Combat Pay

Most girls grow up playing some version of dolls or house. We act out our fantasies of what we think grown-up momying is going to be like. Its usually all glamour and no grit. I played out all of those scenarios myself. But never in my wildest five-year-old dreams did I imagine it would be more like one of those army commercials that ends with a voiceover saying "We do more before 8:00am than most people do all day."

As a working mom with five kids - three boys and two girls - sometimes I feel like "an army of one." Everyday is a new battliefield but there is no combat pay.
