moved from Canada to the U.S. and did not have permission to work. It was interesting, being a snowbird (okay, so I don't meet the TRUE definition of a snowbird... call it poetic license) at such a young age. Children were not yet on our radar and I had a lot of free time on my hands. Besides volunteering, I spent a lot of time thinking about what job I'd like to do if the #&$%-ing government would just let me work.
Now that I am a Mom, I can imagine no other job that I would like. Am I perfect at it? Nope. Not even close. I yell. I curse (under my breath, of course). I make Elise go back to bed if the number 7 isn't the first number on her alarm clock. I don't make lunches in the shape of zoo animals and think that Moms that do should have a pillow case shoved over their heads and then beaten with a sock full of quarters.
What? They are making the rest of us look bad!
Where was I going with this? Oh yes, being a Mom and why I love it. Watching my little babies grow up and bursting with pride at who they are becoming has to be at the top of my list.
A few weeks ago, I was asked to write a post for Sanofi's Diabetes Blog. I was honoured and thankful; writing my post help me to reflect just how lucky I am to be a Mom. And that is my true Mother's Day gift.
