I have gained a wide range of skills during my career as a parent, such as cooking more delicious meals, gardener, mending clothes, scrapbooking, frugal shopper, family psychologist, entertainment coordinator, laundry service director, etc. And those sound fabulous, right? Well, my little son decided that I am absolutely brilliant at yet one more skill--
So, not to be gross or anything, but my five year-old asked me to wipe him after going to the restroom and let me know that I have skills he doesn't. When I explained to him that he is going into kindergarten, he is big, and he needs to build his skills in that area, he told me, "But mom, you are a professional. I use WAY more toilet paper than you. AND it takes me even longer than [big brother] to wipe!"
Where does "Professional bottom wiper" fit on a resume? Or would that go on my teaching vita?
One thing I should be grateful for is the boy appreciates what I do. Either that or he has learned that compliments go a long way...
This goes right along with the post from yesterday:
