The World’s Toughest Job

There are so many things I never would have guessed I would do as a mother. My days are never dull and always extraordinarily ordinary. Had I known that every day would mean staying on my feet most of the time and always answering questions while also wiping noses and bottoms, I would have rolled my eyes.  Oh what an exaggeration, I would have said. But I quickly slowly learned to expect the unexpected after I became a mom, and the unexpected does so often include standing up and wiping all the things. And somehow, amidst all the chaos and the change, the surprises and the mundane, I can honestly say that I continue to experience joy, every day.

You guys have seen the #WorldsToughestJob video, right? If not, you totally MUST watch it. I couldn’t stop laughing, and then I got all weepy.

Isn’t that the best!? Those job candidates were real, not actors. The job was posted by American Greetings like any other job and many of the requirements were listed. It was not stated that the requirements were referring to motherhood, so the interested employment seekers had no idea. The job posting had 2.7MM impressions, but only 24 candidates applied. Yes, motherhood’s requirements are daunting and sound undesirable when listed. It is hard work and the average person has no idea what she’s signing up for!

This Mother’s Day you can show a mother in your life that you notice all that she’s done and continues to do. The popular American Greeting’s website Cardstore makes it fun and easy to create personalized greeting cards with your own photos and words, and your signature. Then Cardstore adds postage and an envelope and mails your card for you.

I made one for my mom (DAD, DON’T LET HER LOOK AT THIS POST!) and chose the date I wanted it to arrive. Here’s a peek at the one I chose and created:

P.S. If you had some ideas while watching the video and would like to add on to the job requirements for this 24 hour position with no breaks and no pay, you can do just that at on this page for readers.
