There are so many things I have become as a mother; an entertainer, dancer and singer; a story teller; a peace-keeper and master negotiator; a cook (though I was always that) and nutritionist; a cleaner and washer-woman; a taxi driver; a giver of comfort, love and attention; the list is endless.
However, there are certain things I am NOT and I am constantly reminding my family of this – Mr Good included when it comes to the third one.
1. I am NOT a short order cook.
2. I am NOT a jungle gym or any other kind of playground equipment.
3. I am NOT responsible for everyone elses stuff and I am NOT the only one with eyes or legs.
I’m sure there are others, but these three have become the mantra of my life.
