I'm proud to have the world's toughest job!

It's almost 5am but I still don't want to sleep yet as I miss blogging and blog-hopping soooo much! I saw this video in Mommy Shorts (if you don't read her, I suggest you to 'cause she's the awesomest!) and it welled my eyes while watching it. It's just so timely that I've been having that urge to go back to the corporate arena because I want to help my husband in our finances, especially now that we're planning to buy a house. Being at home is great than being stuck in traffic, being with the kid 24/7 keeps me sane than having to call home from work almost every freaking hour; but being those means not being of any help with regard to the financial matters of the family. That makes me feel useless at times but after watching this video, I kinda felt like it pat my shoulder for having the world's toughest job. Ever. 

Sniff-sniff... Makes me miss Mama, too. Cheers to us, my fellow hardworking mommas! ♥
