I had a bit of an opportunity for a few months to learn some things about motherhood from the inside. When my wife and I moved to this state we agreed that the first one to get a job would go to work and the other would care for our three young children at home. One was entering the first grade and the two others were not old enough to attend school at the time. So as luck, or more likely Heavenly Father, had it my wife found the job first. That meant I was going to learn a lot and have a very interesting several month experience. I stayed home to care for the children, met my daughter after school and prepared dinner daily. I think I was first string on washing the clothes too, but I'm sure my wife could tell you for certain. Over time I began to do day care at my home and had as many as 8 children at home at a time. I learned to appreciate mothers more than ever!
As I think back there isn't a lot of detail sticking out in my mind. Oh, a few specific outstanding experiences and some memories of my learning to make homemade salsa (that was an interest of mine at the time) and I remember writing during nap time, but most of the day to day experience of things is lost to my current memory. So I have a little insider enjoyment of this video clip entitled "In tha Muthahood". It is a rap song that is fun and clean.
I first saw that video on a blog that I read (click here to go to it). Hopefully you can smile and laugh at the video and not wince and grimace. That reminds me of a movie about parenthood that Lisa and I saw years ago. We thought it was pretty funny initially. Others that we recommended it to didn't think it was funny, they said it hurt or was too much like their family to laugh.
