A mother's résumé

What often gets swept up with the crushed Cheerios and dog hair is the reality that motherhood offers on-the-job training for careers. I am updating my résumé and you can borrow it, because it applies to you too.


A mother can:

•Discern hunger, fatigue and just wanting to be held in a wordless infant.

•Make them think it’s their idea to go potty and eat vegetables.

•Mediate truces between warring siblings.

•Show up despite illness,


personal grief, utter exhaustion.

•Make a toy/game out of absolutely anything available.

•Wipe up hideous substances, then turn and prepare food for the family.

•Engage in tedious, repetitious games because it delights offspring.

•Manufacture liquid nutrition out of mammaries and administer on demand.

•Continually shape-shift to meet


the present needs and challenges of children.
