The most important job in the world....

Parenting.

I would have so much more time in my life to accomplish, enjoy for myself, just be lazy if it wasn't for these 2:



But I don't want it ...ever... not even for a second. I love the work. I love the struggles... I love the getting up at 6:00 on the weekends to make basketball/soccer/volleyball/football games. I actually even love the arguments because we take everyone and at the end try to figure out how we can all be a little bit smarter of a  person from it. (even me :) )

 To me it's the American Dream. Busting our asses to make the very best possible outcome for any and all of the tasks or chores life throws at us or we get ourselves into. Even the chore of parenting.

I make jokes and cracks, sometimes whine about it... but in the long run Tam and I are pretty dedicated to always taking the time to do the best we can to finish the task of parenting and to do it in a way we will look back on and be proud of. So far... we couldn't possibly be more proud of those 2 dorks.

It's a huge, long term commitment to a job... but the payout is better than a winning powerball ticket.
