If you are a working mum, you can separate work days from rest days and typically you could have rest from work and probably ignore work emails during the weekend. However, there's no running away from your boss at home.
Your baby doesn't care if it's the weekday or weekend, if it's night or day; or whether you have only slept 4 hours the night before. He's the most demanding boss in the world. There are no employment benefits provided except for the giggles, coos and cuddles which prove to be very effective in lifting your moods despite your occasional grudges. Sadly, as hard as you work round the clock, your bank account doesn't grow even as your boss grows ever so healthily and beautifully. Yet it's a job that you willingly bear even without the monetary rewards because job satisfaction is completely intangible.
This boss cries, screams and wails, and expects you to clear up all his puke and poop. Oh, the nerve! Yet you would get down on all fours to clean up the mess as the humble subordinate because you know very well that your boss is absolutely incapable of doing it on his own. You are at his beck and call and drops everything in your hands to run to him at his slightest whimper in the middle of a nap. Yet you never tire of carrying him in your arms, rocking him to sleep and singing lullabies.
Continual professional development includes building up your library of nursery rhymes so your boss will always be entertained without you singing a song more than twice. It also involves you learning about the latest popular cartoon and PinkFong song. Being professional also means showing your brightest smile at your boss despite feeling totally crappy.
So yea, you are working for THE most demanding boss in the world and you have THE most challenging job! Thankfully, love makes the world go round and it's the currency that sustains you even in the poverty of slavery under your baby boss.
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. - Lamentations 3:22-23
