Working Mom Wednesday


Linking to Work, Wife,Mom...Life! for Working Mommy Wednesday. For this week the discussion is: Top 5 things I say every day to my Boss, Husband, Charlotte and Co-workers!

Top 5 things I say to Boss every day:

1. Yes I will call Asia tonight to discuss that issue.

2. The quotes are high because of the “great price increase of 2010 from Vietnam”

3. Yes I called the client about that issue.

4. No I haven’t had the baby yet.

5. No projects are not slipping through the cracks; we just don’t have time to put them all on reports to prove they exist.

Top 5 things I say to Husband every day:

1. Why don’t you go work in the garage today?

2. Please put your shoes away in the bedroom.

3. I love you (I think I say this every day).

4. Today I need you to (fill in random chore).

5. No I’m not in labor it’s just another contraction.

Top 5 things I say to Charlotte every day:

1. Hey! Do NOT hit the dog with the broom (cup, or whatever object she is swinging)!

2. Go to your room if you are going to scream like that!

3. I love you, along with a string of other words like how she is the prettiest lady in the entire world and good morning gorgeous lady, etc.

4. Please eat more food.

5. Do you have a diaper? (meaning need diaper change)

Top 5 things I say to Asia co-workers every day in email and SKYPE:

1. Resend (to emails that are left unanswered)

2. This is “Top Urgent” (as adverse to Regular Urgent)

3. This quote is too high

4. No I haven’t had the baby yet.

5. Please fix (insert current crisis)

Hmmmm, looks like I could fit some cheer and joy into this list of interaction.

I think you are ready to have that baby! When I logged into your site, I noticed you only have 15 more days! So exciting :-)

The first two times I read this I thought it read garbage.

"Top 5 things I say to Husband every day:

1. Why don’t you go work in the ((garage)) today?"

Glad to reread that correctly and see that you don't really want him in the garbage. Have a great day! Love this post!

I gave up on asking hubby to put his shoes away. I now just have an area of our bedroom (far corner by his bed) where I "dump" everything he leaves around the house...:)
