I got this via. a email from my SIL!! There were five but I am going to pick just two that I think apply to the SahP (stay at home parent).
A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had anaccident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said, “Father, remember Psalm 129?” The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.The nun once again said, “Father, remember Psalm 129?”
The priest apologized “Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.”Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm
129.It said, “Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.”
Moral of the story:
If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.
I try to look at this sahp (stay at home parent) gig as a comprehensive undertaking that is never-ending. So I choose the role I feel like taking up in that certain moment and go with it. The nature of parenting is such–Moshie will always be my baby, even at 40. The whole Slacker Mom thing I think is a response to the never-ending task/ obsession with perfection. Really show me who isn’t a slacker mom in some way. This is how I inform myself of my job. In response to that this is my opportunity to enjoy my child while she is a baby. For me that doesn’t mean slaving away to get all the laundry done and make the kitchen look perfect everyday. I once told someone I don’t get this “dating thing” and she said matter of factly dating is what you make of it. So is Motherhood.
