I love being a mom! There are SO many blessings that come with the job.
The least of which is being able to escape jury duty! I got a summons in the mail yesterday (groan!) but when reading the fine print noticed that I qualify for a postponement or excuse because I "give care to a dependent from the hours of 8am to 5pm". Whichever person decided that a mom's duty ends at 5pm has obviously never been one, but I'll go with it, if it will get me out of jury duty.
When I called the courthouse this morning to beg off of duty she told me that "just being a mom" doesn't guarantee an excuse. WELL!
But, after further reading the very fine print on the jury form I found out that being a "breastfeeding mother" WILL get me off the hook! Yeah for boobies!! For that reason alone I'll keep up the milk-making. :-)
