That's how I role

I have many roles that I play on a daily basis and when a customer from work sees me doing something that I don't ordinarily do I just tell them I have switched my hat and put on a new one. Not even kidding. Because most of the people that say that stuff to me laugh at my dumb jokes.

But I digress. The main roles I play on a daily basis are: wife, mother, daughter, employee, boss, co-worker and customer service person. Whoo. That's a lot of roles I play. And of course, in every role that I play there are sub-divisions.

As for the wife, that one's not to difficult because my hubby and I are pretty lax in our lives with each other. We try to keep each other informed on what's going on in our day to day lives but we don't ask each other for permission to do things (outside of I'm going to do something right now, is it cool if I leave the monkey with you?) and we kind of just live with each other. There is obviously more intricate parts of our relationship but I'm not going to get into it here.

Mother is probably the most detailed because I have to be on the ball with everything with Leo. Is he fed? Is he dressed? Is he where he's supposed to be? Crap, did I leave him at home this morning or did the hubby take him to school? Who's going to pick him up? Who's going to feed him? Bathe him? Put him to bed? Read him a book? The list goes on and on and most of the people that read this have children so they know what it is like to be in this role. Day after day. And no one wants to change it for the world. And I am right there with them. He's finally pretty much potty trained so we are just dealing with the attitude and I'm ok with that. If we can get rid of it now it won't (hopefully) come back to bite us in the teenage years. Yeah right!

Daughter is probably the easiest role because my mom makes it so easy! I just get to sit and be a daughter. It's nice to be pampered every once in awhile! THanks mom!

And of course the work roles. Those are boring, but they get a lot of my day. Can I do this, is this right? Can I help you? On and on and on.

So those are the roles I play. Do you want to play with me?! To see other peoples take on roles head over to

My favorite role is definitely mother, mostly because there are so many little parts of that role and they change on an ongoing basis, friend, confidant, judge and jury, sentencer (time outs), nurse, jungle gym, good times... You're linked!

I think the variation of roles keeps me from going nuts sometimes.
