I'll admit it.
I usually look forward to spring break.
But not quite like this year.
It was a rather challenging week at work.
We'll just say it involved some body fluids,
and a few physical entanglements.
Ahh, yes, the life of a para.
Comes with the territory.
While I love my job,
I admittedly get a bit tired some days.
But I can never wait to go back for more.
It is equally, if not more interesting
being the parent of special needs (adult) children.
My daughter and I headed to the store
Friday after work.
The car is always a nice place
to chat about our days.
She was happily telling me about
all of the things she did at work that day.
The girl loves her job.
I'm so happy she does.
Back to our chat.
After listing off a long string of things she did at work,
she came to her final assignment.
As she was chattering away,
I almost lost control of the car
as I wasn't sure I was hearing her right
as she told me excitedly,
"And then I filled the condoms!"
WHOA! "What did you say?
You filled the condoms?"
Her ever so innocent response,
"Yea, you know,
the stuff you put on hot dogs
"Ohhhh....you mean you
filled the CONDIMENTS?"
Wow. That was scary.
But I love being her Mom!
I just never know what
my days will entail.
And I wouldn't have it
any other way.
