The Woman Who Never Gets Sick

Even the super bug that’s been circulating about our household didn’t get her.

The Osbornes have found the gift that keeps on giving this fine holiday season. Our baby, it seems, was the original recipient and though he’s just one, he made certain to pass it on to each and every one of us. (Well, except for Caroline, but more on that in a bit.) He’s gifted some of us directly, other indirectly. Either way, though, kindness beyond his years, don’t you think?

I’ve gotten the gift. Three times, in fact. Possibly four. And each of my children has gotten the gift multiple times, too. Of course, the “gift” of which I speak is the gift of illness.

How thoughtful.

The Mission Statement of Parenthood

I used to be a total white-collar type and when I was, I crafted more mission statements than I care to remember. So shortly after the triplets were born, just for kicks and giggles, I crafted one for the institution of parenthood. After all, if I had a mission statement as a financial services wholesaler, why not have one as a father, right?

The other day, I wondered if I was the only dork who ever thought it’d be neat to have a parental mission statement, so I bounced the concept off of some of my fellow writers at Babble. And I have to tell you, I was surprised at the reaction. Not just the number of people who came back with a mission statement of their own, but also of the caliber of said statements.

So this week’s effort at Babble involves those mission statements. Check them out by clicking HERE.
