(Be sure to watch the Mother’s Day video from Kid President at the end of this post!)
This site may be named “Noah’s Dad,” but make no mistake about it, Noah’s mom keeps our house together! I could not ask for a more loving, kind, selfless wife and mommy to our son than my wife. I am so proud to live life with her. She makes my world 1,000,000 times more epic.
Thank you Abbie (aka Noah’s Mom) for all that you do. You are appreciated and loved more than I could ever tell you!
To All The Mom’s Out There: Thanks For Giving Up Your $138,095 A Year!
To all the mom’s out there, please know that what you do is important. I know there are days when you feel unappreciated and underpaid (by the way, did you know if mom’s were paid for the work they do the annual salary would be $138,095…! I wonder how many hugs that equates to?) but please don’t stop being a mom.
Your little ones need you. You are shaping the future of our world. You are literally changing the world one dirty diaper at a time. Please don’t let it bother you to much when your child doesn’t appreciate all you do for them right now, one day they will. Trust me. Keep fighting the good fight, and know that you are a hero in the truest sense!
A Mom’s Job Description
Speaking of a mom’s salary, I found this fun job description of a “mom.” So moms, the next time someone asks you what you do, simply forward this to them and smile.
POSITION: Mother, Mom, Mama
JOB DESCRIPTION: Long term, team players needed, for challenging permanent work in an often chaotic environment.
Candidates must possess excellent communication and organizational skills and be willing to work variable hours, which will include evenings and weekends and frequent 24 hour shifts on call.
Some overnight travel required, including trips to primitive camping sites on rainy weekends and endless sports tournaments in far away cities. Travel expenses not reimbursed. Extensive courier duties also required.
RESPONSIBILITIES: The rest of your life. Must be willing to be hated, at least temporarily, until someone needs $5.
Must be willing to bite tongue repeatedly. Also, must possess the physical stamina of a pack mule and be able to go from zero to 60 mph in three seconds flat in case, this time, the screams from the backyard are not someone just crying wolf.
Must be willing to face stimulating technical challenges, such as small gadget repair, mysteriously sluggish toilets and stuck zippers.
Must screen phone calls, maintain calendars and coordinate production of multiple homework projects.
Must have ability to plan and organize social gatherings for clients of all ages and mental outlooks.
Must be willing to be indispensable one minute, an embarrassment the next.
Must handle assembly and product safety testing of a half million cheap, plastic toys, and battery operated devices.
Must always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst.
Must assume final, complete accountability for the quality of the end product.
Responsibilities also include floor maintenance and janitorial work throughout the facility.
POSSIBILITY FOR ADVANCEMENT & PROMOTION: Virtually 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 and free hugs for life if you play your cards right.
