New Job Posting: Full-time MOM! Suckers, I mean, applicants apply within.


It generally doesn’t take much to become a parent.

There’s no formal education necessary, no required skills, and no application process.

Imagine, though, if there was. Here’s what the top applicant would look like:


Name: Mama, Mommy, Ma, Hey You, MOOOOOOOM…just not ma’am. Never call me ma’am (it makes me feel old).

Age: 29….forever.

Address: No idea. I’ve never seen outside the laundry room.



-PhD in Reverse Psychology

-Bathroom Kit First Aid certified


Relevant Work Experience:

-Poop Scooper at the zoo

-Negotiator in hospital Psychiatric Ward

-Custodian at LegoLand

-Chef at “Nobody’s Gonna Eat This Anyway” restaurant

-Chauffeur for drunken fraternity


Relevant Skills and Strengths:

-Strong ability to dismiss irritating, repetitive noise

-Hold daytime liquor well (I almost never slur)

-Comprehensive knowledge of suitable profanity for any given situation

-Zero modesty; I can pee in front of an audience



24/7/365. I also function on limited sleep, can eat standing up, and hold my urine for hours (unless I sneeze), so few breaks are necessary.


Desired Pay:

Loving hugs and kisses are all I need.

Just kidding.

I’ll accept wine.

    I so get the feeling. Mine started in 1998, and it has only gotten crazier. Make sure to take some time to take care of yourself, or you will burn out. Wine is good for that.

      “Wine is good for that.” My kind of advice, Mama:)

    Okay this had me cracking up. One because it is totally true. 29 forever.

      I think it’s safe to be 39 when you’re a grandmother, but until then 29 it is:)

    LOL this is awesome!! My husband hates how I am able to ignore the loud & repetitive noises!

    1. Samantha Palmer (Post author)

      I think it’s a means of sanity. Can you imagine life WITHOUT ignoring all the noises?
