The other job besides mom
Not sure how many of you have heard this in your lifetime and to be honest, not sure how many times I have said it. This is my line. My schtick, my hey, my hello and how do you do. As you may have guessed from the title, I am a nurse. Yes a registered nurse. I get asked more times than not. Yes I work night shift, for almost 18 years! Ugg you say! Well, if your a true night shift person then you know where I am coming from.
Single mother and you work nights?
I am mother of four incredible children. Three daughters and one son. Even luckier, I have five magnificent grandchildren. Four princesses and one prince. Like many people, I am a single parent. This requires for the most part, the parent, me, to leave for long hours at a time to work, as a nurse in this case to raise and support my family. Lucky for me my children are now adults and don’t require my supervision, but when I first started my kids were 2, 4, 4 and 7. Worked as a nurses aide for my last year in nursing school, so my kids were already used to me being gone at night and when I graduated and worked as a nurse, I stayed on night shift. I have some stories about that.
Follow me for some funny, sad, weird, strange and hopefully interesting stories that you can relate to or just enjoy reading.
Don’t forget the coffee!
