Becoming a mother is like...

Becoming a mother is like joining the circus.

No formal education is needed but clown school might be helpful. Necessary skill set includes stamina, energy, and humor. You get to wear funny clothes and act like a goof ball.

But circus life is not always as glamorous as it appears – it involves a lot of hard work and sacrifice. You will be asked to work odd hours, weekends, and holidays. You will need to perform even when tired, sick, or in a bad mood. Oh, did I mention that the pay sucks.

Yet despite all the hard work and sacrifice, being part of a family and making people happy is the ultimate reward. You live to laugh and entertain and love.

Who needs clown school when we are blessed with waking up to a child screaming "Mom!" at all hours of the night? As I stumble to their room, then back to bed through the bathroom...I get to see exactly what they do at 1 training required!
