I often wonder why I put up with this crap.
Good lord, its almost like I have to mother some of these employees and they are not nearly as cool as my own kids.
Aah my own kids. They are growing and maturing and turning into these wonderfully amazing little people.
The twins are just 10 days shy of four and are just the funniest, brightest,most articulate children.
Take for example our drive home yesterday :
As we passed a park in which a bird was sitting
B: Mommy I want you to stop the car so I can go get that bird
Me: No, honey , I can't stop the car besides what would you do with that bird if you were to "get" him ?
B:Put him in a cage
J: No, that might hurt him and if he gets hurt he'll have to go to the vet , vet- veterinarian
I was quite impressed by my daughters knowledge.
And as the kids begin to talk about the bird and make each other laugh about different things I heard J say. "Oh B you're so funny, you fill me with suprises".
I had to laugh because when you hear that kind of thing come from a four year old what else can you do ?
Later,as we passed a Dennys Restaurant B said "There's Dennys."
I was suprised that he knew what it was as its not somewhere we go much at all .
I asked how he knew that.
"I just know, Mommy" he said
" You're not able to read yet," I said good naturedly teasing him "How do you know?"
"Yes, I can" and then he paused " "No, I'm just kidding mommy. I'm making a joke"
I was quite impressed by his wit and the fact that he knew he was being witty.
My children amaze me daily and as for all the moments that they've tested my patience what can I say? I am truly blessed because the moments spent soaking in their innocence ,their wit and their pure love outweigh all of that by far.
I guess I now know why I put up with the crap here at work.
Because my children deserve nothing less than the universe and I'm going to give it to them. So if I have to take a little crap every now and then to be able to help provide for my family dammit thats what I'll do.
