Is Parenting a Job?

Did you see this video that was going around on Mother’s Day?

I don’t know about you, but I never thought of parenting as a job… to me it’s a lifestyle.

You cannot separate motherhood from your life once you have children.  Of course every now and then a night off is in order, but you can’t exactly just pick up, leave and find new kids the same way you can find a new job.

That being said, I do get the point of the video and I think it’s an important one… moms are amazing people who do more than anyone else can even imagine.

We all have moments where we doubt our parenting abilities, but I think that’s normal and even part of what makes us better moms.  We recognize our weak points and continuously work on them until it’s time to work on another trait.

So to all the moms out there, take a minute to yourself and realize how amazing you are.

Until next time,

  • I loved this video! As the interviewer was describing the job description, it did seem very hard and demanding…and it really is! But Hashem gives us the strength and stamina to be able to do what we do!
