This is my Facebook status from earlier this evening, when I arrived home with two frazzled Reds in tow, the making of supper a daunting task before me and another run in my stupid stockings:
Seriously now, this post is officially a shout-out to all you working parents out there, including a belated one to my own, who, though long-retired, still put in full days being awesome.
AMAZING, you are. INSPIRING, you are. STRONG, you are. MY HEROS, you are.
I don't know how you do it and still look as good as you do. Me, I straggle home at day's end looking like something the cat tossed aside in disgust and feeling worse.
In a good way, I suppose, but still.
Carry on being awesome, all. I'm just gonna put my head down here, for just a min.....
