The Only Full Time Job

I'm going to be bold enough to say that parenting is the only full time job. Especially single-parenting--you single parents amaze me. The reality of how clocked-in I constantly am to my job as a mother hit me today, as I lay limp on the couch, throat swollen, limbs achy and shivery, with my baby crying and needing me as much as always. Oh how I longed for a nap (which I eventually got--thank you, Em!). Em probably watched more TV today than in her whole life combined. I even went as far as putting on Barney. I know. I guess there's little point to this post, except a chance for me to whine, and a pause to appreciate parents everywhere, who are on-call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
